August, so far, has felt much more like early autumn than end of summer. We have hardly used any air conditioning this summer because it has been so very cool even during the day. We have been going out to Point Breeze by Lake Ontario weekly to enjoy free outdoor concerts in a beautiful park out that way. I most always take some knitting with me, we run into many friends and neighbors, and everyone has a delightful and relaxing time of it. This week it was so chilly at the concert I was able to wear a light weight...

[twitter-follow screen_name='ILiveonaFarm' show_count='yes'] Remember I told you all that my son made a custom Subway Roll Sign style print for me for my birthday back in early August? And, I was going to take a photo of it to share with you all, but I had second thoughts about posting that particular one on the Internet. It has some personally identifying landmarks from my life on it, and I don't feel comfortable broadcasting that out to the universe. Please forgive me, it is not anything personal. However, I did want to share this photo with you of a custom sign...

Insomnia leads to a lonely game of Scrabble

I couldn't sleep ... so I came downstairs to do some work.  I used to suffer from insomnia as a child and teenager, and the thing I found most troubling about it was a terrible sense of loneliness I would get. My insomnia started when I was probably eight or nine years old, and continued until I was in my early twenties.  What changed? My children were born, and I got to where I could fall asleep standing up if I had to ... anything to get a few minutes sleep here or there. I rarely have insomnia now, and...

Corn and pumpkins

The farmer who works our fields planted corn this year; it has been four years I think since there was corn growing out there. By this time corn around here (and lots of people grow corn around here) is usually taller than I am. This year, however, we had such a wet spring that many of the crops are behind schedule. Our farmer planted the corn late, which he pretty much had to do because there had been standing water out in the fields. At first, it just looked sort of sad to see little struggling corn stalks coming up...
