The Beauty In Taking Time For Yourself
https://youtu.be/boUi5QJW9jA 
It's quite easy to get lost in the hectic world we live in. It's easy to fall into the routine of go go go without remembering to take some time for yourself. 

I know I have been guilty of this lately. I had to remind myself I needed to slow down, to make time for those around me, to take time to decompress for me. If you don't take time for yourself, you certainly won't have the time or energy to care for those around you.

I took my family hiking this weekend, made a picnic basket, found a bed of smooth boulders alongside the river where we could enjoy the art of just being. We talked, ate and sat there quietly as well to listen to the stream flow, caressing algae and tickling fishes bellies as we watched. A friendly king snake even stopped by to see what we were doing but left as quickly as it came.  Sometimes it's better to let nature be specially if you are a visitor in t

Preparing for Job Loss
As the closure of my husband's workplace looms I've been assessing how our preparations have been going incase we end up with a long period of joblessness. Luckily we've had a couple of years warning that this was coming up, so we've had time and knew exactly what we were preparing for.

![20170519_105841.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmarb8w4MMugoNB4yWPV9qNSZwyswRogjj1C3SrqeaVcWN/20170519_105841.jpg)

My first priority has been keeping a roof over our heads. Knowing what I know now, I would probably never have chosen to go the route of a mortgage, but what's done is done and I am at least grateful that we chose never to stretch ourselves to our top limit with borrowing and that we always strove to pay as much extra off as we could. Hopefully this will give us some leeway if we do have to negotiate any lower payments with the bank. However, before we reach that point I have other preparations put in  place so we can hopefully keep making those payments.

We will be able to claim unemployment benefits, so in

Share the harvest!
Going to see some family today. Here's what I'll be bringing them. Something from today's harvest I offer them as a gift.

<p>Tired after a busy day, in fact it has been a busy two weeks. We now have a total of 24 pints of fresh dried fig leaves for tea, and more will be coming. The lavender just got another cutting and was dried. We have 20 pints of lavender/jasmine tea for the year. Basil, thyme, rosemary, and oregano spice jars have been filled for winter. Spinach and cilantro are dried and gone for the year, as both have bolted. Soon we will be gathering seed. We also finished off the last of the berries this week and are putting these vines to bed.&nbsp;</p>

Cottage activated guardians
As usual I am posting things as they are in real life -- I wanted to clean up the spaces round these, yet, this is how it is and how I live with them and love them. 

I call these *activated as I "feed" them (that is for another post). I believe inanimate objects can, through projected intent take on a certain life as all things are made of energy and energy can be manipulated.  

These are some of my cottage guardians close to the house. I do have lots of other *warding things hanging in the trees and lurking round (again, for another post).

![G1.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmPVF8U1rr62MAiW5JWGNZePSvxRELEdLFbo6p1L1GEvQS/G1.JPG)

Above is a 4' high clay, with removable head, Chinese warrior as replicated from the very famous ancient examples.  I love him and often give him incense sticks to hold as he welcomes people when they come up to the porte-cochère. Because he is an exact replica his head is removable and slightly posable, I use this access to his interior to *feed him.

Backyard Oasis Project - Part 1 - Building Our Koi Pond
About a year ago I made the decision to build out our backyard area into a functional relaxation and entertainment space, we called it the *Backyard Oasis Project*. 

Now we don't have a lot of space in the back, roughly 9ft x 25ft with an A/C unit poorly positioned near the middle. The space was primarily used to grow food in container gardens, but the growing season was limited to 7 months due to the shadow cast down by the second story of our Townhouse during the "winter" months.  As I moved into Hydroponics a few years back, I slowly reduced how much food was grown in back yard. The time had come to re-purpose the space.

I created a rough sketch of what I wanted to build and how I wanted to layout the space. When I asked my wife and son for input on what they would like to have, a fish pond was high on the list. With that, I de

Daily Thoughts - 20 Aug 17 - Homesteading Today...
Its a beautiful evening here in New Brunswick, Canada. :D The sun is shining and heating up the whole back side of my house.

Look who came to say hello...Candy is such a sweet gal and Ferdinand is a handsome lad...and hopefully they make a beautiful calf. :D
![20170818_112023.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmPdfrKqhvbiTh58bQiPV3snmA3baYwbFSiib87mUJ9ZVs/20170818_112023.jpg)
If Candy and Ferdinand don't make a calf, maybe Belle and Ferdinand will make one. :D
![20170724_145511.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmbBxEhpJ4XaX1rgUwU84LWEpW3bpaX3WG1utHKSh724xv/20170724_145511.jpg)
I think a brown spotted calf would be adorable. :D

What do you think? Which pairing would make the best looking calf?

Fermented Green Beans and Blueberry Vinegar!

![DSCN3555.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmPgwUR6MHRhtCTA8EVUGxM443rPPLQS3YRoRRiEmKTXCZ/DSCN3555.JPG)

Started digging into my first batch of spicy, fermented homegrown green beans and green onions.  YUM!  Next time I will add dill for a fermented "Dilly Bean".  

![DSCN3556.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmcjsTSonNbbKkQDgFtnTL4L7H4NxvWidJXZbdFU9o7NBN/DSCN3556.JPG)

Filtered out my blueberry vinegar that I tried making from frozen homegrown berries I put up a couple of years ago and it turned out perfect!

![IMG_2296.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmcCTHAYbvmGk4oscsyaLrwTyzp6tJV2z5KyjELU4v1CQH/IMG_2296.JPG)

I just love how my garden looks this time of year! August is always the best for color!

Happy Sunday all! ~Heidi

My Not So Peaceful Saturday

My day to sleep in. I am usually up at 4 am during the week and work until 8 or 9 pm. So Saturdays and Sundays are my days to rest and basically do what I want when I want. Today is no different. I want to rest. 

