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:

- a hummingbird in the comfrey patch
- in the beehive: eggs, larvae and capped brood, pollen and honey
- the Rhode Island red chicks growing and friendly
- NOT finding a snake in the chicken coop
- a preschool graduation
Silver Sunday

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Romans 12:10 NIV

Why I'm Growing Potatoes in a Trash Can

Why I'm growing potatoes in a trash can this year.

My first attempt at growing potatoes resulted in a rotten mess and no harvest.

A Slice of My Life

The first time I tried to grow potatoes, all they did was rot in the ground.
But I'm trying again, because if nothing else, I'm persistent.
This time they actually grew and have grown up over the 
top of the trash can. We're looking forward to some Yukon Golds!
(And if it works, next year we'll grow lots more.)


My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. You can follow me at:

How to Develop Your Own Soap Recipe

How to formulate your own soap recipe

I've been working on a recipe for shampoo bars. I've made a test batch, but I don't want to share the recipe until I know it's a good one. It needs to cure a bit before I use it.

So how does one develop a soap or shampoo recipe? The same way I cook!
