Cold Air Kisses & Harvest Wishes

Well, it is getting to be that time of the year. The mornings are darker and cooler, making it difficult to want to get out from under the covers, especially when you have a cute hound cuddled up with you. The air has a gentle nip to it. The trees are starting to turn brilliant…

Diggin’ It

The weather has cooled, which means that it is time to get to work and get some final projects done before the snow flies. Last year it snowed on Oct 26, which is early for our area, however using that as a deadline, we have a little over a month and a half to complete…

200 Ramblings

WOWZA! This is the 200th rambling post that I have written. I am so glad that so many of you continue to enjoy our fumbling and bumbling through landscaping our yard, and have now also been sucked into reading about our favourite garden recipes as well as some of the other hobbies and projects we…

Swinging Gate

We have been enjoying our new fences for a month now, and do we ever enjoy them and the privacy they have provided us! The only problem is that when we were building it, our secondary fence that runs from the shed to the corner of our house seems to have bit the dust. It…

M2C1 Kraftwerks

Now that the yard projects are done until the spring, I have so many shop projects that are just beginning. From items that I plan to sell, to a new bed frame for us, to planter boxes for the garden in the spring, I will certainly be busy in the next few months with all…

Carrot Bandit

We have started to pluck our tasty carrots out of the garden, even the multi-coloured ones which have been a bit of a disappointment. All of them are finally a good size and are fantastic as a side for dinner, dipped in a bit of hummus. K went to hand water a few plants when…

Dog Bowl Stands

Our photo-bombing pooch, Ellie, is getting a little older now, and we notice she sometimes has issues eating from her bowls. It’s like she needs to stretch an arm out and stretch before she can continue. It also could be that she feels that she must gobble her food as fast as possible so that…

Wagging Tails

Throwing it back to a little earlier this year, I thought I would share one of the projects I worked on in our beautiful shop. I didn’t take a lot of photos as this was more of an experiment and I didn’t think the first draft would actually turn out as well as it did…lesson…
