I do not call myself a Runner. Not like I call myself a Knitter, or even Geologist/Mineralogist (although I haven’t worked in that field for years), or even a Scientist. Somehow it does not seem part of my identity…yet. It’s something I generally keep to myself, and don’t talk about much, although I run around 60k a week. Mostly on trails. Perhaps that’s the difference. … Continue reading On Running…
This is a long time coming…we have picked the Bärlauch several times, and made pasta from it a few times too. But I have yet to get around to posting about it. Silly, really – it’s not like much else is happening!!! Other than gardening, that is. So much gardening. It’s been very dry, yet the weeds keep coming. Last night, we finally had some … Continue reading Bärlauch Pasta
Spring is in full force here (if you ignore the fact that yesterday it was very cold after a week of hot weather, and the temperature dipped below freezing last night). We have been busy in the garden, working every day all weekend long, and a few hours here and there throughout the week, too. The peas are sprouting, and we put up the supports … Continue reading So Much Bärlauch!

We go shopping only once a week now, getting … Continue reading Baking and Gardening
First, let’s start by the good. The weather has been stunning, and I’ve got some great runs in with magnificent scenery: Things have been…interesting of late. More and more drastic measures are being taken in Switzerland these days to contain/limit the spread of COVID-19. I’m not going to harp on and on about it, since *everyone* seems to be. I’m tired, honestly. And I know … Continue reading No Yeast!
Thank you one and all for so much fun at the Swiss Yarn Festival! I had a blast meeting everyone and am feeling so thankful for such positive feedback. My Etsy Shop will be open again as soon as do an inventory check from the Festival. A few things that I learned from speaking to everyone: Deutsche Übersetzung von Mustern. Mein Es Schneielet wird bald … Continue reading Thank you! Merci! Danke! Grazie!
Let’s start from the beginning: I have some new yarn in stock! I have been waiting for months and months and months for my supplier to get their alpaca sock yarn back in stock – they had a whole shippment that they lost due to water damage, and it took them a while for their farmers to restock suffiencent amounts. But anyway, after a very … Continue reading New Yarn! Food! Tree! Squash!
