Life is pretty good around here right now. Tonight, after Derek goes to sleep, I am going to make this. to eat for dessert tomorrow. I am so busy these days, I don’t cook much to enjoy the process, it’s mostly about a scratch dinner that is also quick to do with a toddler underfoot. [...]

Well, the kiln has no cure. But it can go onward as is as long as I can put up with it. When it goes south, it will go south quick, but is totally usable until then, as long as I ignore what temperature it SAYS it is. I think I found the right temp [...]
Literally. I don’t talk about stuff much, mostly because I try not to aquire it. But there have been a few things in the past week that will add to my life, so they were worth the cost. And I haven’t updated anything vaguely substantial lately, have I. Let’s see. Well, the biggest one is, [...]

It says here…. * All honey is from beekeepers in the Willamette Valley, Oregon—except for Fireweed from Washington and Orange Blossom from California. * The honey is gently warmed to under 115 degrees Fahrenheit and the wax and larger particles skimmed.

Are you lucky, huh? I am unwinding from the day, Derek is asleep. While I was feeding him lunch the doorbell rang, and it was the postman holding my envelope with Holistic Moms flyers…with no stamps on it! Der! He didn’t even tell me what was wrong, I saw it immediately and scuttled off to [...]

My pal Halsted knows so much about getting everything in one place….maybe I will go stalk her site and see [...]
Derek is sleeping. I have been working hard to give him better naps, so that he might become a better night sleeper. Sometimes I feel really overdone with his frequent waking, and ready to try anything to get him to sleep. I don’t want him sleeping through the night (beyond 4-5 hours a stretch) as [...]
