Awakening

The day broke strong and bright signaling the beginning of the weekend.  Warm humidity of melting snow permeated the air, and stirrings within me suggested strongly the possibility of the maple trees awakening, sap running.  Gathering my brace, hammer, and a few taps in my vest pocket, I stepped out into the melting snow, feeling the crystalline crunch…

A New Frontier

I have often wondered when we have traveled down roads, what it must have felt like to be a pioneer in the days of new territories and lands undiscovered, wagons and horses, families, and critters all traveling together into the unknown promises of it all.  They packed it all up, gave away the extras, made provisions for people…

Breathing Room

Because we all need a little breathing room. Some days it’s hard to breathe.  We lose our way, our connection to ourselves in the midst of stress, of the daily to-do’s, in the momentum of living in this fast paced life.  Let’s take the time to s-l-o-w.  Set the intention of slowing our pace, creating an…

Peace Begins With Us

Giant snow flakes float gently earthward creating softness surrounding our little homestead house.  Quiet white envelops us in a peaceful blanket spread smoothly over the valley.  It feels comfortable, a warm welcoming back to center, back to home.

Bread

Bread.  Sacred, broken, nurturing for body and soul.  Bread is universal.  It transcends, elevates, unites, and kneads us together as people.  Bread is part of our sacred ceremony and ritual, it is also a part of daily life.  It supports us, we show love by sharing bread, breaking and partaking together.  Bread heals us.  Bread sustains us.  It…

Making Komboucha Tea

“You’re Really Gonna Drink That???!!!!” This tends to be the concerned consensus from many when they encounter my jars of komboucha tea fermenting on the homestead kitchen countertop.  Years ago, when I was gifted my first scoby aka, starter, these were the exact words my hubby exclaimed while vehemently shaking his head in disbelief.  If…
