Icicle, originally uploaded by papaija2008.

That about sums up life here currently. We haven't seen temps much above 20 degrees Farenheit for weeks. Our router has gone on strike, siting the cold temperatures. So we don't have internet access at home currently. I've been sewing, cooking, taking care of sick kids and learning to judge outdoor temperature lows by how the snow crunches underfoot and how quickly nose hairs freeze.

See you after the thaw!

We just had a mini blizzard this morning and snowplow just finished plowing the driveway.

Gorgeous the frozen bubble!

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
