"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15


Winter 2016: a Time of Tending Homefires

Winter 2016

We're in our cold winter season; tending fires to keep warm, making candles for light and fun, and gathering in extra supplies to supplement our provisions.  Winter can be a great time for indoor projects, studying, reading, and planning for Spring gardening.


My New Season

 My home has changed from the little studio with the tiny kitchenette - I've married and moved!
We have a wonderful place, which comes with a lot of responsibilities and work. But oh how I love living here with my husband, keeping our home, and planning for our future together! How blessed we are!

 We've been married for a few months now, and we've had a lot going on. We've built shelving in our shed and moved all my things, we keep adding wood to the woodshed, have been working out the budget and figuring out housework schedules & planning our daily routine. I enjoy helping my husband with his work when I can.

 Most fun of all? He's encouraging me to restart my online course at Vintage Remedies. So I'm preparing to start up my herbal studies again, as soon as we have a few more plans in place for the home - and I can hardly wait!  I'm so excited to add to my herbal knowledge and be better preparing to help my family be healthy and well!

Leave me a comment - what are you working on and studying this Winter?
