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.
Hey! We’re getting the hang of this and posting these regularly… let’s see how long it lasts 😉
Today’s Terrific Tip(s) revolve around WHERE/HOW to start with Homesteading
What a lovely time I’ve had learning from Melissa.
She’s been a great teacher and I’m looking forward to her upcoming workshop.
I wrote about this chakra journey earlier in the year – you can read it here.
(Just kidding, Batman doesn’t smell.)
I’ll be the first to admit it. I *strongly dislike* Christmas.
“…but Laura, it’s only May…why are we talking about Christmas already?”
Because this year…we’ve decided to have a handmade Christmas. Continue reading
Welcome to TTT! This week, we’re going to talk about taking a moment to yourself!
We live in such a fast paced world. How can you take a moment and slow down?
Right this second you can…
Rub your hands or feet while you’re reading this post
Breathe. Open a window (if you can) and breathe in some fresh air!
Name 5 things you are grateful for, or 5 things that make you happy.
Other activities to try…
A break from our regularly scheduled program…
Just wanted to share the love of a new project of our friends!
Video games, board games, podcast goodness and so much more! They’ve started to blog about our Pathfinder campaign as well! Follow along at www.gamesparkdungeon.com
…except that it is Spring!
Today’s question is….Where did our Spring go?!
The sound of silence…. gently interrupted by trees cracking and falling… the snowy ice mix continues to fall from the sky… terrifyingly blissful. Today is inspired by peace and beauty. The city stands still, breathing ever so quietly.
