Life has gotten in the way a bit and I apologize to my readers. With summer coming on I'll hopefully have more time to dedicate to writing this blog.
In the mean time our friend Miss Minimalist has much exciting news on her blog http://www.missminimalist.com/ I can't wait to see how her new minimalist philosophy develops!

My fingernails are stained
Red clay earth moist and cool
Today is the Spring Equinox. This is a time of renewal and rebirth. Take the time to get dirty today-whether in the garden, the garage, or sweeping the corners of your mind and soul.
This year we will be attempting to homestead again. Last year was jointly successful and daunting. The learning curve was steeper than we expected. Give us credit, though. I grew up in the land of concrete and my husband grew up on the beach. Farming is not exactly in our genes. There will be tomatoes, peppers, and maybe a couple of root veggies. Pictures to follow once the boxes are repaired and ready :)

For me socialization is important. I'm a very social animal and I get kind of nutty if allowed to be on my own too long. As such plotting out my social engagements while including enough family time is the planned activity of the weekend.
We have cut out tv and that has freed up time for me to do more studying and socializing during the week. That allows weekends to be used for family outings, date nights, and relaxed hanging out at home.
What are some things you would like to make time for? What can you cut to free up that time?
