Happy 3rd Birthday to Roscoe and Bo!

About 2 and a half years ago I adopted Roscoe and Bo, two very cute black lab/ bassett hound puppies that I found on petfinder. On a truck, up from Arkansas they came and they became a part of my everydays. They are the greatest companions and definitely the mascots of Flock. We just celebrated their 3rd birthday and I had to share this picture of them with their birthday cake ( organic carrot cake with honey, cinnamon, and yogurt frosting, yum!)

Jimi Hendrix plays Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone"

The last few days I have been discovering the wonderful world of Pandora radio. My most favorite band of all time is the Grateful Dead so naturally we have had Pandora set to our own Grateful Dead station. I wanted to share this cover of Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" by Jimi Hendrix performed at the Monterey International Pop Music Festival in 1967. There's something magical about Jimi's voice singing Dylan's lyrics. I hope you like it.

mom's garden!

I have inherited many amazing qualities from my wonderful mom, but a green thumb is not one of them. She has the most beautiful gardens down at her house on the south shore. Most recently I went down to help her pick the latest freshly grown vegetables. Heirloom tomatoes, red and yellow grape tomatoes, green and purple string beans and purple peppers. Yum! Last night I made a fresh grape tomato pasta sauce that was so delicious, even Ryan who doesn't like tomatoes (!!!) enjoyed it.

fall is in the air at Flock

Elise and I have started working on our newest window display for Fall. Our theme is a woodland wonderland, filled with woodland creatures, colorful mushrooms, and lots of moss and branches. We've decided to hand stitch the mushrooms and woodland animals using felt and yarn. It's a work in progress but our vision is slowly coming together. Stay tuned for photos of our final product soon. Until then, here's a sneak peak at a few owls I've made so far.

Kolarbryn Eco Lodge

I recently read about Kolarbryn, a one of a kind eco-lodge in Sweden and was amazed by the concept. It is a very primitive hotel with no electricity, fresh water from a spring, and sheep skin blankets for warmth. There are just twelve of these little forest huts to choose from and it seems like a truly unique experience to spend some time here. If only I can make my way there someday :)
