Plan for Summer

We live in what I like to call vacation land. It's a mile to the spectacular gorge at Upper Treman Park. There's a campground around the corner, a tavern and pizza farm up the road, and a few B and B's. Our neighbors at Enfield Manor B and B are right next door and their lovely patio and fire pit over looks our garden. They have our soap in their bathrooms.

The news I'm hearing is everyone is camping this Summer. Campground spots and B and B's are getting booked up quickly. If you are thinking about a warm weather get-away, now is the time to make your plans.

We spend as much time outdoors as possible in the summer, gardening, cooking, playing. A first aid kit is something I like to have on hand. Even if we are just taking a bike ride to Upper Treman Park, I like to have Waterless Hand soap with me, and maybe a few band aids.

I keep a first aid kit in the car and one in the house. Andy has a small one in his shop, and of course I have Waterless Hand Soap everywhere.

Excellent for minor cuts

You're taking a walk, and one of those pricker bushes snags your pants. As you un-snag your self, you puncture your finger. Ouch...One spritz of Waterless Hand Soap right on that cut will definitely mitigate any problems and you can safely and comfortably go about your hike.

Lavender Essential Oil

I have added some info about Lavender Essential Oil to our website. Read about it lavender-essential-oil.html

Updated Best conditioner for Long Hair

This past week I tried a hair dryer. I'm surprised that the results were less than stellar. My hair seems flatter. hmmm...

Next hair wash, I'm going to try letting my hair dry wrapped in the towel. I am thinking of strategic new ways to wrap that towel.

Yes, I'm copying what I saw a friend with the most fabulous hair EVER, do and she posted it on instagram. if the results are good for me, I'll tell her. lol.

Our new home at The Ithaca Farmers Market

In Booth 6

We had Winter come back for a few days with a damp cold Spring snow this week. The chicks are all under the coop dust bathing and the cats have retreated to their winter beds. But Sat. the weather is back to 60's, sunny and Spring again.

See you at The Ithaca Farmer's Market. 9am-3pm. I got spinach, carrots and visited with everyone. Glenhaven Farm Winery has their Rhubarb Wine again this Spring. Tasty! And John also had a lovely poppy bouquet. Click the Ithaca Farmers Market link below to see his poppies. The photo was just too big for the newsletter.

We are in-between Waid's Apiary and Macro Mama's.

Chickens have personalities too

The drama continues and I like to talk about it. So I'm continuing to write about coop drama, nest box fights, and chicken escapes for private egg laying.

I've even tried my hand at making a video.
