My Teeth Haven’t Fallen Apart!

Three years ago I shared my dental woes in, My Teeth are Falling Apart. I had always considered myself fortunate since I’ve only had two cavities.

Over the years my dentists’ have commented how fortunate I was to have so few cavities. That comment is almost always followed by something on the order of “I […]

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by healthy living?

It’s not that you don’t understand or agree with why it matters. You’re sold on the merits of eating whole foods, raising healthier kids, avoiding toxins and chemicals, getting fit, and using alternative remedies.

Last weekend Joe and I went pronghorn antelope hunting. Well, Joe hunted. I went along for the camping weekend. We met up with our friends who were also hunting and had a great time. Everyone filled their tags so we have the start of some game in the freezer.

We camped for 2 days […]

Returning From An Unplanned Hiatus

At the end of 2007 while awaiting the birth of our sweet little boy I dipped my toe in the online world and started a blog. It began as a place I could share about our little guy — thoughts, feelings, etc and then about him and how he was growing then about our […]

UStartupB_Email_Banner (1)

A few years I ago I took a chance.

I decided that I wanted to start my own work from home business. I was already working from home part-time (as a W-2 employee) and had been looking for other work. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for as a regular employee I […]

Lightning Strikes

142

It is hot, hot, hot in Wyoming! And along with hot, hot, hot we get dry, dry, dry.

This afternoon we were happy to have a small thunderstorm roll in. Our happiness turned to nervousness when the straight-down lightning started. With one strike we saw the flash and almost immediately heard the boom of […]

Trout Grilled in Parchment

We’ve been enjoying our beautiful summer with trips to the local lakes and river for fishing. We had a few trout in the freezer and decided to invite a couple of neighbors over for a trout feast.

Our off grid kitchen is perfect for barbecue. In ‘the olden days’ of my fish barbecuing experience […]

Eggs

The last several weeks have been a whirl-wind while we’re settling in to our new home. Settling in might be a bit of a stretch. Since the home isn’t done and there is work to be done on it every day, a good portion of our household items are in a storage unit. We’ve […]

We’ve Gone Off the Grid!

Solar

After almost 5 years of planning we’ve officially moved off the grid.

Almost three years ago we picked out our property.

It’s a 20 acre parcel with amazing views. We’re still in Wyoming as evidenced by the lack of trees.

The property was part of a large cattle ranch that was divided in […]

Hello from Texas!

We are so happy to have a few days to rest and recuperate enjoying each other’s company before heading west. We’ve had a nice visit with some friends who live part of the year in Wyoming near where we are building our cabin. We were pretty excited to find out they live […]

I often find myself singing or humming part of a tune that fits the circumstances. We’ve been in Oklahoma for the last several months and many times the song “Oklahoma!” comes out of my mouth. My husband is often singing “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma” or “Living on Tulsa Time“.

This week the […]

Nourishing Soups for a Cold Winter Day

I love a good bowl of soup!

I can’t think of many better things on a cold day. Especially with a chunk of crusty bread on the side and knowing my bowl of soup not only tastes great but is a nourishing bowl of goodness.

What makes it so nourishing?

Starting with a base […]

Menu Plan Monday ~ It’s back!

In my early days of blogging I posted a menu almost every Monday. This menu served two purposes: ideas for you and a great way to keep me on track.

When I stopped posting the menu I would *sometimes* type one out in a word document or […]

Wintering in Oklahoma

ID-100221932

We’ve gone south for the winter!

I’m pretty sure this makes us snowbirds.

Unfortunately we didn’t quite go far enough south and it is COLD. Especially in the little house we rented with zero insulation and a heater/air conditioner window unit. The unit blows out cold air only. In order to warm up the […]
