Life on Green Being Farm

Here's a little blog about a family living on 2-acres of love. There be art here. There be joy here. There be the artisanship of The Mister here. From time to time you will find the buzz of the kiddos and maybe...hear the hum of our hearts.

Words to live by

"The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment."
- Dorothy Nevill

Today is Simplicity Day (Thoreau's birthday). I'm making a bit of a post over at Goin' Granola.

Hope all goes well for you today!

The Earth Mother Speaks . . .

Today these sweeties were talking to me about life. They let me take some pictures of them as they were picking around the back yard.

I wish that the neighbor hadn't started shooting guns...

The ladies walked over to another place so they were safe from the guns.

Life around here has gone back to normal - like back to crunchiness. ;)

Gotta run - lots of love!

You scored as White Lighter. You are a White Lighter! You seek the dawning of the New Age and the raising of the consciousness of mankind (which of course happens in 2012, and all in one day). You seek only to do good, and are determined to cut out that pesky dark side once and for all. You know your own role in the coming Earth Changes is important, and you must let all know so they know whom to turn to at that crucial moment!

Goin' Granola

Hidy-ho blogger neighbors!

I've missed y'all so much. Been working hard and getting things done.

Got a new business, new writing ventures and am enjoying being a momma.

Hope all is well with each of you.

Even if Google is the second coming of the Gov't spy game...I love it. Still don't have a gMail account, but that's okay. :) I've loaded some of my fave feeds to load on my Google page.

For example, this is what made me smile today.
pleonasm: the use of more words than are necessary to express an idea.

At heart...I am a pleonasmist. I enjoy superflous word usage. ;)

My horoscope tells me to:
You are motivated to create something tangible and can get lost in the logistics and planning. Still, it's advisable to maintain a connection with the realm of fantasy. Remember your dreams but don't get mixed up over what is real.

Today the girls and I might try our hand at making invisible ink.


Who says the interwebs is no good?

It is Spring!

Today I have the itch (again) to homestead our little two acres. I know what can be done on such a small piece of land (and still have room for playing and such). All I need is a few chickens, on Jersey cow and a small horse for the girls. It wouldn't take much work to get it homestead ready...

Then there is the part of me that likes the ease that modern culture gives us. We can get used to sedentary living pretty easily. We don't have to grow our own food anymore to survive - we just drive our car to the store and pick it up from the aisles.


The Boy is growing by leaps and bounds. It is truly amazing how much they grow in the first year. The things they can do already - the life they set out to live starts...

I've started a group/org/company thing called MamasInNeed. I'll post more about it here over the next few weeks. In fact, I'll post more often. :)

Be well. Happy Spring!

House Fire

Just droppin' in.

Last week we had a small house fire. All are okay - house is okay. Loads of damage, but it can be repaired.

Some days I feel like Job...

Other days I am very thankful for this blessing...

Either way, I'm ready for a vacation ;)
