Stale Coffee and Donuts: Please Come.

Acceptance of the loss of “what should have been”.  That idea struck me right between the eyes like David’s stone.  Those weren’t even the exact words my friend had used, but it was the gist of his story.  We were sitting in the church fellowship hall before service, just like most of us did every […]

Remember What Your Grandparents Never Forgot

I grew up a thousand miles away from my paternal grandparents. We visited them maybe once every-other year? I don’t exactly remember. I know it wasn’t too often. Infrequent enough that when I asked my mom to find a picture of me with my grandparents, not one could be found :-(.  By the time I […]

Fall Garden

I had limited plans to plant a late summer/fall garden.  I pulled up onions and garlic several weeks ago.  My idea was I’d throw down a few things in this smallish spot in August and call it good for the year.  I know some farmsteaders go “all out” with multi-seasonal plantings, but that still seems […]

Zone Defense: Chores Edition

I’ve struggled the last few years with trying to find a way to keep the house generally cleaned up with so many little kids running around.  I spent most of the last few years going back and forth between “crazy cleaning lady” and “It’s not worth the effort”.  I had a very hard time finding […]
