Waylon woke us up nice and early this morning – just in time to enjoy this amazing sunrise from the bedroom window.
I realize we haven’t posted much lately so I wanted to give a quick update on a few things. Company, Travel and Friends We have had a lot of company over the last couple of months, and I was out of town for work an entire week. We have really enjoyed our time spent with [...]
A quiet moment as Waylon naps and Missy tests out the boat… The boat was made by Sherwin, the previous owner, and is mostly just used to clean out the drain pipe in the middle of the pond. But it makes a nice little joyride now and then too.
I learned my lesson last time and won’t be attempting to get this all done in a single year, but there are several things I’d like to take care of as soon as possible. However, this time around we have Waylon, which makes a HUGE difference in the amount of work we can get done. [...]
It’s official; we’ve closed on the farm! We’ll be moving in later this week, as the previous owners still need a few days to move into their new place. All month we’ve been living out of boxes in a rental house “in town” and it hasn’t been without stress. A prolonged transition, complete with three [...]
On lucky June 13th at about 12:45 in the afternoon Waylon Journey S… was born. He weighed in at 8 lbs, 1.5 oz and was 22-inches long.

This is just a little video clip I took of my lovely, beautiful, pregnant wife Missy. I’m really not one of those Star Wars geeks. I promise. I’m not sure what got into me, but I hope you enjoy it anyway…
Update: B. Nine. Calling B9. Anyone? B9? Oh, that’s me. Just talked to the surgeon. Bingo! I know the Title should have been “Frankenstein’s Monster” but it doesn’t sound as good. Poor Dr. Frankenstein. What’s worse? Having your name used as a verb, or as another proper noun? Google it. So I’ve been procrastinating. Here, let [...]
I’ve been taking my time with the seed catalog from Seed Savers Exchange because we’ve been busy with work, finishing the back room, and trying to get out and about while we still can (before Waylon Journey S. arrives this summer). Yesterday we primered all of the dry-wall, after cleaning up drywall mud from the [...]
I love cooking and preparing food with my oldest daughter, who just turned three. She loves to wash fruits and veggies, stir and mix, as well as add ingredients. Our favorite ingredient is what we call “the special ingredient,” also known as love. We rub the tips of our fingers together as if sprinkling [...]
