Stitch Fix June 2016

Stitch Fix June 2016 Preview by Mid-Life Blogger

What will your personal stylist send? How will you choose what to keep or return? This is my first Stitch Fix since I started my blog so I get to share it with you right from the beginning. As soon as you schedule your Fix, the anticipation begins, wondering what your stylist will choose for you. When …

My Mini Garden Pond

Several years ago at an auction I admired an old water pump and my husband, Scott, bought it for me, but it sat in the workshop for a year or more before I figured out what I wanted to do with it. One day I was sitting on my front porch, looking at a patch …

Spiritual Corridor Daylily

Spiritual Corridor Daylily

This is the Spiritual Corridor daylily.  I bought it a few years ago from Breck’s.  I buy plants through catalogs quite a bit.  Especially in the winter when it’s so bleak outside, I enjoy looking through my plant catalogs and finding new flowers I want to try, and combinations that I think would be nice. Here …

Ruby Spider Daylily

If you love gardening like I do, why not subscribe and get more posts like this one delivered straight …

Comfort Zones

Comfort Zones

I could have named my blog something about leaving my comfort zone, because it seems like I’ve been doing a lot of that lately. In The Birth of Curren Christian Academy, I shared how we began homeschooling. That was a big leap out of my comfort zone. My biggest fear in homeschooling was that I wouldn’t do …

Libby, our Livestock Guard Dog

Livestock guard dog, LGD

I wasn’t familiar with the term “Livestock Guard Dog,” (LGD for short) before moving to the farm. I had heard of the Great Pyrenees breed, but not “Akbash,” a breed which originated in Turkey and means “white head.” A few years into my country life, a neighbor’s dog had a litter of puppies. Through her …

Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix Box by Mid-Life Blogger

In my very first Blog post I mentioned Stitch Fix.  Today I happened to be wearing one of the tops I bought in one of my first “Fixes,” before I decided to blog, so I asked my daughter to take some pictures for me.  I’m camera shy and I never like how I look in pictures, so her …

Not Too Far From Here ~ An Answered Prayer

Not Too Far From Here

There was a tragic accident near our home in Rockport, Texas, many years ago. I still vividly remember the article on the front page of our small town’s newspaper. It was Memorial weekend and a family was coming to Rockport on vacation, but just as they were about to cross the bridge into town, they were …
