We spent the early evening working off the sugar from our french toast at brunch at the near by park. It is right on the lake near our house. The migrating geese are plentiful this time of year and amazing in their numbers and volume. We threw rocks into the lake, played on the playground and carried some nice driftwood logs home to use when we rebuild our stairway. I have so much gratitude sometimes for my family and life.
I'm a suburban woman on a quest for the simple life on our 10 acres in the Fingerlakes region of New York. I am living the dream and staying home to raise my two kids while my wife and I try to renovate our 150 year old farmhouse and keep the grapevines from consuming the house. We are a free-range family, and I spend my days with the kids crafting, gardening, canning fruit, and keeping the peace. Some days I'm lucky enough to fit in a little knitting.
