Sometimes I dislike any “timeline memories.” They can be a let down if, for example, Spring never exists and you go straight from Winter to Summer.
A Homemade Christmas is not a new concept. People have been making presents for others since the beginning of time and cultivating the landscape to bring a little of the outside world indoors. A homemade Christmas is routed in tradition and overall just feels warm, celebrated, and nostalgic.
After a few months crammed into an oversized storage bin (they had more than the recommended amount of room, trust me), our not-so-little ducklings are moving on up!
Hear ye, hear ye! I’d like to announce that we have 2 drakes and 2 hens here at Ferngully! Our not-so-little ducklings are now roughly 4 months old. One more month, and maybe we’ll have our first egg (fingers crossed).

When I read, see, or say this word aloud (and many of its synonyms), I immediately think of the Silence of the Lambs. Feel free to read the rest of this post in my worst Hannibal Lecter impression… “Fava Beans!”
If you’re an avid tea drinker, you’ve probably heard of Yaupon. If you’re not, I’m about to give you an earful! 😀
