Decluttering – Keep Or Let Go!


decluttering keep or let go



Decluttering ~Do I keep it or let it go? This is the very basic question you will find yourself asking as you are decluttering your world. Sometimes the answer comes quickly, and other times you will ponder it for a while. As I have been decluttering I realized that there are underlying questions to ask in order to find the answer to the original keep or let go question.

Remember the Turkish Delights from the Narnia series? Well, they just can’t stand up against our just tapped homemade Maple syrup. It drips off my fork of freshly buttered pancakes, and bursts with sweet, smokey, maple deliciousness. MMMMM good! Come along and I will give you a glimpse of how we make it….the traditional way….including all but the horses.


Bringing Home The Honey Bees!

Honey Bees

It’s official we are beekeepers! Our first nuc of honey bees are coming home today! After much research on the net, reading books, and completing our 8 week class on how to raise  honey bees taught by a professional bee keeper it is time to bring them home. During our last class in early spring we were scheduled to pick up our first nuc. A nuc is a small box that holds five frames, with about 20,000 young bees, and their queen. We packed the car with our bee suits and made sure the trunk was empty as that is where we would place the bees to bring them home. After closing the trunk we climbed in the car and began our 1 hour jaunt to the beekeepers bee yard. If you are interested in being a beekeeper or just love to read about bees come along with us to pick up our bees.


Debt Mindset Changing

Debt Mindset  Changing?

When debt mindset changing is not your strong point…..let yourself off the hook.  It’s okay if you chose not to get out of debt. Keep in mind if you chose not to get out of debt you will be in the same position or worse in the future then you are now.


Closet Makeover – Mix Creativity With Logic

As I begin to ponder last year’s closet makeover I am looking out my window and seeing  that it is a great winter day here. The sky is blue and the ground is snowy white. It is a winter coat, hat, gloves, boots, and sled toting kinda day. Days like today remind me of the simplicity, and beauty of nature. She has a natural order spring, summer, fall and winter. As we continue to move forward into a simple, uncluttered life I am using nature for inspiration. The seasons are beautiful, creative and full of logic. The closet makeover will be creative and logical.
