April 10, 2012


It's amazing to watch the fence come together. Today I went out to chat with the guys and was so moved to see the fencer's face light right up as he shared how he built his first fence at 17 and was hooked every since. It's a joy when people love their work. I hope that brings some magical mojo into this new beauty that surrounds our yard. May it bless this home. Thanks, fencers!

Under Our Willow Tree


Reg is too cute! We made it through the long weekend on almost no food in the house at all. I have no idea how I pulled it off. Thank goodness for fish cakes and spicy noodles! Yesterday we had the 1990s Harvest at Cora's for breakfast and it was so nice to be super full by the time we left. Then we went grocery shopping and I stayed on budget. So nice to have flour, butter, milk, eggs, meat... again!

So cool you shared the photographs of the progress of your fence like that Jamie, it looks awesome! And the story of the guy loving making to make them warmed my heart. I love stories like that.

No worries you didn't take any photos of your holiday weekend Shannon!

I recognized Cora's immediately! I'm glad you guys had a smile-inducing meal. And wow, it always feels so much better when you have the basics on hand.

I'm thrilled with the progress of the fence and have been so happy with the company that's building it.

The one thing I'm trying to breathe through is what the construction has done to the garden. Hopefully we did it early enough that some things will find their way and those plants that don't, hopefully will come back next year. <>

So far my tree peony and mock orange seem to be okay and they are the ones I was most worried about. <>

It was definitely smile-inducing. Love Cora's!

That's awesome the fence people are so great and you're happy Jamie, that rocks.

Change does cause casualties sometimes, doesn't it? Remember, nature usually finds a way. It may take some time... I am thrilled to hear the people and mock orange made it through OK!!!
