Thoughts, Ideas, etc.

This page will be for any inspirational thought (lol, whatever that might be), ideas, quotes or anything else that strikes me as interesting or otherwise worth sharing.  Check back often to see what strikes my fancy from day to day. :)

I'll start with something original - Be Happy :)

Isn't this just the cutest guy you've ever seen????
This just has to make you smile!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Yule, Christmas and any other holiday you may be celebrating this time of year.

Finding yourself doesn’t require that you fly to Tibet
join a convent, or build a meditation room. Just consistently
keep a minimal commitment to empty time.
From Martha Beck

 Close your eyes,
Take 3 deep breaths through your nose to the count of 5 and exhale through your mouth to the count of 5,
Open your eyes.
Feels good doesn't it?
 and just let the smile come.


So very true, they are the best.


Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.
Marcus Aurelius

So true and very much worth sharing...


We are a species that works to make things easier. We’re getting
really good at it. But, unless we drop the idea “life is hard,”
we can’t take advantage of the astonishing ease we have created.
  ~Easy Does It...Insight From Martha Beck

Yes we must.....


This is my inspiration for the day.  These guys are incredible.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

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.
