Finally Snowy

So as you may know, this winter has started out unusually dry. We've had a few inches of snow several times, since late September. And overall cold temps, down to -10F. Actually setting the record for the coldest October in the area. But even when it's cold, when the sun comes out and you have dry air, the snow just evaporates. It's called sublimation - the process of a solid turning

Thanksgiving Thoughts

Hello from Burley and I in the snowstorm which is finally blanketing the area is a permanent coat of white for the year. (It's about 6 inches deeper since snapping this photo) I hope you are all enjoying your Thanksgiving Day! You might have seen this before, but thinking about this kind of thing always makes me more

Stretching, Ice, and Flashes of Blue

The photo looks sunny, but it's been pretty cold. Just a few flurries that have all evaporated except for the shadiest spots. But lots of pretty ice crystal patterns everywhere. And Burley loves spending his mornings snoozing in the cold sunshine or practicing yoga in front of the house. I wonder if we people all stretched as consistently

Some Interesting and Different Meals

As you probably know, I very much enjoy cooking and sometimes am asked, "what kind of food do you make?" I never know how to answer this question. I make a lot of things. :) I think one of the wonderful things about preparing your own food is not only the quality and knowing what is actually in it, but being able to experiment with different ideas and flavors to make things exactly the way you prefer. So I rarely make two things exactly the same. Above is something like an open faced "egg macmuffin."  The biscuit made with freshly hand ground einkorn wheat, grass fed

Winter's Firewood Prep Etc.

Winter is well on it's way here. The snow isn't deep yet, but the temps plummeted weeks ago. Burley and I as always, are cozy in the house. And the way we stay cozy, is with the little mini

Canning Summer Bounty

This summer and fall I was able to preserve a lot of wonderful food for enjoyment through the next year. Canning is one of the ways I store bounty for later enjoyment, and I love looking at rows of beautifully colored canned foods on my pantry shelves! Growing and eating various and sometimes unusual colors is so much fun. The above photo is all carrots

Summer Backpacking Trip to the Wind River Range


One of the fun things I did this summer was a 5 day backpacking trip with Burley and a good friend Beth in the Wind River Range. Of all the many backpacking trips I've done over the years, I think this one was my overall favorite. 

So here's a few photos from some of the wonderful

Attempting to pick Blogging back up....


Hello all. It's been a while. My life (this is scary to say publicly) looks as if it might have a bit more free time in the next little bit. So... I'm going to try to catch up on some blogging here! It's crazy how much interest you all have in my tiny house life that even with well over 200 blog posts here and 500+ videos on the channel, I still get more questions all the time. 

So to pick back up here. Burley has grown up a lot in the past year! And turned into an absolutely wonderful companion. The above photo is my tired puppy crashed in
