I moved to Powell River just over a year ago, where did the time go? This simple life of mine is quite busy and time seems to fly. What fun I've had. I started a blog and met some wonderful people. I started an online craft business, not very successful but a creative outlet all the same. I've grown a good amount of veggies and for the first time enough to process and freeze. I've reduced my food bill by half. I've reduced my refuse to one black garbage bag every two weeks. I make my own laundry soap. I no longer use shampoo and I just started cleaning with bicarb soda and vinegar. I hang dry 90% of my laundry and will hopefully sew most of my clothes...
My to do/learn list??? Figure out why my yogurt is not working, knit socks, make soap from scratch, dig an additional veggie garden for 2010, dig an additional flower bed for 2010. Learn to make my own butter using a local milk supply (two looong blocks away), learn to make cheese (but only after I figure out yogurt). Get chickens..
I'm sure there is more..stay tuned.
