The life of a traveling, reading, writing, spining and knitting shepherdess.

Hi there!  My name is Sarah Jane Humke.   This is a blog about things that happen in my day-to-day life as well as musings about what goes on around me.  Things that can happen in my day-to-day include (but are not limited to):books, cats, computers, crafts, crochet, dogs,  duct tape, goats, graduate school, greenhouses, happy hooking, horticulture,  international moving, Iowa State University, knitting, letter writing, parents, plants, poop, research, school, sewing, sheep, sock knitting, spinning (like to make yarn, not sweat), travel, weaving, weeding, wool, work and yarn.  I started this blog primarily to keep in touch with all of my friends and family as I made the move from Apopka, Florida to Ivinghoe Aston, England and now to somewhere in the great state of Iowa.  If you have stumbled upon this blog and you don’t have a clue who the heck that I am, don’t worry about it, if you are interested, keep reading!  I’m also putting this out there so that maybe others won’t have to go through some of the searching that I have had to in order to make such big moves.

So, about me….  I have 1 cat and 4 dogs.  I have a degree in Environmental Horticulture with an emphasis in Nursery and Landscape Management from the University of Florida.   Iowa is my home state, I lived there from birth until I was 19 and my parents still live on a farm there.  I spin, crochet and knit and I also read, a LOT!

Please feel free to post comments about things that I have written about.  It is great to know when people are reading it (plus, you may know something that I don’t [not an altogether uncommon occurrence] and it may help grow EVERYBODY’S knowledge!)

    I like your descriptions of driving to Alaska with your folks. You’re pretty hilarious, you know?
    I’m a new knitter as well, and keep making dishcloths. I think I’ll keep reading!

    Hi! Just found your blog. I lived in Orlando a year with my family, and am in Indiana. We went up to Mount Dora to ride Thomas the Train (oh, joy!). My hubby Chris and I will be in London next month for my birthday trip!! I totally plan to hyperventilate in Iknit!

    To really make the most of living in England, and especially in the countryside may I recommend you listen to The Archers each day (except Saturday) at 7.00pm.

    There is a Ravelry group for the Archers so you can ask all the questions you will ever need to know about life in this village.

    Hi Sarah
    I am really enjoying reading your blog and keeping up with what you are doing. I am glad the move back home went well and Malcolm and other animals have settled well. We are missing Malcom here, especially Kali. Keep well and God bless.
