Photos, updates, and a bit of rambling.

Just a very quick post, with a few pictures.
Julia has now headed back to be nearer to the the rest of the family. In the end she decided that farming life was not for her and neither was being four hours from home :) 
As for me, I am staying on and working here full time. I think Vermont agrees with me, as well as loving the place I live and the job I have.
Also, I have become a terrible blogger and am going to try and be a more consistent one in the next coming months. There is far to much happening around here to not post pictures and news about.

Lots of apples! The orchards here on the farm are full of them, and there are far more than we can keep up with! 

Sunday afternoon I got caught up on a bit of house cleaning and then decided to make a loaf of banana-coconut-cranberry bread. I had not realized it had been so long since I had baked anything--the house smelled so good, I'll have to try and do it more often! 

Some raw cheese that I have draining on the sideboard. Once it is done I'll add fresh chopped herbs from the garden to it.

Sprouts, still growing on the windowsill.....

Now that it is growing nippy out I have unpacked a bunch of my sweaters, jackets, hats and scarves. 
I can't believe how fast this summer has flown by! I even noticed driving to church the other day that the leaves are starting to change in the next town over. 

One of my new little friends. A hamster. Her name is Gretel. And yes, she is very friendly.

And I still have many knitting projects that are getting sadly neglected. I am going to have to start getting busy though, because Christmas is creeping up around the corner and I am starting the realize that I am by no means ready for it...
Also, I quick update about the Shop.
 As my life has been changing and things keep on getting busier, I find I have hardly any time for sewing outside of what I make for myself, family and friends.
 Therefore, I'm sure I will not be adding any new items to the Shop at any time soon. What items I have for sale are in the Shop right now and once they are sold, I will not be adding more right away and there is a good chance not for quite some time.


  1. Wow, Rosie! So happy to hear that you have found your life work. I had no idea that you were pondering staying at the farm in Vermont. I'm happy for you. I know you will miss having your sister there with you.
    You gave us a little glimpse of your kitchen....I hope we get to see more in the future. I'm sure that in time your home will be just as cozy as your mama's! I am sure that home is a wonderful place of rest after a long, busy day on the farm!

  2. I bet the family misses you - but I can imagine that Vermont suits you. It's lovely there!

    Glad you have found a church, too, that is always so hard!

    I've missed seeing glimpses into your life and will be glad to see what you share!

    Love to you Rosie!


  3. Your bread sounds wonderful!

    I love the changing of the seasons and how life begins to cry out for more coziness this time of year.

  4. This kind of post is what made me appreciate you so much (and, of course, you precious mother).

    You are Velveteen Rabbit real. :)
