|The Goleta Homesteader||
I'm more of a "Suburban" homesteader. There are so many people and ideas that inspire me! The first book I ever purchased was back in the early '70's named "The Ten Talents", which I still own. This book was a major influence on my life and I still believe has one of the best recipes around for Whole Wheat Parker Rolls ever!
Loving everything homemade, homegrown, and home raised, who knew this would blossom into a way of living for life! I have been enamored with country living having been raised on a small horse ranch on the Big Island of Hawaii, and continue to carry this lifestyle into my adulthood.
The only life for me is the simple life!
We live in a wonderful area filled with beauty, bounty, potential and amazingly talented individuals.
Open your door and start living!
Use your God given talents, gifts and abilities toward stewardship. Do what you can. Start somewhere, some how. Whether you're an apartment dweller, city slicker, or country bumpkin, it's never too late to jump in and learn! Join the good life in the Good Land! This site will feature articles on a variety of self sustainability thoughts, ideas and every day living. I hope you enjoy! So let's get started! Let the inspiration begin!
"The Soul that refuses to submit to the daily tilling of its inner fields will end up with nothing but thorns and thistles"
How the yard really looks!
Without boring you, what is it I want to show you? Good Question! I mean what makes me different than the next homesteader? Can't answer that! But maybe due to the fact that I do live in a suburb, and not a vast farm in Pennsylvania, I will show you that simple living is obtainable even in the burbs. Hopefully I will inspire you. Whether you buy things from my "general store" or whether you allow me to teach things to you, I hope you find my site different. I want you to see, I'm an average person trying to live my life as simply as I can and use all the talents that I've been given to do so. Maybe with your feedback, I'll learn some things from you too! So please feel free to send your comments to me and tell me your thoughts!
Me - at Mood's Fabric in NYC getting my "freak on"....at least..this is my style of it.....I flipped out in this store! This is just me amongst the "pelts" section. They had every pelt your little heart desires. And of course, I had purses swimming through my mind while there....."hmmm, what can I make next"??
