Welcome to the Woods!

Hello and welcome to Falling in Woods. As you can see, FiW is new and I am trying to get it into shape and easy to use. So bare with me while I am drinking from a fire hose on learning a few things. 🙂 Please see the About FiW page to find out a …

Thinking about SPAM

A little while back I was frustrated with the amount of Spam comments I was getting so soon after building this site. Well, that is now fixed after using a spam blocker – thank you, thank you, thank you. But, I haven’t been able to get it off my mind since. And, oh yes, I …

Dehydrated food – purchased

Being we live out away from town and it can snow like crazy here from time to time, I always like to have some food on hand that I have put away and don’t have to worry about. Not to mention should the job situation change abruptly and some extra food bought and paid for …

Let it snow! (And keep the lights on)

It snowed for the first real time off and on throughout the day today and while I am usually not the most excited person (read that as I usually slink around cursing it) in the house about snow and winter, I was actually happy to see it. ****Side note: Being I work from home, there …

Sunday ramble

The wood stove is the best thing about morning. A warm house in the morning without thinking about a gas or electric bill, put a couple logs on it and let it come back to life for the day. Before heading outside, cooked up some oatmeal with dried cherries and brown sugar. Yummy. It is …

Best gloves I have ever used

With this shameless product endorsement – I am not connected in anyway with the manufacturer. Though if they wanted to hire me as a glove model and pay my loads of cash and give me free gloves for life, I would have to put pride aside and accept. 🙂 With the above said, I wanted …

All down hill from here

At least that is what the weatherman told us this morning…hope you enjoyed yesterday’s temp as that is the warmest it will be until Spring. Personally, I think he liked saying that a bit too much! The leaves are making an exodus from the trees, you can’t even see the grass any longer.  Only a …

A change in the air….er trees

Walked out this morning and was hit by what seemed like an overnight change in the leaves. A backyard viewThe road leading to “civil”ization The yard also showed a good amount of leaves that I know were not there yesterday! 🙂 Looks like I’ll be collecting some leaves to put on the garden this weekend. Aside …

Spam….and not the yummy kind!

I have had this site up for a week or so now. I haven’t done a thing yet to try and push it anywhere….figured I would build a backlog of posts first 🙂 That didn’t stop the spam trolls! They seriously are like the scum on top of a pot of simmering beans you scrape …

Dehydrating and chores

The main job for the weekend was to get the dehydrator out for the ten pounds of beans and a bunch of apples.  As I said in a previous post, we already froze a bunch of green beans for normal use. The last ten pounds we picked we wanted to dehydrate for use in soups …

First freeze coming and other ramblings

Tonight will be our first freeze. Really puts some urgency behind the winter preps. There really isn’t much left to do, but every little task seems more important to get done. In reality, we likely have many weeks left of outside workable conditions but winter marks the end of summer projects and is a bit …
