Weekend and Happy New Year!

January 02, 2012


There's a strange emptiness in the house with the Christmas trees gone.
Funny how you get so used to the fullness they provide.
I'm also trying to re-train myself on where the coat rack is {back in it's original spot}.
.....this could take a week or two.

Happy New Year to you all, and I want to say welcome and a heartfelt "thank you" to all of the followers who have found us recently.
We are so grateful.

Have you set any New Year's resolutions?
I've helped the Cobble Hill Farm animals set theirs:
Oliver  - less barking.
Emerson - less snoring.
Jackson - less terrorizing of the sister, less hanging from the curtains and climbing up the tallest part of the chair just to show off your claws, less stealing money and less relocating my shoes around the house.
Cait - less fits when you don't get your way {p.s. the biting does in fact hurt}.
The Chickens - more eggs please.

The egg production is picking up, however, and it's a big however......we should be getting more than we are receiving.
16 girls who lay {in theory} once every 26-28 hours = 16 eggs every other day.
Hmmm.....I'm getting 9 - 12 eggs every other day.
I know that we're short 1 blue and the rest browns but I haven't yet figured out who we're missing them from.

I hope your Holidays were safe and happy and I wish you all happiness and good health in 2012!!

12 Tips For Eating Real Food On A REAL Budget

February 15, 2018



1. Maximize Less Expensive Foods
Part of this tip is getting into the habit of eating in season because in season veggies are typically much cheaper than out of season. The other thing to consider is thinking about ingredients you and your family enjoy that are (either seasonally or year-round) cheaper and incorporating them more into your meals. For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...

Change Your Life In 2018 - February Challenge: Figure Out What To Do With Your Life

February 13, 2018


If you’re just joining in, the “Change Your Life In 2018” series is my quest to make some small changes this year. Rather than setting easily forgotten resolutions I wanted to focus on 12 changes that would help me learn and grow as a person. I’ve chosen to focus on one change per month so that it could not only become a more manageable goal, but I have a better chance at making these new habits...
