Not Half-Perfect

from “Messenger” by Mary Oliver Are my boots old? Is my coat torn? Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me keep my mind on what matters, which is my work, which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished. (Happy Sunday, everyone.)


The boys and I are teaching at the NOFA summer conference today and tomorrow – wish us luck!  Thanks for all your great questions, can’t wait to share the answers with you! Blessings, Adrie

Yarn Along

It’s [pretty humbling knitting a man-sized sweater – I’m about 1/4 done, and by now I would be finished if it were a child’s sweater!

The yarn from our ewes, Molly and Curly, arrived from […]

Here the clam deep int he speckled sand. Are my boots old? Is my coat torn? Am I no longer young and still not half-perfect? Let […]

Flashback: We Live Here

Sometimes, I’m grateful to look in the archives and find old notes waiting for me.  Here’s some from last April: Notes to self: Next time you want to do some sewing, declare it your Only Goal for the day. It will happen. For that matter, having one goal is always helpful. Don’t panic, other things […]

Flashback: Bring It On

(I originally wrote this post in May 2010, but thought I’d repost it since this is exactly how these days feel, too.) Remember that mantra I shared a while back?  It popped into my head today, as I drove to what promises to be a crazy afternoon of juggling many tasks.  What if we saw […]
