Our Stone Mountain State Park Adventure

This past weekend my husband and I decided to take a trip to Stone Mountain State Park.  Neither one of us had ever been there before.  We took our six-year-old and our daughter.  Unfortunately our two other sons weren’t able to go, but that just gives us an excuse to go back.  And since they Read More …

Squash and Zucchini Salsa

Everyday I pick a basket full of squash and zucchini.  Even though these are two of my favorite vegetables, I do run out of ways to prepare them. The other day I decided that I was going to get creative and make squash and zucchini salsa. I remembered how the chef at one of the Read More …

Welcome Summer!

I don’t know about you, but I have been busy, busy, busy.  Our garden is producing like crazy!  I have scaled back this year.  Since we are not growing for market I only planted in two of our 100’x30’beds.  When we grow for market and our CSA, we plant in eight beds.   This is Read More …

Asian Pork Tacos

Since it’s Tuesday I thought it would be fun to share a “Taco Tuesday” recipe.  I cooked a Boston Butt in my crockpot the other day and had leftovers that needed to be eaten.  We were all getting a little tired of BBQ sandwiches, so I decided that I would use the leftover shredded pork Read More …

Learning Through Life, Charlotte Mason Style

When I first started homeschooling 14 years ago, I tried to recreate the classrooms from my childhood.  My husband and I made a corner of our unfinished basement into a classroom.  It worked for, oh, about two weeks.  I am not kidding.  I was constantly going up and down the stairs to change out laundry, Read More …

Because Hiding Under a Rock Just Isn’t an Option

Was 2016 a good year for you?  If your 2016 was like my 2016 it was full of up’s and down’s.  I suppose that Read More …

Heaven and Earth Collide

Life on a farm exposes you to so many things.  Some of those things are joyful, some are stressful, and some are just downright sad.  Death is something that we have dealt with many times.  Even though most of the deaths we have encountered have been expected; like when we process chickens or take pigs Read More …

Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispy Treats

The other day I stopped by one of my local grocery stores, Food Lion.  I only stopped to get a block of Mozzarella cheese.  Well someone had done a great job of making one of the end of the aisle displays very appealing.  It was full of all things pumpkin spice. Well, this bottle of Read More …

My Favorite Essential Oil Recipes For Keeping Children Healthy at School

I was speaking with a friend the other day who was so upset because her son had already missed school due to being sick.   My friend asked me if there were any essential oils that she could use to help boost her son’s immune system.  Not only are there oils for that but there Read More …

Join Me on My Essential Oils Journey

Two years ago my friend Genelle introduced me to something life changing.  Those life changing things were essential oils.  It’s not that I had never heard of them before.  I had picked up a bottle or two at my local health food store, but never really used them for much more than making some homemade Read More …
