Before I get too caught up in the winter holidays, both of my children’s birthdays are this weekend. I usually try to postpone decorating, etc., until their special days have passed. I hold off on a tree until after their parties, for example, which totally backfired one year. Bridget had just turned five and Sean
Another sign of Fall: gnats. They really are quite beautiful. Watching them hatch and seeing a swarm of them with their white wings is nice, and then the birds find them and dart amongst them for their dinner. I do not really want them in my yard, so I am glad the birds can enjoy
Another sign of fall: the hatching of termites. As Archie and I sat by our outdoor fire recently, we could see the birds flying about catching them. Both the Robins and the Stellar's Jays seemed to think the termites were most delicious! This is good as not only is our home made of wood, but we

It is getting close to being Fall again. Our bees are slowing down, getting ready to hibernate until spring. Even the dahlias are not putting out as many blossoms as they were a couple of weeks ago. Fall is my favorite time of year: promises of cold and rainy days to come when I can sit in
What did I do this weekend? Saturday, after checking in the latest bunch of Living Light students, Archie and I went to the Little River Airport for a fund raiser for the Little River Fire Department.

Remember "The Pie Song" from the movie Michael? “Pie, Pie, me oh my! Nothing tastes sweet, wet, salty and dry all at once so well as pie! Apple! Pumpkin! Minced an' Wet Bottom. Come to your place everyday if you've got em'. Pie! Me o my! I love pie!” This Father’s Day, the Comptche Fire
Archie and I were talking about what we were going to do on the weekend and I said I would weed out the snapdragons from our wine barrels as they were done. Then I started to think about it. Do they reseed themselves? Do I leave the roots and a few inches of the stalk above ground?

A couple of weeks ago Archie put our Mason Bees out in one of the gardens and we saw our first one this weekend. It probably was a male for two reasons: one, the antennae were long and females have short antennae; two, the three eggs in the tube closest to the sun are male bees.
One of my favorite coworkers, Terilynn, took care of Dan and Cherie’s dogs, Winky and Rudy, while they were in Costa Rica for their anniversary. Her children adored the dogs and have since asked for visiting rights which, of course, was granted as the dogs also love thechildren. It was (and still is) cold here
Last night Archie and I went to a town meeting. Where we live, there are several hundred people living off one particular road with only one way to get to Highway One. They were discussing the possibility of opening another access road and proposed four routes, one of which goes by our home. Several of our neighbors were there and
