“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

I think I must be getting soft… When we bought our pair of turkeys this spring, we intended to have them for Thanksgiving dinner. However, after our chicken massacre last week, only one of the pair survived, and the lone survivor has suddenly become very attached to us. It follows me around the yard like a dog, and when the Prairie Kids left the front door open on Saturday, it invited itself right in, and was pleased-as-punch to be hanging out in the living room… I do believe it has earned a pardon. So, I suppose I’ll be buying a free-range turkey from the local health food store this year… Yeah, I’m definitely getting soft. ;)

I'm pretty sure the dog was rolling her eyes...

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Hmmm… so I just realized that I’m posting this Barn Hop about 10 hours later than I normally do… We got back from the annual doTERRA essential oil convention last night, and I am still feeling a little bit fried. ;) It was a marvelous week, but my brain is having a little trouble getting back into the homesteading routine, so thanks for your patience!

And hey– I wanted to let you know about a pretty awesome educational opportunity that’s coming up. The Self Reliance Summit promises to be a treasure-trove of information right up a homesteader’s alley. You can register here for FREE. There will be two presentations available for you to listen to each day (and yes, it’s FREE!). Here a few topics that’ll be covered:

• When Disaster Strikes: What You Need to Know, Do, and Have on Hand
• Return to Your Roots: How Anyone Can Embrace the Homesteading Lifestyle
• Emergency Home Power. More Electricity than you need in a Disaster
• What most people don’t know about self-reliant living and preparedness

• Creating Sustainable Food Forests, Building Community, and Staying Warm
• Emergency Herbal Medicine Storage

Homestead Barn Hop #176

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

It’s been… a bizarre week. Our mild, yet pleasant, summer gave us an early dose of winter when we were blanketed with an inch or two of snow on Thursday night. I ended up having to intervene for my poor tomato plants and covered some of them with quilts while harvesting the others early. (I may or may not have been grumbling a bit while I harvested…) We are supposed to get back up into the 80s this week, but that’s Wyoming for ya!

To top it all off, I nearly accidentally grabbed a rattlesnake while harvesting the ‘maters on that chilly afternoon. It was curled up trying to keep warm, and I didn’t see it until it was way too close for comfort. Thankfully it was too cold to pose much of a threat!

And, don’t forget this is the LAST DAY to grab your copy of the Ultimate Healthy Living bundle. If you haven’t grabbed yours yet, promise me that you’ll at least take a look to see if it’d be a fit for you? It’s such a spectacular deal that only comes around once a year, I’d hate for anyone to miss out if they want it!

yespleaseYou can get all the details and the full list of books, classes, and bonuses included HERE. There’s a 100% money back guarantee, so even if you are unsure, there’s nothing to lose!

Onto the Barn Hop!

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

I’m a little shocked at how quickly summer turned into fall this year… I have rather mixed feelings on the topic too. Don’t get me wrong, I am crazily excited for chai tea and sweaters and cozy days inside, but I also know our Wyoming winters are very, very long, so I don’t want to wish away the carefree, barefoot summer activities too quickly!

And hey– I have a spiffy little opportunity for you today. As many of you know, I’m a big fan of eBook bundles–and I just-so-happen to know there is a pretty spectacular one in the works. And, I also know of a way for you to get it for FREE. Crazy, huh? All you have to do is go here and input your email address. You’ll then get information on the next step sent to your inbox (no purchase required). Basically it just boils down to encouraging 10 other friends to do the same, then you get the bundle for free. Pretty nifty, huh? (And it’s 100% spam-free. Promise.)
