Real Rarity – Silly Snippet

While everyone was busy watching the ‘rare’ solar eclipse, the Scarlet Caper made off with something far more rare and valuable for its inability to be reoccurring or recoverable:

Our much vaunted Imagination!

For Everything There is a Season – Thankful Thursday

There are too many things to list about what I am grateful for from this past summer. We’ve done a lot of work on the farm and had a lot of fun hanging out as well. We’ve had new arrivals to the farm and had to say goodbye to others.

I guess the only thing I can think of to be thankful for while keeping this short (because I have to go season some cheese) is to say that I’m grateful for all that a person can learn in a season.

Check out the original Thankful Thursday.

Ferocious or Fearful? – One-Liner Wednesday

Got a new kitten, met him when I found him trying to sneak into the rabbit pen, bit through my fingernail when I picked him up.


Seriously, though, Locutis bit right through my pointer fingernail and it’s still healing. He’s really cuddly though and just loves to sit on people or curl up with our new puppy.

He’s skin and bones though and eats only a little bit at a time (stomach must be pretty small…) He still likes to go and hang out with the rabbits and they are all bigger and stronger than him, so I’m not too worried. (Seriously, our three-week old kittens weigh more than this little guy.)

This was a long and ramble-y explanation. Sorry about that. Summer’s been really crazy for me.

Not Mutually Exclusive – One-Liner Wednesday

Just because you don’t trust someone doesn’t mean you don’t care about them.


Something I realized while watching a show with my niece.

Have you ever been so tired that your nephew threatened to take away your laptop if you kept trying to do family history while that tired?


This actually happens to me a lot. Check out the original One-liner Wednesday.

Proper Tea – One-Liner Wednesday

Sitting here, listening to my nephews (from my two eldest sisters) discuss the correct way to make tea.


Seriously, I’m listening to two teens and an 8-year old discuss all the many ways you can make tea, but which is the ‘correct’ way and just how much sugar should or shouldn’t be added.

It’s just been the four of us during the day this week and thought there are times when I’m super frustrated, I am finding that it’s actually pretty fun. I have never in my life been so outnumbered by boys.

Disappear – Snippet

There were times when Lila just wanted to throw up her hands in defeat, turn and then stomp away, but in the end, she never could bring herself to do it.


This was supposed to be more, but I got the one sentence out and everything else that was supposed to come after vanished like goat milk that my dogs can reach and my brain refused to give me any more.
