A Slice of My Life



Our very wet spring has given us
large stands of purple vetch, and a 
wild sunflower in the foreground.

Getting My Ducks in a Row


I love waterfowl, whether ducks or geese. I like my chickens a lot, but I like waterfowl even more.

My favorite birds are waterfowl.

I haven't had many: a few ducks, a pair of Embden geese, and now my Muscovy ducks.

Silver Sunday and Being Thankful


And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV


I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- Jesus Christ Who gave His life for me
- those who gave their lives for our country
- wild-growing plantain to relieve the itch of mosquito bites
- rain to water the garden
- wildflowers
Silver Sunday

How sweet are your words to my taste,
    sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Your word is a lamp for my feet,
    a light on my path.
Psalm 119:103,105 NIV

10 Things I've Stopped Buying


At first I had to cut our grocery budget by necessity, but then it also became a quest to eliminate chemicals, harmful ingredients and overly-processed foods.

Ten things I've stopped buying

And then, because we are trying to be more self-sufficient, I began to substitute homemade and homegrown products for some of the things we used to buy. Now it's become a bit of a game to see how little I need from the store, and how seldom I have to make that grocery shopping trip.
