But, I have to admit...I am a NPR addict. So, Morning Edition is turned on at 6 am. It is the usual mayhem this morning: suicide bombings in Turkey and Iraq, banks failing, the price of gasoline drops below 4.00. These are interesting times. I never thought I would be living through such times?
I sit at the computer this morning writing this post. My first of many I hope. What is this exercise for anyway...blogging? Well, first, I hope for it to be a chronicle of our life here on our homestead. We are working hard on our small patch of earth. Second, I hope for this blog to be a record of our understanding of Peak Oil/climate change and what we are doing to adapt to these changing times. Third, I hope to share the flotsam of life: knitting projects, toddler witticisms, teenager accomplishments, recipes, local economy and general musings.
Hubby rises with a declaration," I am awake! Thanks for letting me sleep in."
I must consider the to do list today:
Finish shelling peas and put them in the freezer
Pick raspberries from our property and freeze them.
Plant spinach for fall harvest.
Harvest basil and make pesto.
Empty dehydrator of kale and dill.
Wait for delivery of materials for building barn
Well, onward and upward....
