Downsizing

It is crazy times over here as we pack-up, sell, give and loan out items. It is no small thing downsizing from 2,150 sq ft to a fifth wheel and a cottage. We have also spent the last several days cleaning and painting the tiny house.  Everyday we come home exhausted!!! No joke!!! I am…

So it Begins

The transition has really begun! My schoolroom is the first thing I have started packing up, it will also be the first room I set up and organize. We had started schooling for the new year, but we will stick to just working on English and math until the learning room is set up. Then…

A Time of Transition

Here we are, at a transitional point in our lives. As many of you know we bought our house just over 5 years ago and have been working on all sorts of DIY projects making our house a home. Well, we are not exactly done updating the house. But it is time for us to…

Wild Yeast Sourdough Bread

Today I will begin my wild yeast sourdough bread. Now this is a dough that will take some time. It’s not anything like the commercial yeast that takes a couple hours, then punch down your dough, and let it rise, shape, rise again and bake. This is like having a love affair (a serious one,…

Just Keep Running!

Hello Friends! I just wanted to share some things I recently learned about running that have really helped me. Mind you, I am no great athlete, nor athletic really. Just a homeschool mom that has found her rhythm running 5 to 6 days a week and has learned to stop self-sabotaging my efforts.  So let…

A Season In Life

Hello Friends, It was been a great while since I have been here. I have been active, as you can see from my IG account. (That is if you follow me there.) This past summer has changed how we  homeschool around here. Or more accurately, it has changed how I do homeschool around here. The…

Visiting Bale Grist Mill

Our family loves going places. I personally, love visiting historic places.  My kids, not so much, but once there, they find something to be excited about. Or at least be fascinated with. Bale Grist Mill was no different. We arrived at 10:00am on a cool crisp morning, that was perfect for a visit. Now, I…
