Busy summer days, so much going on! Here’s what I’ve been up to behind the scenes…
Sometimes it’s hard to love the unlovable, and yet there are times when we are called to. And when we obey, there are surely blessings to follow. Here’s the story of how I learned this lesson through one grumpy neighbor, and the unconditional love of a little girl.
Homesteading doesn’t have to be done on land in the country. Here are a ton of ways you can begin to homestead right where you are now!
Happy Birthday to me! Check out my new toys…

Vacations are nice and all, but there’s really no place like home!
When there are so many things on your list of to-do’s, it helps to write them all out and put them in order of priority. I’m still working on that last part.

Looking back over my goals for 2011, I’m happy to say we were able to fulfill almost all of them!! Looking forward to another great year of learning and growing more self reliant!
I’m struggling with what is even worth writing about lately.
“I can’t tell you how long I’ve been putting off writing this post. All year, actually. But with Thanksgiving just around the corner, I can’t put it off any longer.”
My grandmother recently mailed to me a copy of a memoir my great grandfather wrote about his life growing up. It was typed on a typewriter… and I absolutely love it. Things were so very different back then. I’d give anything to have him here to lend me homesteading advice!
I felt like I actually accomplished something yesterday!
This is getting old REALLY quickly!
Just when we feel like we are finally getting ahead, we fall back a few steps. I know it happens to us all. Frustrating as it can be, you just have to keep truckin’ along, with a song in your heart and a smile on your face!
Life without the microwave has been surprisingly easy! And I feel so much better having it out of our home.
