I Grew Roots

Some people grow wings. They want to see the world. Climb to the highest mountain. Travel to anywhere at any given time. All they need is a good wind and a couple of dollars and they fly away. They have adventures and seek excitement wherever they go. To live is to fly. My sister is this way. She grew wings. She goes wherever she feels drawn. She’s an adventurer and…

Raw Milk

Raw Milk

Y’all I’m just going to say it. We drink raw milk. Bless my stars and garters I must clutch my pearls! I know. I know. I thought you might say that. Raw milk is illegal in Canada. I literally feel like an outlaw every time I pour myself a big ol’gass of it. Which happens every night. April, criminal at large! No really. I am allowed to produce it, but…

My heart is ready to explode into a thousand tiny pieces because it cannot contain the joy. WE BOUGHT…

Homemade Hummus

If there is one thing that I hope is in heaven, it’s hummus. And olives. And pickles. And lasagna. And a dariy cow. …. Where was I? Oh ya. On earth. With everything but the dairy cow.…

Eating Local – Getting Started

Eating Local – Getting Started

This post is going to be a heavy one, but it’s something that has been on my heart for a long time. Everyone is so caught up in special diets. I try not to be. I try to just eat what is locally available to me and I’m often questioned on it. Honestly why aren’t people eating more locally grown foods? Locally grown food is fresher, tastes better, and is…
