Sometimes in the wee hours of the night, my brain is restless and I scour the internet looking to see if I can do something… ANYTHING that isn’t of the standard “norm.” It started with cheese. Mozzarella cheese. When I quit my job in September, my homestead/homemaking skills blew up! I wanted to make, create,…
Patience is a virtue!
Sometimes I dislike any “timeline memories.” They can be a let down if, for example, Spring never exists and you go straight from Winter to Summer.
Sometimes I have days where I don’t want to do anything remotely contributing to part of society. I want to escape. Whether it is in my car (I purposefully allow myself to get lost, sometimes) or on foot. I recently had one of those days, and it was right in my backyard. We have almost…
