6 Days Of Rain



6 Days of rain Last week, totaling 10 inches ( with more on the way) Kept us snug in our home; Crafting , Canning, Baking ,Reading.. I gave Norah A lesson on the Sewing machine and she was hooked. She made 2 handbags that she was awfully proud of ( and rightfully so)  ;) She also made some fancy head wear for her beloved Ponies.

Im still working on Apples.. and more apples,, After this batch I will have put up somewhere around 140 lbs of apples..

and then Yesterday after 6 days of NO SUN (which can be especially hard when living off grid,, our panels desperately needed sun as did we! ) that big beautiful Ball of Fire made a quick appearance




The sun shining through the window, watching Norah run outside to play  and getting my hands in the dirt a bit to dig some sweet potatoes and do some fall cleanup was much needed before this next batch of rain its because it's going to be a doozie...

Hoping we don't have to leave, as we live in a 100 yr flood plain...
Hoping for the best and preparing for the worst... So ready for this to pass and get some Sunshine in our lives..
For now the crafting,sewing,  baking ,canning and hibernating will continue


  1. Sounds like you got a lot done!! And your little one had a good time!!

    1. Hello! Yes we did. I really have to keep myself busy when the weather is like that, to keep myself from going crazy hehe...

    2. Obama is hiding a secret that has just came out. This is breaking news and effects you.

  2. Hope you don't get too wet with the next deluge of must be a worry living on a flood plain. Jackie x

    1. Thank you . yes, extremely worrisome right now :/
      and living 12 miles of gravel/so removed, we really need to make a quick safe and smart decision as when to leave, if we need too
      Hoping for the best!

  3. We are at the highest point of land for quite an area....we will be dry but we have to be prepared to be cut off in heavy flooding.
    Your daughter is learning how children should, hands on then creating with what she had learning. Great post!
