The Blog starts here...

I've been thinking about starting a blog for several weeks now, and this morning I figured there's no time like the present...I'm getting started while things are still calm and quiet around mi casa (my four-year old son is watching The Wiggles and singing happily along to "Fruit Salad.")

I just took a pan of orange muffins out of the oven to gobble up with the orange mint butter I made yesterday (flavored butters - yummy yummy!) What I hope to share with y'all through my blog is my love of :
  • Being a Mom (the good, the bad, and the downright ugly)
  • Cooking (share my recipe favs)
  • Baking (because life's just better with pie!)
  • Sewing (re-introduce my baby business, Up To The Moon, and my newest venture, Dollville, vintage handmade rag dolls)
  • Knitting (everyone needs their daily fiber!)
  • Gardening (only organic, please)
  • Being Green (no, not Kermit)
  • Reading (currently reading "The Friday Night Knitting Club" by Kate Jacobs)
Well, the muffins are a callin' and my child and I have got to get started baking George's Light Rye Bread so I'll leave you with a quote appropriate for today:

Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.
~Harriet van Horne

I'll be right over for some muffins, and back later for some home-baked bread. You go, girl!

How FUN!! I would love to come and enjoy your garden, bake and sew while Sophia and Jayden play.
