Lilikoi butter... the seeds are light and crisp, the curd is creamy, not too too sweet. It smells like a tropical dream~

Last one? Maybe... it’s too lovely to stop. There are at least six scrub-jays in the garden, and all sorts of birds we’d love to identify. The sky is all aflutter, as though it were spring. Must be the winter migration.

When your cat thinks the care package came for him... “Oyster crackers? Cornmeal, acorns? Yes, please.”

... because my hands hurt from twisting wires, and crocheting, but the news gets no better.

We have a spooky house... made from sweets. Trader Joe’s kit made for a fun activity for Maria to enjoy.

We add carrots and rolled oats to @traderjoes’ pumpkin bread... a fall favorite~

This wall greets me with art, with reminders of the ideas, images, and people that bring me joy... I’m glad I see it every morning as I begin another day.

It’s Ada Lovelace Day, and I wanted to mark the day with an honorific and dignified picture of our very own Ada Lovelace Goat... it didn’t go so well. Tasha Tudor wanted some limelight, then Ada tried to look artful, and that was awkward. At least for laughs, I can count on these two.

We’ll catch our breath now that Maker Faire is over, and turn our thoughts to the new season, home, holidays, family, and more making, of course~

1. Cute goat.
2. @instagram, your app has been adding horizontal and/or vertical black lines to my photos. What’s up? Can you help, please?

Up and going. My Chickenblog life is meshing with my @boomnerds life, as I gather greens for another day of floral crown making. Maria @vanfarmer and I taught all day... it was a dream come true to share this project. Here we go, again!
