Thank you.

Thank you for all the kind words and sweet memories about my mom.
We celebrated her memory with chocolate cake, as promised.  Although the littlest doesn't yike any of the dinner options lately, she seems to love chocolate frosting just as much as her late grandmother.


When you don't yike the dinner (the same dinner you yiked yesterday...and every other time we've had it...) Sigh.

 I think she might pull through. I hope the rest of us do...

Birthday Memories

My mom would have been 68 today.

I had her 15 years, 10 of them where healthy ones.

The memories of those years are so abundant and joyous.  Those years with her shaped me to be who I am today. Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for all I had. 

We plan on celebrating the gift of her life by sharing memories, eating chocolate cake and drinking iced water.

I feel so blessed to have been raised by her.


 Awesome reading shirt that Adrian loves dearly (and I want one that fits me!) and a tractor. $5.00.
 Vintage books and two big magnet photo collage mats for the fridge (it has slots for pictures...looks great filled on the fridge). $7.00 
LL bean fleece lined hoodie, two LL Bean Kleen Kanteens, Ants in the Pants, three vintage aprons (for Audra's birthday). $5.50.


No time like the present to sneak away for a little respite with a good book. 
Even better if you sneak away to read to your 'children' (this is Anna-Kate's 'children', so she says).  

Bundle up Mainers!

This is the weirdest May in Maine.  We start our day in layers, fleece, flannel, wool, turtlenecks and a fire.

 And the warmest part of the day we are somehow picking flowers to press...still in our wool, fleece and layers. I've done hardly anything in the garden yet.  I guess this year I may be like my grandfather and do my planting on Memorial Day. These baby chicks may be in our house for much longer than I desire!  I really need to take pics of them, they are growing rapidly.

Mama Made: Dress

 A vintage dress pattern, but it doubles as an apron too!  She's worn it as both.  I love my little old fashioned dress lover much much much much more than I love sewing buttons.
