Lots accomplished today. I’m pleased with the peach jam and beans. Two pounds of tomatoes, our first cucumber and more yellow beans. Living the harvest life. Have a great weekend!
I laughed so hard I….fill in the blanks. Dating myself somewhat but I lived (live) her dilemmas. I’m tall but not 6′ 2″. Enjoy this week; we have been blessed. Til again
We’ve arrived home from a wonderful few days at the Lake. Lots of sun, sand, and time to relax. On the drive home (about 7 hours) I re-worked my list a few times trying to prioritize tomorrow. What’s really important? What needs to happen to make tomorrow a “win” for me? Here’s the list so […]
Looks kind of messy but the resulting juice, although sour, is tasty. Nick enjoys a bit of cranberry juice each day and since I had some frozen cranberries I decided to make some juice. There will be no waste. The remaining pulp and 1/2 bag of frozen berries will be made into cranberry sauce. What […]
When I watched the following video I felt encouraged to keep on. Nick and I are working our small, urban homestead (really just a small rabbitry and garden at the manse) and like all who endeavor to garden and grow their own food, from time to time we come across discouragements. Some young families are […]
Like I didn’t know it was coming? ha, ha, ha Saturdays are often quiet days for me. We work together on the family budget, tidy up loose ends from the week, and I finalize my Sermon. I go over the message in my head all week, the key points that speak to me and that […]
We’ve been enjoying our zucs this summer. Last evening I sliced one and made chips in the dehydrator. They’re great with butter or humus. Today I sliced another piece of a larger one in long strips to be dehydrated. I’m testing storage for the winter to use as a pasta substitute. Waste ? Nothing. The […]
Am I ready for the rest of the week? How many things on my list need to be tabled for another week? Is my to do list too long to be effective? Sometimes we (meaning I) add everything for the week to the list on Monday. If I don’t take the time to move the […]
Monday is most often the day I choose to be Sabbath; time apart for self care and for re-energizing after a busy Sunday. Our routine is to begin with coffee and our planners. Nick and I compare notes about the upcoming week – the to do lists, outside activities and appointments, and over-all planning. This […]
I started the day with a bad headache. Mostly gone now – settled in the background. I find spinning very soothing. Finally finished the pink/red merino super wash I’ve been spinning. Not sure about the length as its still on the bobbin but ever so soft. What do you think? Selling at .15/yard. Email email@example.com […]
