A Slice of My Life

She had a long night barking at howling coyotes and keeping her goats safe. 
Now it's time for a well-deserved rest.


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:

Canning Tomatoes 101

You can can any variety of tomatoes, not just paste tomatoes!

There are tomatoes coming out of my ears.

Okay, not literally, but I did have a whole bunch of them - five dozen or more spread out on the kitchen island, and in danger of going bad.

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:

- rain, rain, rain! Glorious rain in August!
- a grandson's birthday
- my sewing machine
- knowing that the seasons will change in God's timing
- white egrets at the pond
Silver Sunday

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, 
and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Proverbs 9:10 NIV

Sweetness: Honey Bees and Maple Sugar

Today is a "sweet day" - read on about honey bees and maple sugar!

National Honey Bee Day

I'm fortunate to live in a rural area, and to not have any restrictions on keeping bees on our property. Many who live in towns and housing developments with homeowners' associations aren't as blessed. Even if they wish to have a hive or two, there are often restrictions on doing so.
