Bridget's quilt

I've been making each child a quilt, a project that has taken me about 25 years. (And they are not big quilts.) (And now I realize that I didn't exactly know what I was doing at first, and should really start over.)
Here is Bridget's -- I'm done!


Brussels Sprouts harvest

So I planted enough Brussels Sprouts (four plants) to harvest for Thanksgiving, I hoped. And that is just what happened! Even though the plants actually had frost on them when I brought them in, finally, just before Thanksgiving, they were excellent and made a generous dish for the feast.
I cooked them with chestnuts from the trees on the lane and onions from the garden (and butter, and cream:)

Papa's talk at Magnificat on education

The whole time he was speaking, I was wishing that you could hear him... it was so good...
Magnificat is a little choir school started by Paul Jernberg. I like what he's doing!

...apparently unaware of the calendar...(not all turkeys pictured here, O obnoxious counter of turkeys, I know you well)....

Halloween Heidi

Can't you just see the Alps and hear the goats?





















Isaac is Tintin!

Off to the Feis

Here is Bridget in her Bremer jumper, ready to go to the feis.
She could be a little nervous....

Lessons Learned from the Zoo




ps: I think this is the 100th post. That seems a little momentous. I shall mark the occasion by celebrating the People-Oak Relationship
