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…

Compost Gardening, Part ?

I don’t know how many posts I’ve made concerning our compost garden, but I’m happy to write that this weekend we finally got the compost put out for our compost garden. We even had enough to start working on a section that will be in the sunshine. We still need to put the wood chips…
