Hot’n’sweet Chili Sauce🌶


That statement is not to be taken lightly. We are not a family who enjoys hot/spicy food. This is delicious.

I ended up doubling the recipe. If you like spicy…I suggest 3-4 times the amount of hot peppers or get super spicy ones. 

Finely chopped ingredients cooking down…

Bernardin recipe I followed.

Autumnal Equinox is here.

My world is decending into its deep slumber. 

A frost kissed world is all around me. The fog hugs the trees hiding their changing leaves. 

Frost kissed Calendula

My mornings have been -2°c for the past two weeks. A fire in our little livingroom heater has been lit to take the chill out. 

Sweaters and socks are a must now. 

May you all be blessed with an abundant harvest, warmth through the winter and love of friends and family. 🍁🍂💛

I send special Ostara/ Spring Equinox Blessings to all my friends in the Southern Hemisphere. 🌱🌷💗


Oh what a foggy cold morning. 

The foliage is definitely changing to its beautiful palette of fall plumage. Mother Earth is sure using her full array of coloured pencils. 🍁🍂❤

All my garden plants that were left in the garden were covered in ice droplets. 


Greenhouse clean up

Fall is here…

Autumnal Equinox is only a few days away and the temperature and landscape are changing. 



AFTER….Yet to come…

Goodbye Panels!

This house is FULL of 1960’sand 70’s panel walls. Ugly! Light sucking ugly!

Well, last night at 9:30 we pulled all my books off the shelves and moved the bookshelves out of the way.

September 2017

We were blinded by the light this morning. Oh, this will definitely change the feeling in here this winter. 



September 2, 2007….

After 4yrs of getting to know each other, we confirmed our deep loving friendship…

Mr. and Mrs. Peters …and our wee Alien in womb.

10yrs and waiting. 

Cheers to many more years with my Best Friend. ❤🍷


School already!

Since when is this allowed to happen?!

I don’t ever recall saying these two were allowed to grow up. 🤔 

We actually started schooling at the beginning of this week. 

Miss M worked on Origami, something recently fell in love with…

Miss S…well she has been reading and writing as per the usual and drawing/painting.

We always take the 1st month super slow. Especially as we still have firewood to get and harvest and preserving to get done.

Maybe they’ll allow me to share more of this years activities with all of you.
