Please ignore the weeds 🙂 I’ve been gone out of town for the past few weeks. I also didn’t get a chance to thin the carrots like I would have liked to.
This growing season has been an interesting one… I don’t really want to talk about it, but I guess I will…
Hopefully this one won’t be as delayed as April’s was…
At the beginning of July I had the opportunity to go amethyst mining with a few co-worker/friends.
We ventured out to Diamond Willow Amethyst Mine in Pass Lake. It was my first time there and definitely not my last!
If you know me, you know I love amethyst. My ring is even amethyst!
June’s post was eaten by the goats of the internet.
Please stand-by for the retroactive May post and the upcoming July post.
(SO many good things happened in June! Notably E and I had a great visit together. I finished a few books…whatever. It happened*. Moving forward…)
*I may or may not be really upset that my post was eaten.
I’m actually the late one starting this for once…and then it took E 3 months to get his act together.
Even though we are HUGE “pinners” we do have some other “go-to” resources that we trust and use often!
This post is a living document and will change from time to time! Be sure to check back!
Today is Father’s Day.
I’m flooded by so many memories on these “holidays”.
This year I’ve spent a lot of time in reflection due to my training (which I completed yesterday! More on that another time…) and through different processes I’ve come to a variety of conclusions.
One day we’ll sit down and schedule a bunch of these…I swear! 🙂
Today’s Terrific Tip is about making connections.
Having a great support system around you will make a huge difference.
Here’s my ode to Sonia and her crew… they’re so inspiring and have definitely given us some great ideas!
Sonia is the kinda lady you want around. Someone who knows a little bit about everything – she’s foraging, she’s raised a few flocks 😉 and she’s someone who is already living the homestead dream. We only wish she was a bit closer to us 😉
Beyond that – you want to go out and meet people. Get to know your local feed store crew, your agricultural society…find your inspiring people!
The internet is a great resource and a great place to start…my challenge to you though is to get out there and try the old school way*- get to know your neighbours, get to know your local resources… you’ll never know who you’ll meet!
*This challenge is brought to you by my inner introvert, who has to challenge herself to get out and actually talk/interact with people… 🙂
Welcome to another installment of Terrific Tip Tuesday!
Today’s theme is “Delayed” (my flights have been delayed, and thus, so is this post…)
We’re cheating (again!) and offering up another good’n from our friend Sonia (owner of the Happy Hippie Husky and fellow blogger)
Check out her tips on Family Foraging here.
I couldn’t have said it better.
Enjoy the journey! Let’s see those finds!
Home is where the heart is, right?
But sometimes home is also 706 kms away.
Sometimes you find home in a person, not a place.
Therefore, sometimes, you need to bring a piece of home to you.
