Life on a little urban homestead in the making, with ideas for self-sufficiency, food preservation, thrifting,
cookery, organic gardening, crafts, DIYing, vintage stuff, and more...

Time Flies...

Well time flies as they say- chickens are getter bigger, garden is growing fast now, harvesting our first tomatoes, baking, trying new recipes, prepping for canning. Busy, busy, busy, BUT... I try to remember the benefits of NOT keeping a schedule. I believe in the old adage- when you're dying you won't look back and say "gee, think of the work I could have gotten done!" Instead it's about enjoying the time, and doing some "stuff". I do plenty of that. And I'm getting a new sewing machine, after two in a row pooped out. So much for used !

Having the summers off, I do lots of things I never have time to do otherwise- sit out on the deck with the chickens in my pj's, watch the wid blow thru the trees, watch my dog sleep (again), sleep in, stay up late, read, read, read. And catch on on all the great blogs I discovered this summer! Back to work in three weeks, sigh...

And it's about the time to look at/explore my relationships, especially the one with myself. Since it all starts there, you have no where to go, but out. If you can't find peace inside, what's the point?

Buffy and Ellie- BIG girls!

I had browsed thru Ree Drummond's cookbook, then found her website- lots of free recipes!

AND she's getting her own show-

I have to say when I saw something about a "Pioneer Woman" cooking show, I got REALLY excited, thinking it would be some kind of authentic, historical show, well obviously, not quite. I'd LOVE to see something on some kind of homesteading, historical, Foxfire-ish based show someday, but probably not exactly "mainstream"...
