W is for Water
Water is something that any homesteader needs a lot of. As of now, all we have been using is a hose and watering our gardens by hand. It takes a long time and is quite hot in the middle of the summer. I have been known to start hosing myself off to keep coo...

U is for Urban Homesteading
This seems to be a growing lifestyle, at least since I have been on the journey. I would love to live in a more rural area with lots of acres. But, seeing how we don't and can't for some time, I am living my homesteading lifestyle in an urban area. I live i...

S is for Soups
When it is cold out, we eat a lot of soups and stews. I have to be in the mood for them, but my hubby could eat them pretty much every day. Here are a few of our favorite soups and stews. Vegetable Beef Soup is my favorite. So many veggies in a tomato stock...

P is for Pressure Canning
Pressure canning is something that is fairly new to me. I have only been doing it for about 3 years now. I have always been afraid of it blowing up in my face. Honestly, it is really easy to do, once you get the hang of it. I use it mostly to can my veggies...

N is for New Hampshire & NASCAR
A little over 5 years ago, the hubby and I moved up to NH. We lived in MA our whole lives, but always hated it there. We went from the city (blech) to a urban area. However, we are surrounded by farms and have been looking for land of our own farther up in ...

V is for Venison
As a way to help feed my family, the hubby hunts and fishes. A couple of years ago he got his first deer, a young one that still had her spots. However it was at the end of October. The poor thing would not have made it through the winter. She had no fat on...

T is for Trellises
Because of where I live, I always try to grow vertically as much as I can to give me more space to grow more veggies. Pole beans and snap peas are the easiest things to grow on trellises. A couple of years ago, the hubby got some very large broom poles that...

R is for Rheumatoid Arthritis
This is a topic that I, sadly, am very familiar with. I won't go into a ton of detail here, but if you want to read more, I do have a RA blog, Homesteading with RA , (I have been neglecting badly though) and it details my life with it. The link for it is in...

Congrats! As long as the baby is healthy, we never cared what God gave us. We have one of each.
With each successive girl, the questioning has morphed from boy or girl to an increasingly fervent and frantic Are you hoping for a boy? Or, my all-time favorite, Is your husband hoping for a boy? Because, you know, all fathers really want are boys. Girls are fine until a boy comes along (I'm ...

O is for Organic Gardening
First off, what does organic gardening mean? Basically it means not using any synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. I do use an organic fertilizer at times, but I am looking for other ways to feed the soil, like cover crops, grass clippings, chopped leaves ...

M is for Meal Planning
Meal planning is very simple. I hate trying to come u p with something last minute and have no idea what we have in the house to eat. This is key for us to save money on our grocery bill. I start out by sitting down with a list of what I have in my freezers...

Living and loving it up here in New Hampshire
Introduction
I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom of two kids and a wife to my love of 15 years. I consider homesteading a life style and love living simpler. When I can, I love to quilt and embroider. Having Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia makes my life a bit more difficult, but I am learning to deal with the pain and live my life the best I can.
