Random 5 Friday

1.  We have tried for years to come up with the right name for our homestead.  We are now looking to some Celtic names for inspiration.  What do you think of Aisling Acres (Aisling =dream or vision)?

2.  We were thrilled to see our bees out and about for a few hours on Wednesday.  I am so glad they had the opportunity, since it appears that our temps are headed back down to the basement.

3.  I am going to try these muffins this weekend.  How can they be bad!?

4.  We got all of our seeds for the garden sorted this week, ordered some new ones, and have our plan for seed starts mapped out.  Now we will just wait and see what Mother Nature has in store for us...which at the moment that I am writing this is a 50 mph wind.

5. I recently finished Life after Life and have now been reading Monuments Men.   I have been digging being thrust into the WWII era and seeing it from such vastly different experiences.

Please join us!


  1. i love muffins - going to check out your recipe that you will try. so yummy!! ( :

    good luck with your naming of the homestead. that would be tough. we have friends that name everything. from their shoes to their cars ... i don't know how they remember all the names?! ha. ha!!

  2. My middle son's fiancee has twin girls and one of them is named Aiselyn :)

  3. Oh I think Aisling Acres is a perfect name. Muffins yum:) Hug B

  4. I love your Celtic name for the farm. I've been doing the same thing for years and finally came up with Ceilidh (kay-lee) Cottage. I think it's so quirky and delightful to name your house. Love it. :-)

    Good luck making muffins. They look scrumptious!

  5. My mom keeps trying to get us to name our farm -- I resist.

    Will def. be trying your muffin recipe!

  6. Is it time for seeds? My friend asked if I wanted Monuments Men after she finishes it, now I think I will say yes.

  7. Great post and blog. I have always named the homes I have lived in. Aisling Acres is very poetic. Perfect.

  8. Beautiful shots! Love muffins.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  9. I just picked up Monuments Men this weekend. We saw the movie a couple of weeks ago. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
