Challenges that may come

As the weather has turned cooler, I realized that I needed to get my store tubs down from the loft, put away my summer clothes and get out my winter clothes.  When I climbed the ladder to the storage loft to consider this, I realized that I really needed another set of hands.  Someone to hand the tubs down to. In the mean time, I managed to catch myself in a fall, and have broken my left wrist in two places.  I have thought many times since  ...

From now until Summer…Mud

The Pacific Northwest is a rain forest.  Not the tropical rainforest we hear so much about, but it rains, (a lot), and that is why everything is so wonderfully green. The reason I love summer so much, is there is more sun and less rain for those 3 months.  Until next summer, the season here on the farm could be summed up in a word…mud.  I bought a set of mud rucks just to prepare, and now I’m wondering if my knee high boots will  ...

Ladies Of The Book Club Come To Visit

I have worked to get myself established in Oregon.  One of the first things I needed to do was join a Church.  I found just the place, and immediately went about trying to get connected with others.  There is a Friday Book Club, so I bought the book and joined the ladies for a time of fun and fellowship, and yes, the book too. We meet at various homes, and on this day, they were close to mine.  It was decided that after our meeting, those  ...

Falling Into Autumn

For those of us that live in the Pacific NW, we’ve come to expect rain.  I believe Oregonians have a better appreciation for sunshine that most people do.  We don’t take it for granted.  The reason for the title “Falling into Autumn”, is related to my desire for summer to linger longer.  Summer is the season that brings the most sunshine.  It is green and lush and even on hot days, it’s perfect to me.  This  ...

Dog Sitting in a Tiny House

My daughter and her friend Chris planned to be out of town for a week, so they needed a place for their medium size dog to stay.  I’m familiar with the dog, and I’ve had both of my poodles at their apartment before, so I figured we could manage for a week. The good news is that all the fears that their dog would be depressed and anxious at being left behind did not happen.  There was also a fear that Roxy would whine and cry all  ...

The challenges of a loft bed

Some days, I wonder what I can blog about, and other days, I’m outside, doing things on the farm, or being incredibly lazy and hanging out in the loft streaming movies.  Lately, I’ve been streaming the Olympics (yes, I’m one of those Olympic junkies).  Without a TV, I am not getting nearly as much coverage of the Olympics as I would like, but I do enjoy the highlights and watch some of the live and replay programs on my  ...

Living in the space

I’ve spent a great deal talking about the farm recently.  That’s because summer is the best season in Oregon.  It’s  the season when the sun is out most often, and you have the best weather.  It’s also the time you get projects done on the farm, that have taken a back seat due to weather or just time. I’m getting ready to do a rearrangement in my tiny house.  I had thought about that one piece of furniture I  ...
