It's Getting Taller


It's getting taller! Can you see our little boy waving? He grabs whatever wood his Papa has cut and scurries up the scaffolding to give it to Mr. Miguel.

Can't Stop

With the Dormition Fast looming (starts Saturday for New Calendar people), I had to make my favorite sweet this week: Peach Galette! 

Peaceful Activity


Our daughter is working on copying an illustration from Brambly Hedge.

Beauty at the Hospital

My husband had to visit a sweet baby boy at the hospital today to bring him Holy Communion. Please pray for him and his family as he was born with only half a heart. 

The property of the hospital has several beautiful buildings. I loved seeing this tower. I could almost envision Rapunzel letting down her long hair from the turret. Can you see the swan on the weathervane? It is so charming! 

We just finished painting the trim on the house and church building and really need to choose a color for the shutters. I loved the color scheme of this house at the hospital and it would look perfect for our stucco and red tile roof. I have to see if we can get some paint samples to test the sage color!

A New Yarn Project

It's time to start another knitting project. This yarn caked up beautifully.  It's Cascade Ultra Pima color no. 3768. It looks just like cocoa powder in real life.

My friend, Mirona, made these wonderful plum and apricot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. They are based on the New York Times Plum Torte recipe that we all know and love. They are lovely treats at any time of day. Thank you, dear Mirona!

My Favorite Summer Fruit

There's nothing like a fragrant white peach on a hot summer day.

Shuffling and Shifting


Our daughter started moving furniture and decluttering her room yesterday evening which resulted in something being shuffled or shifted around in almost every room in our house. I'm still playing around with things today.

A Ramekin Sundae


Ramekins are perfect receptacles for late night sundaes.


At the Mechanic

Is it just me or is there always something catastrophic and expensive that the mechanic finds to fix when you come in for something small?

Wood Ent

Our wee wood ent arrived in the post today! It was hand carved by @7peartree's son! Thank you! He fits right in on our eldest son's shelf!

Things with Wheels


We blessed things with wheels at church today in honor of the upcoming feast of the Prophet Elias.

Never Idle


Our daughter's hands are never idle. I gave her three linen skirts of mine to resize (mainly just shortening the elastic in the waistbands) so that she could wear them. She's been working on them since we finished lunch and is already finished.

Out of Touch

This song reminds me of all the years I spent riding Florence's school bus to my high school while she blared 106.7 Lite FM. 

A Darling Picture

I found this darling pitcher in Eleanor's @feastvintage etsy shop and it is perfect with my favorite roses!
