Get To Know Your Local Farmer: Cabot Open Farm Sunday

calf at Freund's Farm

Cabot Open Farm Sunday offers the public an opportunity to peek behind barn doors and discover what their neighbor farmers do every day.

Shunning The Sun for The Storm

Painting also kept me busy.

Four more days to go until I finally get in for my behavioral health appointment. It’s been a month of doing pretty much anything I could to keep my head above water.

Knitting like crazy. I lost track, finally, of how many hats I made, and even moved on to knitting one with some gorgeous …

Friday was my first full day on meds, thanks to winter finally arriving Thursday and trapping me at home. Remembering to take this drug twice a day, that drug once a day, plus an iron supplement at some point, and my Zyrtec somewhere in there, too, is a tad…much. So I am currently utilizing the …

And Then, I Broke…

Does Olaf really give warm hugs?

I was well on my way to breaking for months now.

With the cocktail of medications I was prescribed for treating my chronic pain and muscle spasms in my lower back and left leg, my head had become quite…out of sorts. I’ve become less social, knowing I don’t always have the energy to fake the …

Women's March on Washington sister rally in Hartford, Connecticut
