Farming and ganglion cysts!

Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania in Wyoming County is quite beautiful. I had the pleasure of visiting friends who own a fabulous farm on the outskirts of this pretty town. I have zero skills when it comes to gardening and fortunately my friend Sara was more than happy to educate me in the ways of soil and all other things plant related. She also spoke to me about raising chickens, goats and sheep. The chickens are stunning as are the sheep and lambs. Of course with sheep all I see is yarn, but they were darn cute. So were the spectacular Scottish Highland Cattle. Their bull is quite a handsome boy named Connor. I also had homemade pizzas and yummy grilled veggies,but this delectable creature I had for breakfast. How can anyone not eat a Dutch Baby everyday???

Oh yeah, that "baby" can clog your arteries and taste good doing it! I got to eat homemade ice cream with real cream from the cows up the road. Naturally, my stomach handled it well where if I have Rita's or Applegate's I get an upset tummy. Stupid homogenized milk!
Their son is a cutie pie, and my new boyfriend! How fortunate for a child today to grow up amongst animals and learning how to love and work the land.

My Wrist. My lovely beautiful wrist had a cortisone shot yesterday. This is because it has a ganglion cyst. FYI - those cortisone shots hurt like hell and I am not sure how anyone does them more than once! If the shot does not dissolve the cyst, I may need surgery. Good times. Let us hope the shot does its job and I do not have to add another operation to my long list of priors.

Have a terrific weekend!!



  1. I LOVE dutch baby pancakes! I hope they temporarily distracted you from your wrist pains. :( My mom had cortisone shots in her foot and said they helped a lot and she hasn't needed surgery, so I hope they help you too!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

Irish pensioner who lives like we all used to back in the day. Good for her. Read here.

Sometimes it is best to disconnect. To get back to the land, to remove ourselves from the news, read a book, or just take a walk and be present.

Side note: I have to admit that running water and flush toilets are my most favorite inventions so camping is clearly out for me. :)

Have a great day.
