… And I haven’t even had my coffee yet.

I really should remedy the no coffee situation before writing anything.

But, an introduction is what I have in mind for this moment.

I am a 30 year old, cat owning, chicken keeping, sewing, gardening, canning, foraging, stay at home mama and devoted wife. My husband and I have been trying to lead a self sufficient lifestyle with a fair amount of success. We strive to get better. We don’t always reach that goal. We do manage to laugh at, and learn from, most of our mistakes.

This blog, is about our journey to that self sufficiency. It will cover everything from our current project (blueberry raking and processing) to our garden harvest. From our experiences as first time parents, to our adventures taking care of our chickens… It might seem like it lacks focus, but the focus is life. In all it’s messy, unfocused glory.

So, it’s time for that cup of coffee….

Next time- our trip to go get blueberries and how we clean them, with pictures.
