Owl You Need Is

All You Need Is Love, The Beatles

The recipe is simple, so let’s just sing instead.

Love Love Love

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung
Nothing you can say, but you can learn how to play the game
It’s easy


Nothing you can make that can’t be made
No one you can save that can’t be saved
Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be you in time
It’s easy

Wackadoodle

wackadoodle [wakuh-dood-l]
Someone or something eccentric, wrongheaded, bizarre, or foolish, generally in an amusing way and with a mildly dismissive tone.

My kids and I used the word way before I ever looked it up. I’d typically emphasize it by saying wackadoodledoo. When you’re a full-time stay-at-home mom it comes to mind quite often and rolls off the tongue oh so very naturally. 😉 They’re all grown up now, both balancing career and family~one with three pups and a newborn, the other with four pups~and I sure do hope they don’t forget to laugh at themselves and use our word often. Very often.

I commend mirth.

Ecclesiastes 8:15

I thought of it this morning, as I captured a glimpse of a Prince’s feather (Amaranth) propped against my little kitchen window. Sometimes Grace truly amazes me. All times.

See you, littles.

Welcome, October

Hello, harvest moon. Good day, little suns and stars and smiles who gather here and light up this beautiful place and make more room. So much room.

Welcome, October. I made woodland caramel apples just for you, and for my son whose birthday is later this month but I happen to celebrate it all 31 days and then some.

This is the day the Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.

PSALM 118:24


It’s a new month, inspiration is tugging at my plaid shirtsleeve. I’m trying out different tweaks to this page, so don’t get too dizzy now. Have a happy apple.

Magical October, welcome again!

See you, littles.

Hello, Beautiful Benevolence

Dear bitty garden,

Homegrown harvest gifts from friends’ country village gardens have started to arrive~yay~and my head is spinning with creative ideas. I cannot begin to describe how wonderful these simple gifts taste, but I’ll give it a try.
