What do the tall trees sayTo the late havocs in the sky?They sigh.The air moves, and they sway.When the breeze on the hillIs still, then they stand still.They wait.They have no fear. Their fateIs faith. BirdsongIs all they've wanted, all along.This Day: Collected & New Sabbath Poems by Wendell Berry An introduction to today's post... Continue Reading →
Friends, we've made it to another Friday. There seems to be no reprieve from heartache, injustice, and fear this year; yet I'm trying to do my job as a mother: to give my children a safe and cozy place to learn and grow and to live a life that makes the world a better place. There's a lot of work to do. But on Fridays I share some of the pictures I've taken throughout the last week and write a few words about what's been going on around The Cozy Burrow, so let's catch up a bit.
Hi Friends, Today I'm checking in about some changes I'm making in the comments section of my blog. In the past, I've always replied to everyone directly in the comment section so that my response is visible to anyone else who reads the comment section. I like doing this because I hope it will spark... Continue Reading →
At least, I hope that Wendell Berry is writing about hope in this poem, because otherwise it feels as though life might be pretty useless. So I'm going to cling to the few sentences of hope that I see in this poem because it's been another gut-wrenching week all around. Here by the road where... Continue Reading →
I feel like I was just writing last Friday's post. I'm not sure how it's Friday again, but I'm here to share a post with pictures and a bit about our week. August the Cat (in the header picture) is living his best life in this cooler weather. Today's high is forecasted to be 63... Continue Reading →
I'm still making my way through This Day: Collected & New Sabbath Poems. I've hit a section in which most of the poems make me stop and relate them to today's world. I had a hard time deciding which to share today, but this one seemed like a nice escape from the human chaos we're... Continue Reading →
One of my 2020 goals was to take more pictures and, as with everything else, I'm using my blog to help me stay accountable. Every Friday I share a few pictures from our week and write quick post. This week has seen a sourdough revival! Read Aloud time!Reading on the floorSourdough pizza with garlic, tomatoes,... Continue Reading →
I read this poem yesterday and thought it would be perfect today. Wendell Berry lives by the seasons - he is a farmer in Kentucky and is well-aligned with the turning of the earth. Here's another poem from This Day: Collected & New Sabbath Poems. The summer ends, and it is timeTo face another way.... Continue Reading →
On Fridays I share pictures from the week. I've been working hard to take more pictures of our lives together and I share them on the blog to stay accountable to that goal! This week's pictures: we're still obsessed with caterpillars, I'm slowly learning more about botany, and the angle of the sun is definitely shifting!
It's the last Sunday of August and I just read something that's perfect for a Sunday post. My new friend, Amy at Hearth Ridge Reflections, just shared it and it was too beautiful for me to just walk away! “As August comes to her slow and dreaming end, the air has a special smell, the...
