My garden is in my house, guys. I should have known better...getting all plant-happy and banking on continually warm weather. News flash, Minnesota is not a continually warm weather kind of state. Due to plunging temperatures going under freezing, all plants were carried inside while fighting off an overzealous goat to keep him out of… Continue reading Hot Smoke and Sassafras
A Quick Check In
Hey followers! No, not dead. Not sick. Hopefully it'll remain that way but with the way things are spreading, who's to say how long that will last. I've been struggling to find things to blog about because my minds been in a state of numbness over the past month and a half. It's hard to… Continue reading A Quick Check In
Authentically not Vulnerable in 2020
I was prepared to sit down and let loose a bleeding heart diatribe that has become...to be very honest...familiar. Painfully familiar. Not from me, necessarily. Granted, I’ve had my moments where I’ve been brutally honest about the problems I’ve faced but overall, I don’t spend a whole lot of time being “vulnerable.” And then I… Continue reading Authentically not Vulnerable in 2020

Too Much to Do
The seasons are changing here...quickly.

With the snow came the wind which effectively took care of any leaves clinging… Continue reading Too Much to Do
Guilt, you’re on the bench…Anxiety, you’re up!
I had the best laid plans for getting this post done over the weekend...and week..and a week after that intended day to post. But turns out that a week back to work after a summer off and a switch to an entirely different work setting the following week with it's own rules and regulations to… Continue reading Guilt, you’re on the bench…Anxiety, you’re up!
You Better Work
Some days, I wish I could be as logical as my children. It's either this way, or it's this way. There's no excuse to not be doing what you want to do in their wide-eyed, innocent view of the world they know very little about. Today was certainly one of those days. I stood in… Continue reading You Better Work
Friends in Good Places
It's good to have friends in good places. Friends who don't take you for face value and who call you on your shit because they know someone needs to and they do it in a way that's actually helpful. I had one such friend come stay with me for a week recently. Catey has been… Continue reading Friends in Good Places
I was doing so good. So good! The month of January had me on point, on schedule and feeling good about getting things done. And then February. Ugh...February. Storms, snow days, bad news, lambing, lack of motivation...throw it all on a plate and make a daily meal out of it. That was February. I would… Continue reading Expiration Dates
Have some coffee and chin up, mama. I'm here for you.
