Fishing on the Ohio

We are not naturals to fishing, I have never fished, my husband did not grow up fishing, and yet my boys really want to learn.

Armed with fishing manuals, making us look like the true green horns we are, we have been hitting the local fishing holes-that is if you can call the Ohio River a fishing hole.  WE have yet to catch a thing, seems we need to read a few more manuals, or better yet talk to some local fishermen.............

Yarn Along

Joining with Ginny this week in the Yarn Along.  It has been awhile since I had a chance to participate, but these gnomes of  Tonya are to cute to resist.
My summer reading has been all Juliette de Bairacli. I first read her Herbal for Farm and Stable and wonder WHY I had not read her before.  She was a charming eccentric lover of animals, herbalist, mother and gypsy.  She is a wise teacher and herbal mentor.  All her books, I have read thus far, inspire and remind me why I started studying herbalism years ago. If you are at all inspired to learn to appreciate herbs, I would highly recommend her books.

Zelie is 3!

It was a great recycled birthday, handmade, thrifted or reused like the doctors box. All wonderful thoughtful gifts without ever needing to go "shopping"
A lovely celebration of family and the blessing of each special one.

{this moment} - A Friday ritual.  Photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week.  A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, visit Soulemama to leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.
