Eco-licious

I know this is a horse property we bought but this scary golden-eyed horse “window” outside on the patio is going to have to find a new home… I’m back for some calling out of stuff that I think needs calling out, woo hoo! Fuck civility. “Are we really to believe that the same people who voted for a man…

Week in Pictures

  So I already packed up my pie plates, and yet the rhubarb still begged to be picked. So I (gasp) bought a storebought crust as I also had a big ass bunch of strawberries from the farmer’s market last week that needed to become pie. So I pulled out my copy of A Year of Pies by the awesome…

This weird clusterf**k anniversary

  April 22nd is a weird fucking day for me. First of all, it’s Earth Day. Not weird. Awesome, in fact. My favorite holiday.  I’ve written about it from a technology perspective, as well as from corporate “green team” and volunteer perspectives, Today I will plant bachelor’s buttons and sunflower seeds in the garden, something we’ll not get to enjoy…

my dualities, my life, my journey

I took my love, I took it down Climbed a mountain and I turned around And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills ‘Til the landslide brought it down Oh, mirror in the sky What is love?

Now I’m actually not one of those folks who like the loaves with huge pieces of food mixed up in them (and I do not like…

Week in Pictures

So for the past 2 years I’ve developed my own versions of the 95 Homesteading Skills bucket lists that I found on multiple websites (amen, Pinterest, for so much inspiration!), and #38,┬álearn basic metalworking skills, has just finally been scheduled! I’ve been making excuses for not doing things that are just for ME in the name of preparing for our…

Week in Pictures

This week has been an interesting one. Saying goodbye to the 4 acre property that we knew would turn into a headache rather than a blessing was hard, but ultimately the right decision, and now we wait and see what comes up. The hardest part!! So with that, we are continuing to prepare for the unknown – and one of…

Week in Pictures

“The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable, like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory.” ~ Gary Zukav It’s going to be a long…
