The Symbiotic Homestead

Have you noticed that everything on a homestead is interwoven and connected?

It's a web of things that benefit us and also benefit each other. It's amazing how closely connected these systems are.

A Slice of My Life

The weekend's ice storm didn't amount to much for us, and we are thankful for that.

Split Pea Soup, a Month of Soups

When I was a child, once or twice a year my father would say "let's go have pea soup for lunch!" We'd pile into the Rambler station wagon and drive two hours up the 101 freeway to Buellton, California. Our destination was Pea Soup Andersen's restaurant, and after waiting in line for a table, we'd eagerly finish up bowls of this magical stuff before making the long drive back home.

Split Pea Soup with Ham

Although my current split pea soup recipe is very different from the famous Pea Soup Andersen's recipe, it still brings back memories of those special trips with my parents and brother.

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:

- our predicted ice storm didn't amount to much ice
- rain
- friendships
- even though it's been sad, this week I've been remembering loved ones that are no longer with us.
- the privilege of prayer
Silver Sunday

When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
Proverbs 31:21 NIV
