Here & Now

Loving // Golden wintry afternoons, wood fires at night (and sometimes during the day!) and watching sweet cheeky Bambi grow up

Eating // Homemade cultured butter (a first), lettuce and basil from the garden, ham from our local free range pork producer, and tomatoes from the shop and wood-fired ciabatta from the local artisan deli. This is a back up, out-of-ideas dinner. It's also a rare gourmet treat, that could only have been made better by a loaf of homemade sourdough...

Drinking // Fresh milk warmed with Loving Earth Cocoa and organic Rapadura - heaven in a cup

Wearing // My woolen cape from Pretty Parcel. It keeps the strong winter winds from biting through my clothes when I'm doing farm chores

Feeling // That the world is filled with possibility, and obstacles

Making // Progress on my Clara Sweater and on a few other knitting projects 

Thinking // About my next pattern I hope to release soon, and about all the little Tea Mice that are being created around the globe

Dreaming // Of baking sourdough once new starter is coming to life; I'm hoping to bake with it this weekend

    1. Thank-you Jane! Homemade butter is pretty special, but cultured just makes it even more divine, I believe :-)
