March 18, 2020 – Birth Pangs

Here is a meme on Facebook that I had to laugh at because I found it very true of our family life. I haven’t felt very much panic or fear in this time. 1. As a Christian, I believe that I need to be eternally-minded. If I die on earth, then I go to heaven….

February 26, 2020 – The Memory of Sounds

I was watching a very interesting documentary today called, “Grandfather”. It is about a self-sufficient Latvian man who is 76 years old. He has a very old-fashioned approach to farming, using an old work horse to complete most of the tasks alongside him. There were some sounds in the documentary that touched my soul. One…

February 25, 2020 – A Message and All People

It has been 20 days since I updated. I’ve made the homemade toothpaste, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, and household cleaners. Honestly, most of us are really happy with the outcome of all of them. I also tried some nearly zero waste shopping at a grocery store about 1 hour and 15 minutes away. There is…

Being Seasonal I spent a lot of my 20s and 30s eating low carb, because I was trying to be thinner. I had a lot of stress, so I never really got a lot smaller in the process. Mid-way through 2017, I finally had enough of the stress of watching what I eat. I haven’t…

Ruminating on 2019 isn’t something I’ve really relished, so I put it off. And really, I won’t be putting too much into it either. 2019 summed up: Change, and possible change. Trusting Him through the change and possible change. Even through the strangeness of 2019, we have had peace. We’ve had a lot of people…

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Nearly every morning I get up between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. and go to sit down in what we call the “front room”. Really it is a parlor or sitting room, in the traditional sense, but it’s in the front of the house, so “front room” it is. I spend time reading the Bible and…

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

Nearly every time I write or type “2019”, I get a little panicky. It reminds me of how short time is. It reminds me that it has been almost 20 years since my oldest child was born. Was it really 20 years ago that I sat in the lamaze class, wondering when Lilly would be…

Worn To Thin

I feel like we are constantly playing “catch up” with things to do on the farm. The rain this year didn’t help. Not realizing that we were going to sell produce at a market until February this year made us realize that we didn’t have the garden space prepped for such an endeavor. And spending…
