I have a list like this for every month up to April... BUT I love to change things up! So....what do YOU want?
Comment below with titles, topics, lengths, preferences, and any and all suggestions... I want to create what YOU enjoy most (or know you need the most...lol). ;)
There are over 50 jars of beet, carrot and traditional kraut fizzing away in the kitchen! Spicy carrot hot sauces, fiery green bean kimchi ... fenugreek and ginger veggies...carrot curry sauces...it's been a lot of fun!
Brave and Coconut are so happy to come on as clean up crew and eat my veggie spills....lol
Thanks to miss Raina, my ferment mentor!!
Are you doing any winter food prep? Have you in past years?
Well, I think we are ready? We are in the light pink almost-a-circle shape...lol
As long as Fiona stays on her current track, we will have a lot of wind and rain, but be just fine. From all the discussions with locals more experienced than us - everyone is expecting no power for a few days. I guess we just wait and see!
We've packed everything under the deck nice and tight, we are stocked with wood, water, food and candles, enclosures and tarps are ready for the ducks - we are bringing them inside tomorrow evening until things settle down.
There are videos in the cue for editing... I hope to get them up as soon as possible after the weekend. :)
It's already raining hard and blowing!!
For health class today, Cheysa needed to follow along one of the gentle yoga videos and write down five things that she learned.
This is the report that was returned to me...lol
She rated me 4.5 stars and gave cuddling with Wiley 5...lol
Chey and I made our own deodorants today - so easy!
1/4 cup cornstarch and/or arrowroot power - as you prefer
1 tbs of baking soda
10-15 drops of choice essential oil
(I mixed tea tree and sweet basil. Chey used rose oil)
stir and mix
add 3 table spoons coconut oil, smash up with a fork, it'll go from crumbly to dough like
put in a glass jar and use a pea size amount
Will keep for up to six months - we love it!
This was too funny not to post...
The storm is currently a Category 4 (430pm Friday) and will be a Category 2 when it reaches our province (on the other end - far away from us).
It was a total circus catching the baby ducks with an angry mom this afternoon. No one was happy about being put in carriers in the middle of the day...lol. We didn't want to risk possibly having to do it in the rain or having the ducks decide to stay on the pond and not come back when called. So they've had a day to cuddle. :)
Have a great weekend!
I've had a huge coffee and am ready to go!! This little one was abandoned by Lucy, the mom. 😥We tried to reconnect them, but she kept leaving it behind. Definitely the runt of the clutch so we've been syringe watering, it nibbled on some duckling food, it's drinking on its own now and pooping😜. We'll see if we can get it through the night. I found it early this morning stumbling down the path in the woods by itself, falling over, clearly dehydrated. It's been 12 hours so far and it seems to be doing better than it was. I'll update in the morning!
As we enter our third year of homeschooling, Cheysa is a big part of planning her year and her schedule. It's neat to see her tell us what she wants to do and how frequently, especially when it's topics or activities we didn't know she was interested in. It's going to be a great year!!
I was presented with these lovely gifts for my birthday.
