June Garden Tour Linkup

YOU GUYS, WE KICKED JUNE’S GARDENY BUTT! When last we toured the gardens, it was almost exactly one month ago.  Not too much had been done in terms of aesthetics, because we were so busy moving in and hacking down 20 years of overgrowth and neglect. Oh yeah, and we were in the middle of […]

Assaulted by Angels

Happy feast of Sts. Peter and Paul! In today’s Scripture reading, it says that Peter, while in jail, was visited by an angel of the Lord who rescued him. But, before actually removing the chains, the angel had to wake the sleeping Apostle. He did this by striking Peter on the side. STRIKING HIM ON […]

Why I’m Glad I Don’t Politic

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Hi there.  My name is Cari, and I’m a sporadic blogger. I’ve been trying to get better.  It was really my intention to update a couple times a week, to drag you guys along with me on this homesteading adventure.  But you know what they say about God and laughing and plans, right? Right. Anyway, […]

For the last month, I’ve noticed a curious “bubble of clean” around the house.  I guess it’s a happy side effect from all the purging we did beforehand, but it seemed like the house never got too messy.  What things needed to be addressed could be addressed in under 10 minutes, and other than daily […]

Quilt of Valor Presentation

So one year and three months ago (more or less), I had one of my many many many many ENFP ideas.  If you know any ENFPs in real life, you will understand this occurrence.  It’s when a new, bright, shiny idea takes hold and the ENFP in question focuses all her attention onto it, while […]

A Story of Prayers and Poop

So get comfy and let me tell you one of the stories about our journey to this place.  It’s a good one, and I’ll try my  best to do it justice. Ken and I had dreamed about moving out to a place with land for years.  Back in Mississippi, we had an offer in on […]
