Redesign, Revive, Renew!

Have I let you down?  I’m sorry if I have. Maybe you have wondered what I have been doing for the past couple years. I was suffering from writer’s block. Seriously…. For two years, I didn’t know what to say or what to do with this blog. But now I’m ready to restart blogging again!  I hope you will rejoin me in this endeavor. Before I tell you what I will be blogging about, let me tell you a bit about what I have been doing and where I am right now. What I have been doing In one of my last posts, I … Continue reading

I’m Still Here!

Wow! I can’t believe it has been so long since I’ve blogged. If you follow me on Facebook, you know I’m still alive. Here’s What I’ve Been Doing We took a trip to Northern California to visit family and do the touristy thing in San Francisco. We all had a great time! I made applesauce and cider from about 50 lbs of the 100 lbs of apples I picked in the fall.  The rest of them are in cold storage and I plan on making more applesauce very soon. My husband built me 6 more garden boxes for next year’s … Continue reading

“There’s no time like the present.”  We’ve all heard that one before, but it’s true.  If you want to make a change, even if it’s a small one, you need to start now.  “Just do it!”  Thanks, Nike. Last year I had been buying mostly organic vegetables from my local farmer through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and during the off season from my local grocery store because I am on the GAPS diet to clear up some health issues.  Organic is not an option for me anymore and can be very expensive.  Even though I had met my farmer, … Continue reading

Just getting started

Hello everyone!  I’m just getting started and ask for your patience.  This is a whole new world for me!  I’m still working outside the home until the end of March and am sick as well, so it is a slow start. I have a lot planned for this blog.  I’ll be sharing my new goal to homestead the little plot of earth God gave us, my chronic Epstein-Barr virus/Fibromyalgia journey, and how I’m healing with GAPS and real food.  You can read a little more about me here. If you are interested, I will consider blogging about how I homeschooled … Continue reading
