Secret Life of Bloggers Blog Party Post, April and May

It's been awhile since I've posted a Secret Life of Bloggers Blog Party Post! The last few months have been characterized by abnormal weather. Snowy, cold and rainy. I've been sewing a lot in an attempt to have a whole new set of Civil War clothing or two. The corset is finished and one dress is close but the hem is too long and I need to redo it. It's at least 160 inches of hand sewing so I've been putting it off. I am also not looking forward to sewing hooks and eyes. :)   


Cleaning artifacts from the archaeological dig at Newlin Gristmill. There is so many artifacts from this dig, it's crazy. The ones I cleaned here were 1860s-1870s period.


I was so happy to see the crab apple trees in bloom. Unfortunately, the rain knocked the petals off shortly after.


The sheep have been sheared.


It seriously felt like we hadn't seen the sun in weeks.


Snow in April.



It's snake season. I've been seeing them all over the place. 


Max at work gets a visit from the dentist.


At least the storms look pretty through the lens.





I've been having a lot of fun saving seeds from tomatoes. It's weirdly fun.


Corn snake in the garden.


It's time for the lambs! We should have more soon. Can't wait.


Spent some time with my mum and grandmum for Mother's Day.

  1. Beautiful pictures! I missed the April snow - I was in Canada for that weekend. Though, I did see flurries in Canada. :)

    I have a sewing question for you - I will e-mail you.
