7 years ago, our family of 7 moved to a small home on the prairie. Our goals were lofty - to live frugally, become more self reliant, grow as much of our food as we could (sourcing the rest locally), and in general, learn to live in a more sustainable way. In an exciting twist of life events, we recently moved "home" to the coast and are adapting our lives and goals to a completely different climate and landscape. Join us as we continue on our journey!

Fire and Ice
Old Man Winter begins the descent.
Hoar Frost to remind us that November is the End of Autumn.
Glass panes laced in fractal art sparkle like Christmas
and the orange glow of the rising sun looked like fire through the ice.
* Edited to add these pictures of hoar frost on our trees from last winter...
