The Princess and the Grease Gun

This moment I stumbled upon this past weekend sums up a whole bunch.  Why I love our place here, our home and our community.  Why I love how we spend our time and the way it is shaping our kid's view of the world.

A short list of things I am grateful for:

His grandfather's harrow
The third generation of greasing the same wooden bushings the same way
Her desire to help all day long
In a pink velvet and tulle princess dress
His gentle willingness to teach a 4 year old to use a grease gun
Friends who let us use their tractor whenever we need it
Neighbors who hand down pink princess dresses
A cool sunny day spent outside
New England Pie Pumpkins harvested for winter eating
A field turned under, a blank slate, anxious to be fed and get back to work
Starting the week knowing we have done good work


  1. Hey! Thanks for stopping my blog!!! I love yours...will have to follow you. You and I seem to be on the same page in the same book...only in different chapters.

  2. Hi Anita! Welcome! I am a knitter but I have been wanting to crochet a little more (everyone says its faster)--- those slippers are super fun and my daughter has been begging for some new ones! I'll look forward to following your projects!


Thanks for visiting with us girls...put your feet up and stay for a while.
