It's the little things
 

 
Sometimes
you just need to chill, even when you’re shopping.
The two rocking chairs are here for just that reason
The older rocker was Kevin’s grandfather.
The repairs and creeks give it character and can take you back to your childhood.
Our big rocker is just over 20 years old. Bought ...
They Say Things Don't Last ...

 

Check this out. It’s a cement footing for a building my Dad built in 1959.

Recently the initials were surprisingly uncovered when Keegan decided to

raise the roof and replace the walls on this old building.

 These initials are my Dad’s little sister’s Lynda.

We’re not sure who put them ther...

It's a Bit Tattered...

      

 

Do you have a well worn cookbook?

You know the one you reach for first everytime. I do, Betty Crocker, is my go to.

I've used this one since I graduated High School. A gift from a family I baby sat for in the summers.

Mrs. B. had one like it & I scrolled the pages looking for the nex...

Changing Seasons

 

With the shortening days & changing leaves come the thoughts of fall. The sunflowers we planted in June are still standing tall and the pumpkins are slowly ripening.

When I was young my Grandfather Fletcher would tell us that if we were stealing peas we needed to eat the pods too, yuck. We believed him for a while, ...

It's that time again...

We make our annual stop at The Clam Digger for lunch. The seafood is delicious in a traditio...

You did it...

This week is graduation week here in Fredericton and I want to congratulate parents of the graduates. You made it! There were probably days through these past 13 years you were not sure if you would. You know the days when getting to the bus was a challenge or making sure there was something your ch...

Granting Wishes

         This past weekend we volunteered for Children’s Wish Foundation, at Ribfest for the first time. We thought we were busy at January Thaw Equine Expo. What an organization. They work so hard to raise money to grant Wishes.

         The dedication of some of those volunteers is inspiring. I s...
