Kim! I'm so excited for you. I'd love to hear more. Shoot me a note if you want to share! The kids and I are dreaming of a trip abroad as well so I'd love to pick your brain.

What are the requirements where you live, Audrey? We're blessed to live in Wisconsin where we don't need to file credits. I wonder how you could work within the system where you live and yet reach for what your heart desires. I know there is a balance to be found - though it might take a hefty dose of creativity to make it come together.

That's the first step. The hardest. You've got it in you.

If you could put aside fear, and worry, and everyone else's idea of who you should be what would you become? If you could set down "should" and "can't" and "too late" and pick up hope and dreams and possibility,... Continue reading

(Because four broody hens in one box is always better than one.) It's been ages since I've shared a "cultivating gratitude" post and I realize that I miss it - and need it - so much right now. So here... Continue reading

I am reading it now! Thanks for calling me away from my knitting and back to my book for a few days.

Before I begin, there is something I feel compelled to share. Not to make a big deal out of it, but just to put it out there and get on with it. We'll call it the "whine" to go with... Continue reading

This week - like so many weeks - had it's share of goodness. Sweet still-warm milk in the morning and mist on the hills. Fresh vegetables, fresh flowers, and fresh cool air drifting in through open windows. This week -... Continue reading

Of course you can share. ~ "Rachel Wolf, Clean. www.lusaorganics.typepad.com" seems adequate. :-)
Lovely. Thanks!
Our honeybees are loving my weed-patch. :-)

Can we get real for a minute? It's about my garden. And who knows. Maybe everything else that matters. You see, I went through a major deer-in-headlights phase with my vegetable garden this spring and I think I've come out... Continue reading

Hi Trina, It seems they are redesigning their store so the old link was bad. Here it is: http://0387184.netsolstores.com/search.aspx?find=cinchona

They were so simple! I dont have a tutorial but I bet with a little googling around youd find one. Basically I just used an X-acto knife to cut rectangles a bit larger than the switch plate cover (say 1 bigger on two sides). Then I centered the switch plate on the rectangle, held it down on the paper and cut an X where there were holes. For outlet holes I cut an X and then a few more slices so that there were 6 points or so for each side. Then I smeared the whole thing on the back with mod podge and attached it, tucking in the flaps through the holes and mitering the outside corners. Gosh. This could be a tutorial. Maybe I should write one!
Thanks again, Tree. I figured it out and filed a complaint. All the best, Rachel

I think it's a matter of finding what works for your family. Growing from Waldorf into Unschooling I'm just not super stoked on screens. In this area I'm more Waldorf than Unschooler I suppose. And because I prioritize building and creating and exploring and being outside, screen time has always been a treat. That being said with an almost 12 year old, there is tons of research we do online. They self-limit quite well and have personalities that when I say "enough screen time, let's go to the creek" they don't balk. Sorry I can't be more helpful!
Welcome, Amber! So glad you found your way here.

We got rid of our tv in 2000 and never looked back. When we want to watch something (Netflix, documentary, etc.) we either load a DVD or download right onto a computer. Works great for our family!
Then I bet youll love this, too! http://lusaorganics.typepad.com/clean/2011/09/a-nikki-mcclure-decoupage-suitcases.html
I did make the hooks, from an old Christmas tree a few years ago. Pretty easy and a day hardly passes when I don't notice and appreciate them.

I spet last weekend alone. It was only the second such weekend I've had in almost twelve years, since becoming a mom. Twelve years. Always with someone. I'm crazy about my people which obviously is a good thing considering this... Continue reading
