The weather has cooled off here, but is still unseasonably warm. This is by far our most favorite time of year. We have nearly put the garden to bed, except for a few carrots and the garlic growing for next year. The animals are all eating hay instead of pasture and have put on their winter wool and fur. The Jerseys are dark and fuzzy, the cats are fluffy and soft, and the sheep are as wide as they are tall with the deep wool they are carrying.
Our school year has begun, the hot cocoa and apple cider have been flowing, we have snuggled up with so many wonderful books together, and love dinners with a big pot of soup and a fresh loaf of bread.
I am a wife to my wonderful husband and the mama to two beautiful girls adopted from China. We are striving for a simple life. We want to be able to provide ourselves with most of the items we need to survive; only buying things when absolutely necessary. We now strive to provide a portion of our family's food through organic gardening. I cook from scratch, live a fairly frugal lifestyle, and make my own non-toxic cleaning products. Please join us as we stumble toward a more self-sufficient and frugal life together.

So happy I found this and am able to kind of keep up with y’all. Hope you have a wonderful December and it doesn’t get too cold, but I’m sure winter is coming.
