This Little Piggy

So... I guess I just went 5 weeks without posting.

It's been a crazy month, between work and trying to get my gardens in shape.  But by far, the most exciting thing that happened during my hiatus was the return of the Easton Farmers' Market for it's 260th (!!!) season.  I'm absolutely loving all the fresh produce!

This past weekend, the Pig Placement Network was at the market, and I got to meet this little guy:

So stinking cute!!!  The lady said he's only eight weeks old.  I have no idea if potbelly pigs are even legal in my town, but if they are, I totally want one some day. ;-)

Up next, I'll be posting some garden photos!  I've rearranged and/or improved some areas, and this weekend I'm planning to get a container garden going on the patio for herbs and veggies.

Oh, and while I was off neglecting my blog (oops!) Rebecca of Baby Sloth gave me a Liebster Award!

 'Liebster' means 'favorite' or 'dearest' in German. This award, which originated in Germany, recognizes up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. In accepting the award, the recipient agrees to: Thank the person that gave the award and link back to their blog, copy and paste the award to your blog, and reveal the 5 blogs you have chosen to award and let them know by commenting on their blog!

(I could actually only come up with 3 blogs that are definitely below the 200-follower limit, plus one that doesn't list the number of followers, but is awesome just the same!)
  1. Kathy (Keeping Up With No One) - My wonderful sister-in-law, who started a personal finance blog earlier this year.
  2. Niki (Debt Free by Thirty) - Another fantastic personal finance blogger, and fellow fan of Doctor Who and The Adventures of Pete and Pete!
  3. Faye (A Tree-Climber Goes to Texas) - One of my college roommates who abandoned me to live in Texas, but I love her anyway! ;-)  She only posts intermittently, but it's always fun to read about her adventures.
  4. Alicia (Eco Friendly Homemaking) - I'm actually not sure how many followers she has, so she may be over the 200-follower limit, but you should definitely check out her blog (and her online shop!) either way. :-)


  1. what a cute little piggy! I want one too now!

  2. Thank you for the award! I am kind of glad to know that I am not the only one not blogging :)

    We have been crazy busy 'round our way, but I thought I would share with you my birthday cake idea for all of my kids (their birthdays are June 4th and 7th) A TARDIS cake. Yup! I am too excited to try it and I will definitely share photos. Wish me luck, I am not a cake decorator by any stretch of the imagination, but I have a plan so that may help.

  3. That little piggy is adorable! I want one, too :)
    And congrats on your Liebster award!
