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…

Peri-WTF?! (or, having the courage to be free)

So I’m slowly but surely coming to the concept that I’m actually in perimenopause and have been for a number of years. I mean, hell, minus the hot flashes everything else seems to match pretty perfectly, from my fucked up ovaries to my mood swings to my space-out moments. Fact is, in just over two months I’ll be 44. When…

The Best Breast Test: Exploring Thermography (Part Two)

I am back with the second half of my blog series featuring the wonderful Candace Parmer of Radiant Body Thermography here in Portland, Oregon!

Eco-licious

May! Yay! The next stage of blooming has begun in the garden, from roses going all out to the chive blossoms to cornflowers in abundance (a bee favorite) to our sage out front which rarely flowers. Lovely… Here are some other cool things I found out this week I thought I’d share… Shout out for OSMO Polyx-Oil, the low-VOC, plant-based…

Wellness Wisdom: The Truth About Skin Cancer

Okay so I’ve had lots of other things going on lately and because of that, it’s been so so long since I’ve posted a Wellness Wisdom column – and golly gee with the “when it rains, it pours” thing really coming true for me lately… do I have one fun post for you today! So being a fair-skinned native Oregonian…

Tuesday Get an (Eco)Peek! (A new series)

Alrighty y’all, for far too long I’ve been ignoring much of the “Eco” in my blog title, and for far too long I’ve had it in the back of my mind to get back to more of the hands-on stuff I used to do on my blog, sharing what I do to live a bit more green, sustainable, simple, eco,…

Wellness Wisdom: Go For a Walk, Already!

2016 has started off beautifully when it comes to wellness! I’ve joined a gym to get my heart rate up, been more mindful about what I put into my mouth (while not giving up wine OR cheese!), and am hiking once a week with my husband (as well as dropped 5 lbs). With that, I realized today that these gym…
