Wow, I've Been Gone a LONG Time!

Things have been crazy recently. Since the beginning of October, to be exact. That's when my dad died (heart attack). Meanwhile, my mother and stepfather's marriage is going down the drain and he blames me. And now we're moving, but to who knows my posts will probably be very sporadic for awhile until things settle down again.

On a brighter note, I'm ordering some books off of Amazon.

One is "Your Green Home: A Guide to Planning a Healthy, Environmentally Friendly New Home" by Alex Wilson because someday I want to build my own house (whether I actually build it or hire a contractor or some combination of the two...) and I want it to be healthy and made of natural stuff and as chemical free as possible.

I'm also ordering "Rural Renaissance: Renewing the Quest for the Good Life" by John Ivanko. I really like reading about how other people do this homesteading which is one reason I do the blogging thing. Partly because I like to offer my opinion on everything and also because I want to hear how other people do it.

I already have "Storey's Basic Country Skills," "The Encyclopedia of Country Living" by Carla Emery, "The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live It" by John Seymour, and "Country Wisdom and Know-How: Everything You Need to Know to Live Off the Land."

Anywayz, so I'm excited to get lovely new books :)

P.S. I put a Christmas music player at the bottom of the page.
