atwitter: july

July 29, 2009

I haven’t written one of these atwitter posts in a while. Not that I haven’t been all atwitter–ask my husband about my tendency to yammer on about things. I just haven’t written about it. So, making up for lost posts… our lavender is blooming. 60 plants worth, on our front hillside, right beside our beehive. […]

A few more things that have me all atwitter these days. the girls have arrived! We picked up our package of bees on Saturday, and introduced them to their hive that afternoon.

I never got around to writing an atwitter post last month, so there’s more to share this month. A few of the things that have me all worked up these days: beekeeping.

They’re hilarious, if you have the warped sense […]

November 11, 2008

I’d planned to post monthly on what has me all atwitter, but somehow October slipped by. Which just means more to share for November… a new camera. Finally. Our camera broke right after I started this blog. I’ve been making do with Lulu’s none-too-fancy point-and-shoot. But when you read blogs with gorgeous photos like Uncommon Grace, […]

September 18, 2008

A few things that have me all worked up right now: Finished books. I finally got to this one. It’s the tale of Kingsolver’s family’s year-long experiment to grow as much of their own food as possible–and to eat locally-grown food when they couldn’t raise it themselves. Parts of the book preach to the choir if […]
