10/19/2015 I’m eternally grateful to all you wonderful farmgirls for joining in … enjoying my magazine, reading my books, buying my products, eating my food, and perusing my daily ramblings! There’s a new word to learn that perfectly sums up my gratitude on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1W13oVy

10/20/2015 I’m remodeling my farm.

I’ve learned to avoid deadlines whenever possible, so I’m remodeling my farm for however long it takes. I must say, re-doing my B&B is a kick in the pants. I’m lovin’ that part. I didn’t love all the digging associated with new underground sewer/water/electricity. Mud mounds abound-ed!! One of the changes I had to make that was a tad sad was a 120-year-old pine tree that was rotten in the center and needed to go.

I have a step-by-step gallery on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1GnQz5O

10/21/2015 (Meg) I love art. I also love random acts of kindness, like the post-it note pay-it-forward phenomenon happening at a pizzeria in Philadelphia. So how about this group of kind-spirited folks who go by the name of Art Abandonment? They are coupling guerrilla art with RAOKs in a beautiful way. Instead of grand installations of art for the public eye, the members of this group make individual pieces and leave them for others to randomly find. I absolutely adore the idea that I might stumble upon a creative token that was left behind simply to brighten my day … http://bit.ly/1LFaOsG

10/22/2015 (Meg) “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

That’s a quote from Anne of Green Gables, and it’s resounding in my mind. Fall is hands-down my favorite time of year. We’re finished with harvest and wildfires around here, and thanks to a couple of good soaking rains, the ground is somewhat moist and the air is clean. The neighborhood porches are sporting a pumpkin or two, and I’ve spied more than a few busy squirrels. The month of October also begins with my birthday and ends with my most favorite celebration of all, Halloween. But in addition to all of these great attributes … http://bit.ly/1MGGQEB

10/24/2015 (MBA Jane) For this week’s Stitching and Crafting/Origami Intermediate Level Merit Badge, I began to see paper in a whole new light.

Little bits of trash that rustled through the alleyway? Origami would be-s.

Gum wrappers that mysteriously find their way into the bottom of my car? Paper cranes waiting to happen. Spearmint scented cranes, no less.

Wadded-up manuscripts and doodled-on sheets of lined notebook paper? Origami babies … http://bit.ly/1PJmGjx

10/25/2015 (Meg) To some folks, it might be the junkyard, but to us, it’s mistitled and should be named the treasure yard. Check out the squirrel hanging above our heads—clearly a treasure for someone. He made a good mascot for our excursion.

Looking for inspiration for new projects for both the magazine and our Sisterhood newsletter, Kristi, Cassi, and I decided to venture to the local salvage/treasure yard … http://bit.ly/1WcHM8B

10/26/2015 (Meg) I’ve noticed an occasional teal pumpkin this month, and since teal is one of my favorite colors, I’ve paid attention. I’ve incorporated purple into my traditional orange and black Halloween décor, but never teal, and if there’s a teal trend happening, I want to know about it! Well, there is a teal trend, but it’s not aimed at me and my color crush. It’s aimed at making Halloween even more fun: http://bit.ly/1R9dFO6

10/28/15 The Boston Red Sox hit one out of the park.

But this home run wasn’t hit on the well-known diamond at the oldest baseball stadium in the country, Boston’s Fenway Park, which my daughter and her family just happened to visit last summer.

Think higher. The next time you watch a Red Sox pop fly soar high into the sky, take a gander at the stadium rooftop … http://bit.ly/1kaETsS

If you’ve stopped by my blog today to enter the Giveaways mentioned in the Dec/Jan 2016 issue of my magazine, MaryJanesFarm, I don’t have them up yet. I needed to finish up the winners from the last issue first, but by later today, I should have them up and running. See you later today!!

(Meg) We’ve finally had quite a few rain showers here on the Palouse, and the girls and I have spent many a recent morning outfitted in our rain boots and umbrellas on our walk to school. No complaints here. I still get a thrill when I stomp through puddles!

I’m careful with my stomping, however; there’s rarely a puddle without an earthworm in it, and I’d prefer to not squash them. On a recent return trip from dropping the girls at school, I spent some time contemplating earthworms and puddles, and I thought, “There must be more to it.” I went right home to the Internet … http://bit.ly/20HyK8E
