Strawberries

Happiness. I’m pretty sure I ate a quart straight from the patch yesterday…HWMMS just brought these in tonight. FINALLY getting a decent crop. Goal is to have lots to preserve and store…and share. Maybe in a few years. We currently have about 100 plants producing. And…

Good-Night Owl

And Jenny Tried to Sleep

My brother and I must have made mom read Good-Night Owl with us at least a million times when we were kids. One of our favorites…little did I know 40 years later I would finally really understand the ending as I listen to the very loud…

Climbing Red Roses

Climbing Red Roses

Our first climbing red roses at Weber Wonderland! Currently have six bushes that made it through the winter…goal is to plant a dozen more to line the front porch so they can grow big & beautiful and drape over the railings. Ah, patience…

Garden Update

About 65% complete transplanting perennial medicinal herbs (echinacea, lovage, milk thistle, marshmallow, wormwood, hyssop, yarrow, horehound, valerian, borage & chamomile) and adding new seeds to the Creekside garden. SO MUCH weeding, tilling, planting. HWMMS even cut down a few tiny annoying trees, not that anyone but…

3,2,1

3. Three of my real estate domain names auto-renewed this month. I didn’t want them. I thought I removed the account, but I didn’t. I tried this weekend to talk to someone at the hosting site about it, they couldn’t refund me but they would cancel…

Sunburn Sunday!

Because Saturday sucked, or didn’t go quite as I hoped. I had an early bedtime and woke up at a normal hour this morning. Baby was it cool outside! We had the windows open all night and HWMMS was ready to shut them and turn on…

Saturday

Saturday started off with coffee in bed. HWMMS loves me. It’s been a while since enjoying coffee in bed! Bah, if I knew it was going to be a chilly cloudy day I would have stayed there longer! HWMMS had to get up early(ish) to get…

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I was dreaming about this moment while falling asleep last night. Coffee on the porch with the puppies. Heaven. Outtake: Jordan too, enjoys her coffee on the front porch. Or her coffee anywhere she can get it. Silly girl doesn’t realize puppies aren’t supposed…

A Little Fall of Rain

Do YOU like getting caught in the rain? The rain started to fall as I was driving to work after taking this photo of the sky over Newton Pond at Weber Wonderland. I found it funny that the “Piña Colada” song came on the radio when…

One Step Closer

One Step Closer

HWMMS will never admit this, which is why I need to record this thought on the blog for my own sanity and future reference. TONIGHT while we were walking the doggies around the backyard behind the garage we were looking at all the work and mess…

Muddy Feet

Ah,  Muddy feet. I love dirt. I love mud. I love being barefoot. My feet are probably perma-stained from childhood. This drives HWMMS insane and batty. Messy Jenny. The last week or so it’s been nice and wet and spring like outside and I’ve been taking…

Citronella Plant

Citronella Plant

I bought this citronella plant last Spring as a wee three inch plant. It is the only one of four that made it through the season so inside it came for Winter near the grow lights. Holy Cow. This baby got huge! For scale…since you can’t…

Reminder

Five years ago I wrote this on Facebook. April 19, 2012 All I want to do is plant massive amounts of gardens and trees and raise chickens and rabbits and live off the land with He Who Makes Me Smile at my side while spending time…

Snowy Days

Snowy Days. The local weather people reported from SNOWY SPRINGVILLE yesterday…Happy Birthday ME! This was what Weber Wonderland looked like on Monday, feet of snow melted down to a thick sheet of ice everywhere. This is what it looks like, again, today. HWMMS *might* have been…

Weber Animal Christmas

Weber Animal Christmas. The stockings were hung on the stairway with care, because if on the fireplace they wouldn’t still be there… Jordan and Harley went through their new stuffed ducks in about 27 minutes. Sigh. The GIANT FEMUR BONES will last much longer. Although Harley…

Front Yard Gardens

Front Yard Gardens Why not? The sun seems to LOVE the front of our house, so we took advantage and started front yard gardens. I was not so excited about this idea last year when HWMMS tore up the entire front yard with the tractor, but…

full moon

Full Moon

Camera Phone does not do this FULL MOON justice. Our foyer is lit up! So instead, I took a photo of HWMMS trying to take a photo of said moon through the window. Save

Little House on Weber Wonderland

Little House on Weber Wonderland

It’s getting all sorts of Little House on the Prairie like at Weber Wonderland the last few weeks. I have trays of herbs drying everywhere. Canned lots of homemade chicken, beef and veggie stocks, pickles, peaches, drunken sour cherries and even beef french onion soup. (Pressure…

rain

Rain

If the key to getting rain in Springville is leaving town, I’ll do it again…we almost had an inch yesterday, which I think just doubled the amount we’ve had all season. Save

How Does My Medicinal Herb Garden Grow?

June! Time to check in with the medicinal herb garden. Valerian. I started this from seed. It’s third year of growth so I’m gonna attempt to dig out some root this year (which is where the most of the medicinal properties are…zzzzzzz.) I have more seed…

Master Bedroom Renovations

Master Bedroom Renovations

While I was out at work… the stained disgusting white carpet in our master bedroom found itself outside our bedroom window. I guess we are doing the floors now instead of later. And our bedroom floors are complete!   Save
