|My young sister decided to paint her name on her cubbies... so of course our younger brother had |
to do the same thing. The letters are out of order... Can you guess their names?
|The ones without letters were mine. It made a pattern when in the right order...|
I gave in to the use of somewhat toxic chemicals because I reasoned that most kitchen counters are probably treated with something. And if we do not treat this wood, it will continue to get more damaged and crack (it already did in a few spots). Sigh! I had fantasies of building a toxin-free home, but alas... It is difficult to source toxin-free materials/furniture/finishes (if they even exist), not to mention that if we do find them, they are usually quite (too) expensive. Also, the toxin-free options are often less effective/durable/practical.

|This mama cow on the farm had a still birth. Super sad. |
I am happy to report that she is recovering and doing well.
So now we have fresh raw milk again.
Thank you Mother Nature for such gifts.
On days when we don't have much time, we do a loop around the farm where we live. We are finding that it is a very different place in the night/dark. We've been having the best time searching for salmon in the river with our flashlight, walking in the dark trying not to walk into trees (not always successfully!), rediscovering our other senses: smell and hearing. When we have more time, we go a little farther away to explore in our warm clothes and boots with our headlamps :)!
