I can hardly believe it!

Lately, our lives have revolved around food, Santa, nature, and fish. I don't know if y'all are sick of photos of Luke and his catch of the day, but he's been bringing home Dollys, Silver salmon, and Steelhead. This boy knows how to provide for his family, and he's only ten years old. I admit it: I am proud.

Here's another thing I'm proud of: I totally revamped my website. You have to understand one thing about me: I'm not a technology savvy person. However, in spite of myself, I have managed to make a beautiful website that has gotten a lot of awesome reviews. I can hardly believe it. Check it out here and tell me what you think. Honestly, I am looking for feedback, and that includes negative constructive feedback.

The food I was talking about earlier? Here is some of it. Home made pizzas. Apple pie with the last of our stored apples from the Liberty tree out back. Baked fish with carrots, leeks and kale from the garden. How these vegetables manage to survive with all the deep frost is beyond me. They soldier on bravely in the freezing wind. I love them so.

Steve looks like he's drinking wine, but it's actually salad dressing he made.

I hesitate doing this in this blog space, but I feel I must, because a lot of what we are about is running our small businesses. My small business is giving you 25% off before Christmas, because I want you to support local (me), and I know you haven't done all your Christmas shopping yet. Go here, and enter coupon code “Christmas” at checkout. Thank you!

Let me leave you with impressions of our week. The sun came out once, it really did. But don't let that fool you. It's been mostly grey downpour, causing the rivers to flood.


  1. Hi, I just recently found your blog and read the whole thing from start to finish! Your family is beautiful and I envy you living in the most beautiful state in the union.

    1. Sally,
      How very kind of you, and how amazing that you read all my blog entries from start to finish! That's a lot of reading! I'm glad you like my blog. I am here to inspire and educate, and to be real, and I am always happy to hear feedback from my readers. Glad to have you on board! Many blessings to you!

  2. And that's what I like about your blog. You don't sugarcoat it. You talk about your blessings as well as your "down" times. Looking forward to more.
