I live in the country now… by, m


You know that small town I moved to?  Well, I have a confession to make. I actually moved to a hamlet, 10kms north west of said town.  To a land of dirt roads, farm animals and tractors. A mystery neighbour keeps posting this sign, which quickly gets taken down, presumably by the reeve (hamlet speak for a mayor), only to be re-posted days later in a new spot:

I bake now. I made cookies last week, biscuits yesterday, and muffins today. Sometimes (a lot of times), I burn things. I like to think it’s because I didn’t have an oven in my mini apartment in the big city…


I also hang my clothes to dry outside.  There are frogs in my backyard, and we have a cluster fly problem.  Next, I want to make a garden. But first, I have to disinfect the kitchen for any nuts (there are walnuts in those muffins), because little A is coming to visit in two weeks!! Hurrah! I know it’ll be easy to make a country girl out of her, since she already loves the music so much! Can’t waiiiiit.


About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
