NaNoWriMo time…

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”  ~ Ernest Hemingway November is National Novel Writing Month, lovingly abbreviated to NaNoWriMo (pronounced nano-ry-moh). It’s a crazy time where writers commit to writing a novel in a month. Well, 50 000 possibly very bad words, but words none-the-less, between […]

Slow Morning at the Farm

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”  ~ Eddie Cantor It’s a slow start here at the farm this morning. The air is cool, everything is damp after the night’s gentle showers and all […]

Easy Cheese and Herb Scones

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.” ~ Henry David Thoreau A friend came over for dinner last night.

“I must be overtired’, Buttercup managed. ‘The excitement and all.’ ‘Rest then’, her mother cautioned. ‘Terrible things can happen when you’re overtired. I was overtired the night your father proposed.”  ~ William Goldman, The Princess Bride Harry and I are a little bit tired today, so we’ll keep this post short. We both had medical appointments in […]

Sometimes the Knight doesn’t wear Shining Armour

“He dug his heels into his horse’s flanks and sped down the path. He heard the others call out behind him, but he ignored them. He was sure Karl and Johan and the others would have searched the rosebush and that entire area carefully enough; there was nothing to learn there. But he wanted to […]

Will you join me in December?
