I am needing to ground and center a bit right now. I might join you in this journey for a while. Simply to be awake and here and nowhere else. Thank you.

I think that most of us have days where we hear ourselves talking and talking - and not doing a lot of listening. But quietly being with your child while they express their feelings is one of your most powerful... Continue reading

Yippee! Thats great news. Thanks for sharing.
It works with our without the coconut. Rice or just a bit more tapioca should work fine. If you do rice add a bit more than it calls for in coconut as coconut flour is a very thirsty flour. Enjoy!

I've been holding out on you for way too long. Way. Too. Long. Because we've done it over here. We've perfected the crispy grain-free pizza crust. I know. You thought you were destined to eat sloppy grain-free pizza with a... Continue reading

Lunch was finished, the dishes were done. I had sent the kids outside to burn off their copious energy in the snow. I poured myself some tea and settled in to a little undisturbed knitting time. A rare treat. A... Continue reading

We're a little obsessed with Theodore Gray over here. My 12 year old has read the cover off of his Elements book, and nearly so with his copy of Mad Science. We need this book!!! x
Oh, Laura. As a decade-long passionate vegetarian I truly feel your struggle. I wouldnt touch a meal that had even a bit of chicken broth in it. But as for minerals I havent found a vegetarian substitution for this. I currently have an otherwise ovo/lacto veg. friend who just brought in bone broth as her only exception to heal some gut issues. Im sorry I dont have something to offer you. Its the only key solution weve found.
Thanks for letting me know! I edited the post. Ample water to cover - 6 C or so.

In October I shared the first post in my series on natural tooth care, inspired by my family's own struggles with tooth decay. Today I'm sharing the second post, on the importance of eating a tooth-healthy diet. Prepare yourself. It's... Continue reading

Good neighbors and a husband who likes to stay home. Today, however, we only went as far as our backyard - the best sort of trip away.

The kids and I went out for farm chores after breakfast and didn't come back until lunch time. Because the sun was shining (Wisconsin friends - I said the sun was shining), there was nothing on our schedule, and the... Continue reading

This year. Begin with gratitude. Compare yourself to no one. Release judgement, and let go of old stories. Trust your intuition. Laugh, accept yourself, and find what makes you come alive. Listen to your body. Fire your inner critic and... Continue reading

I think I'll let my sharp-humored friend Mary caption the past year for us. When I came to Mary (an Amish farmer and frequent source of farm-wisdom disguised as humor) torn up over the losses of lambs during the bitter... Continue reading

But of course you know that one path is not right and one is not wrong. Just different. There are many days that I (and more often Pete) wonder why we cant keep it together enough to have things picked up. I suppose that we each come with different gifts, different struggles, and yes, even different shame. Love to you, friend.

I'm finding it increasingly ironic that my blog is called "Clean". Because it's not exactly squeaky in my world. It never has been. Some days it's clean over here - everything in its place! It's delightful, but rare. Most days... Continue reading

I just need to say how utterly impressed I am with your woodworking projects of late. I can upcycle the heck out of some old drawers into shelves but I admit to being a little afraid of the miter saw so I haven't tackled much in the woodshop lately. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thank you for your comments and emails throughout this journey. You have shared a lot of yourselves - successes, realizations, and requests for guidance, empathy, and support. Because yes, this is the hardest job ever, this parenting gig. Many of... Continue reading

Just last night a friend called to ask if my kids would be interested in taking pottery lessons with their kids as a holiday gift. I nearly went in to edit my list, it sounded like such a good idea. Clearly you agree, Kara!
Its a shut box or shut-the-box that we found at a yard sale. We love it!
