To pass the time

Humans are gregarious creatures. We need contact with other humans. Even if only in small doses. This last year has had a profound impact on our ability to follow through on that instinct, and it’s causing a whole host of mental health struggles for people from every walk of life. We need to address that. Everyone keeps talking about how […]

Restoring Our Selves

Such a strange time we live in. Feels like dis-ease is off the charts in every area of life. I am not talking about a pandemic, though the consequences of it have certainly had an effect on people’s overall well being. That’s not what I am here to focus on today. I actually want to talk about self-care. Not the […]

Dehydrating Food

Oh the joys of dehydration. Easily my favorite food preservation technique. The options are countless in what one can do with a dehydrator. My passion for dehydrating started many years ago, because I was new to the idea of game meat, and simply could not stand the gaminess of deer meat. My husband being a hunter, something had to give, […]

Timing

Timing. It matters. As many of you know, I have had these dreams of a rescue ranch for many years. I built my non-profit business, and learned some hard lessons. When I walked away from the non-profit, I kept my business name and logo. The rest of the non-profit status, they chose to keep, but since they had a different […]

Pesky Little Four Letter Word: Hate

I am pretty lucky to have this blessed little life of mine. I sit here in this quiet, snowy countryside wonderland, and life is peaceful. I am lucky to be privileged with this peaceful life. I often relish the fact that I am living a 20 mph life in a 60 mph world. For the most part, I choose when […]

Self Care

Hello my friends. Welcome. I know. I know. You are expecting to read about minerals, right? I haven’t forgotten. Phosphorus will be coming soon. But, with the busyness of summer, I just haven’t had the time to do proper research and bring you a well understood piece. It’s coming though. In the meantime, this site is about so much more […]

Seasons of stillness

What a Spring! With the change of seasons, comes opportunity for personal reflection. This has been one long winter, and one Spring that has been a long time coming. We finally got two days in a row of better than 60 degree temps. Yard work has begun, the perennials have started to emerge. It is time for outside Spring cleaning. […]

Expectation

My goals and dreams are within sight and I have had plenty of the routine disrupting holiday chaos. I am ready to hunker down, get […]

Bring on the Healing

I am feeling compelled to write, but struggling to get back into the routine of it. Once upon a time, I tried to stay out of politics. However, lately it seems that politics are the thing that spur me to share the most. I have alot to say, and am going to try to do so, without offending anyone. I […]

Yellow Leaves. Season of change.

Good day my friends! What a lovely day it is! Fall is just around the corner. Just a little over a month away. Last week I saw the first yellow leaves. The fire season has been an outrageous one this year, and the cooler temps and occasional rain showers bring moments of relief from the smoke. Summer is slowing down. […]
