Spring Fiber Expo!

Fiber Expo has been around in the fall for several years now, but this weekend it makes its debut as a spring show as well! I’ll be there with a new larger booth, and a lot of new stuff. How new? Well, some of it is still damp. It should be dry by tomorrow though. …

An old year ends, a new year begins

Yes, I meant to write this post about two weeks ago, but time passed. But time passing is kind of what this post is all about, so hey, it’s appropriate. 2012 was a pretty good year. It was the first full calendar year of my being completely self-employed, and I still have a roof over …

My plan did not take into account the four hours I spent gardening yesterday, mostly digging things up and planting them elsewhere where they would be happier. You see where I’m going with this, don’t you? Four hours of digging …

Rain!

My garden looks so thirsty! Is there a drought where you are too? It finally rained a bit this morning, but my soil still looks like powder. It need to rain a lot more. At least it isn’t 12,000,000°F out there anymore. I haven’t been leaving the house most days. I am thankful that I …
