Holiday Time

So, what do you think of the holidays?  Do you get excited, get stressed, are you ready for it to be over (almost as it begins), happy to see family, or does it just wear you out?  I think, for me, it's all of the above.

I enjoy my family, and I enjoy family get-togethers and, of course, all the food you only get this time of year.  But I'm very much a homebody, and enjoy my regular daily routine.  I like quiet and normalcy and I like being alone or home with my husband.  I realize those things contradict each other, but I can't help it.  I like a little of the first and a lot of the latter.

Reading Labels

Do you read labels?  I do.  Now, it's become an unconscious thing.  Once I started reading the labels and discovered what was in the foods I was eating and feeding my dogs, it was a progression to continue to read them to determine if everything had all that "stuff" in it.  Mostly, it did.

Then I was told I was going to have a grandbaby (actually a grand-daughter) and I decided it was time to become mostly healthy:)  I had to be able to be around so I could play for a long time.


About Me

I'm a country girl working in the city (50 miles/day). I want to learn all I can about how to do for myself. My husband and I dream of a self-reliant homestead where we can live and work together, raising chickens, goats and rabbits, and growing and canning our own food.
