Handy Dandelions

If you are like most people, you are in one of two camps when it comes to dandelions. There are the folks who absolutely love and treasure them, and there are the folks who see them as a nuisance “weed” and want nothing to do with them. As the title clearly implies, I belong to the “love them” camp. Out […]

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 […]

Winter Produce Blues

Is it produce season yet? No seriously. I can’t be the only one. Do you feel like you look at the same five veggies every time you go to the store? I get so burnt out on the produce available during the non growing seasons. I find myself growing tired of the same old sides by this time of year. […]

Thick and Creamy Yogurt

I don’t recall exactly how I got started making yogurt at home. I think at first it was because we had a ton of milk that a friend sent home from his farm with us. I have never been a huge yogurt eater, but occasionally I will eat a little. My husband on the other hand, absolutely loves yogurt, and […]

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, […]

Blinded by Hate

  Where do I even begin? I woke up this morning with such an urgent need to get things off my mind, that I couldn’t go back to sleep, so I decided that it is time to put my thoughts into words. I have my doubts as to how many of you will read this, much less take anything away […]

Love Heals

Some pretty unhappy people in the world today. I look around me and feel so sad for the ones who are so full of judgement and condemnation. To me, that is a clear sign of their distress. I don’t know how many times I have talked about expectation and shoulding, but it appears I am about to again. Folks, no […]

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 […]

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 […]