At 6:30 am I hear a dreadful pounding on my gate. More like a very large heavy door made of one-inch slabs of natural varnished Guanacaste with a decorative iron work covering the front. I have no door bell, only a sign that says my office hours are Monday to Friday 8 am to 4 pm. Otherwise, I would have solicitors and peddlers at my door at all times.

My son calls me and says Union Fenosa, our local energy people are at the gate. They want to know if they can come in and β€œtrim” my trees! Over my cold dead body. I have seen these machete-wielding guys in action. No way! They leave the main trunk and hack off the branches leaving uneven raw stumps where

Apology For My Absence
![241857-I-Am-So-Tired-My-Tired-Is-Tired.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYHjUvDn56wrQq8ate3t1ZLUW2fVBJRL8iLMAB4nyG6mq/241857-I-Am-So-Tired-My-Tired-Is-Tired.jpg)

I am sorry for my absence the past few days. I am a mechanic for my local school system and with the start of the new school year comes long hours of work. I had 62hrs in as of Friday for one 5 day work week and they were hard hours.

![IMG9513061.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmf5aUxxT51zTdiJn7MADs9cjBFY7SHTq7KZQRQ3nhXpxb/IMG9513061.jpg)

The good news is that our new buses are nearly ready. Hopefully when the antique buses are gone, things will get easier. Hope all of you are enjoying a fine weekend!

Daily Thoughts - 19 Aug 17 - Homesteading Today...

So today was a rainy, damp, blah looking day....which should have given me an indication of how it was going to go...

The cattle ignored me while I was doing the chores and chasing a rooster back into the chicken yard...crazy rooster thought it should hang out with the cattle...I worried it would get stepped on and so the great rooster catching contest of 2017 began...me trying to outmaneuver the rooster and the rooster proving to me that he can turn and run in the opposite direction so much faster than I can.
After catching him and getting him back into the yard I went down to make sure the cattle had water and while I was doing that Belle decided to come over and get a drink. :D

Sunflowers In Honor of My Gramma And The Newest Herb Addition: Mint
<center>My sunflowers have started to open... FINALLY!</center>
_Dwarf Sunflower_![20170819_093504.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmPcDYjUm38JHBpkbRFdyWKeXpPjeiSC8MXEpVYQyHWxH5/20170819_093504.jpg)![20170819_093507.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmPeJuidUzFTZfJFfNgAovnKJkF9LmdAAoJZNwX5FxKWFC/20170819_093507.jpg)

Keep in mind, I planted these in late, the first of June. And I have been watching every day for them to start opening up and this morning, they FINALLY DID! 
I know, I know, kind of silly to get so excited about them starting to bloom and open up, but I am just _GIDDY_ with excitement! So much, that I texted a picture to my mom and husband. _(It takes so little to excite me and make me happy)_
My maternal grandmother LOVED sunflowers. In 1986, she had a massive stroke that left her paralyzed on one side and she would always tell me in her own post-stroke language, "that if you planted the sunflowers when the kids got out of school, they would be open and beautiful for the kids when they went back

2nd generation of interplanting THIS SEASON
First up climbed the snow peas and behind them the radishes - some of which I let go to seed.  Then as the snow peas died back - up came the cucumbers I planted with another crop of radishes.  Those radishes were harvested to lactoferment them and I found out they are absolutely delicious and healthy. Now it's time for that fall crop of radishes behind the cucumbers again - after a little compost is added. I'm using the seeds from the first crop of radishes and hoping for another great harvest as the summer comes to a close this year and some lactofermented radishes for the winter months.

UNCONVENTIONAL HOMESTEADING : The best reasons why you should start being self sufficient. PT2
<html>
<p><br>
<center> https://i.imgur.com/XvbI6e1.jpg&nbsp;</p></center>
<h3>Is it crazy to live a self-sufficient life?</h3>
<p>I have always thought of a life, free from debt... free from the rat race. Being self-sufficient is not much of a choice for me, I have to be. I am disabled and I need to stay close to home to care for my son with food allergies. Sure I could live off of cheap microwave dinners the rest of our lives. But that's not the life I want for ourselves. What is your reason? &nbsp;</p>
<h3>In times of economic hardships...</h3>
<p>The <strong>Great Depression</strong> was a trying time in America. Many begged, borrowed, and stole whatever they could to try to get by. Resourcefulness and thrift were necessary. &nbsp;The people who weren't impacted by the economic depression as much were those who already grew their own food crops and raised livestock.<br>
</p>
<p>In times of <strong>war</strong> &nbsp;when supply chains may be cut off, it is important to have a supply of food available. I b

UNCONVENTIONAL HOMESTEADING : Wanting to homestead in your backyard? PT1
<h1>Want to homestead in your backyard?</h1>
<center>http://i.imgur.com/MurZjLY.jpg</center>
Hey Guys! If you are like me and want to homestead but own a house in a suburban area it may feel like your dreams are slowly being suffocated. I'm currently waiting for our home to be ready to move into. Even after it's done we will still be in town. I still plan on starting a small homestead - and you can too! Here are a few tips to make it happen, and some ideas to get you started.
<center>http://i.imgur.com/3fISliS.jpg</center>
<p><h2>Where do you live?</h2> Are you in an upscale neighborhood with a HOA? Are you in the city? A typical small town? These questions are a good place to start. Look around the neighborhood and see what you can find. Do you have neighbors who keep chickens? Bees? A goat or two?<h3>HOAs and apartments</h3> Home owners associations are going to be very tricky to get around - so are apartments. I'm going to be honest I probably won't be able to help you much here. I've heard it can be done
