It’s been just too long since I’ve set aside a moment to post. This summer has been a whirlwind. Just this morning has been a whirlwind.
Belle is becoming increasingly independent, which is beautiful but intense when I’m used to my pace, my order. She likes to clip herself into… Read full post »
A week after planting our seeds into peat pellets we have seedlings! I shouldn’t be as surprised as I am but it’s not often that things go exactly like a package says they will.
So. Now what? I didn’t exactly have a solid plan for the steps between seed and fork.… Read full post »
George Carlin said “Life is a series of dogs” and I believe it! There’s just something about a pet that can complete a family or settle a family into their surroundings. At least it seems to be that way for us.
We were moving into our first home and passed a… Read full post »
I’ve never started any plant from seed. 72 pellets full of here goes nothin’!
So I rarely write about what happens inside our house on The Tenderfoot but if there was a day to share today would be the one.
Babe got up with the kids so I could sleep in for an extra couple of hours. There's a voice that keeps me awake to tell… Read full post »
Happy Mothers Day from The Tenderfoot Homestead.
I haven’t written in a while. To be honest life got a little messy over the last few weeks and it took some time to tidy it. www.oceannah.wordpress.com broke my unintentional hiatus by nominating me for a lovely award: A Very Inspiring Blogger Award and I’m quite touched. Thank you,… Read full post »
Each morning, The Little Dude and I look out our window to see what is new. I know he is just having fun pointing to different things but right now it’s easy to think he’s following the same game rules I am. I’m noticing that every tree around the house blooms… Read full post »
A pork femur is the stuff I need out here? Really?
Happy Birthday, Babe! Happy St. Paddy’s, Everyone!
The property was loved for many years, there’s no doubt. It’s everywhere. Sometimes it feels like what’s squishing under my muck boots is that love coming up to cushion my feet. It’s in the melody of the birds that wake us every morning. It lures me to walk to the… Read full post »
Eager to fiddle around and interested to know what we have taking up residence in the pines, Babe and I have been tinkering with a trail camera. When we first got it we’d stick it up in a tree and wait anxiously till the next morning when one of us would… Read full post »
Since we purchased the property from the children of the original owners and we moved at the very end of January when everything was dormant, we have no clear idea of what vegetation we have here. I’ve heard we have blackberries, hostas, some rare irises. The first weekend we were here we… Read full post »
Since we moved here, I’ve gotten in the habit of taking Belle outside after I take TLD upstairs for his afternoon nap. She feels like a big girl when I let her stay up a while after her little brother goes to sleep and she loves our land.
No matter… Read full post »
My birthday is February 15 and for the last twelve years, my birthday has been a lovely extension of the day before. That said, let me tell you why a February 15th birthday can be worse than one on or around any other holiday.
I like to think that I am… Read full post »
We have a few repairs that need immediate attention so we’re collecting estimates for them. I’ve been fielding sales calls and collecting quotes so we can compare the bids and weigh our priorities.Â Honey, shouldn’t we replace the ugly peel-n-stick floor in the kitchen with wood fir… Read full post »
I’d been putting off my dreaded Clean-The-Apartment Day but I decided to tackle the chore this afternoon while Husband was working from home and the kids took their naps.
To brighten my mood, and get something else off my to-do list, I first stopped by the post office to mail Leo’s… Read full post »
We’ve been living on The Tenderfoot for a week and I’m happy to report that the time we spent in the apartment is a thick, impenetrable blur. We are so comfortable here that it’s quickly becoming HOME!
The bedrooms and bathrooms… Read full post »
It’s 54F today and I want to powerwash something. I hope Mr. Groundhog is kind to us on the 2nd. We have projects galore!
A week before we moved out of our apartment, the complex came through and tore down all Â of the trees in front of the buildings. Ash trees with parasites. Anyway, this happened during nap time, and just outside my daughter’s window were three trees to be cut down. I bolted up… Read full post »
