Welcome to our Blog

I FINALLY took the time to sit down on this dreary last day of Feb. 2010 to make our blog page. It seems we have been "blogging" a long time- sharing our stories with friends around the dinner table, the pickin' circle and by all the digital media we use today.

Many of our friends and family think we are a little nuts for our efforts to "homestead" . While we are far from the complete sustanability that was possible in my Grandma Pennell's time ( she is my muse ), there is a certain amout of pride in collecting our own eggs, raising our own maters and enjoying the sunset around a campfire with dear friends.

In our 6 1/2 years in Haywood County, we have met more like-minded folk who have been inspirations, mentors and most importantly - friends.

While we have failed at many of our efforts- there is satisfaction in knowing that we have tried in some small way to lessen our impact on the environment.
