Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity

One of my favorite places to people watch is at the farmer’s market.  There’s such a variety of people, from young families to old women using food stamps.  The farmer’s have their own stories as well.  Some farm full-time, others are helping their parents or grandparents, and some are doing it on the side to…

Thank You Burpee!

I’ve been remiss in thanking Burpee for their wonderful gift basket. Back in July, I participated in a contest on Pinterest for My Burpee Dream Garden.  I wrote a long post here and shared with all of you what I’d do for a garden whether I won or not. Well, I didn’t win.  A lovely woman named…

My Burpee Dream Garden

Burpee has a fun little contest going on over at Pinterest. Oh wait, did I forget to tell you I’m on Pinterest now?  Sorry about that.  Yeah, I started doing it several weeks ago.  It’s a great activity when I wake up at 3 am and can’t get back to sleep.  I know it’s a time…

The Bees Are Back!

I’d love to try beekeeping, but our house is very close to multiple neighbors and I’m a bit leery of having a bee hive in my backyard.  However, each year I’ve tried to make my yard as bee friendly as I can.  The bees are fun (dog #1 loves them – it entertains him for…
