Blerg, I feel blerg...

Ok, this week I am just not feeling motivated to blogify. I don’t know why. I do know that I have been very neglectful of “the list”. I need to pick something and do it. In the meantime, you can enjoy pictures from my lovely Halloween adventures.

But hey, I can also give you a book review (read- filler)

Radical Homemakers

LOVED this book. Once again, I am not nearly as radical as many of the people in this book. But I am trying to be my best. People like this inspire me. I am also very interested in the idea of community. That is something I feel has really been lost. What ever happened to the idea that it takes a village? Why are we so obsessed as Americans with independence? Wouldn’t the safety of a community based life be so much nicer? Read this book. It will make you want to can something.

Over the river and through the woods....


  1. Cool pumpkin! Cool costume! Once again I am in awe of your craftiness! I bow to you, Obi Wan...

  2. Whatever knitting diva! You rock my lame behind with your ability to turn yarn into actual clothing.

  3. No, seriously... You ROCK! You can sew clothes! That is SO awesome! And you have put me to shame with the mere volume of projects you have behind your belt in the past year. AND you cook! AND you bake! And you work full time! With TWO kids! God, I get tired just thinking about it. (AND you blog regularly!!) Once again, I bow...

  4. I don't think "community" and "independence" are enemies. Community is wonderful but, in so many situations, it does NOT take a village. The village is helpful, and wonderful, but not necessary. Knowing how to do things on your own - when the village is not available - is what propelled the pioneers westward and accounts for so much of their success. I think you can have both - we try to, anyway!
