Living Sustainably

Well guys, we've had a time lately. Lots of issues going on with the house and causing structural issues, and lots of resulting water damage. We've lost a lot of clothing, baby/toddler stuff, and lumber we had in our basement - a reminder that we are completely dependent on the Lord to provide for us, … Continue reading Living Sustainably

Nesting

I've hit a period of urgency in my nesting. I've been saying the whole 2nd and 3rd trimester that it feels like Baby is coming early. She's dropped significantly in 24 hours, and while I sensed this would be the case, I'm still not totally prepared. So, because we're done with school, and I don't … Continue reading Nesting

Bathroom Update DIY

I've been working a little as I'm able on updates throughout the house. My biggest focuses have been on areas with damage, or excessive wear and tear, and I've been doing it all whilst keeping small children alive and educated and fed, and nearing the end of pregnancy.

I'm cutting back to the bare essentials! Here's the condensed version of what is happening with us in this season.

First up was cleaning out … Continue reading Quick Projects

Homestead Update:Knitting, Projects, and News

It seems an odd thing to me to be knitting mittens on my front porch in 65° weather in December, but such is life in East Tennessee- Weather is a fickle mistress. In any case, I've completed 2 of 4 pairs of mittens, and am working on pair #3. Mitten in progress, The Knitter's Handy … Continue reading Homestead Update:Knitting, Projects, and News

Homestead Update and Kitchen Remodel Progress

Wow. Allow me to pause for a moment to let my head stop spinning. Ok. It has been a whirlwind couple of days for us. We had a few fellas from church come out to help us put in the new floor.
