Well, here goes my online diary. I've been writing in a journal for several years now, and thought I'd give it a try online. I've enjoyed so many blogs such as Path to Freedom, Lichenology, and A Year in Bread, and although I can't come close to what these folks do, they have something to aspire to.
Right now things are under construction, so please bear with the mess. I have a digital camera now, and I hope to soon be taking pictures of my accomplishments and failures.
So who the heck am I? I've been trying to figure that out for years! LOL! I'm a stay-at-home mom of two who lives in a pseudo-rural area of western Washington. I enjoy knitting, baking, and gardening our acre. I love reading, too, especially Jane Austen! I'm concerned about peak oil, climate change and sustainablity issues, and am trying to grow as much food for my family as possible.
