A Year In Reflection : August 2013


Rhetoric, Built-in Book shelf, Juice fast and raw food cleanse that changed everything, and The accidental Co-Op.

Wow was this month jam packed. We again attended a wonder-filled worship-full evening of poetry, prose and exhortation at Rhetoric, and await in great anticipation the 2014 addition. For more information and access to videos of last years poetry go to :

We created one of what will be two custom built-in book shelves YAY! I absolutely love knowing I made the molding that adorns the sides, and the storage we provided to our little home. It awaits it’s finishing paint and crown molding which we decided to add. but other than that. Yep it’s done!


There were things in my body that were out of order, which led me to take charge of my own health and healing. So I decided to begin my healing by going on a fast. What was supposed to be a 7 day all juice cleansing fast, turned into something more. You can read all about what I did in this blog post Here.


Well that fast turned into The Accidental Co-Op. How is that possible? Well while I was juicing ALL  of my “meals” I found the cost to be, um, a bit expensive for the amount of everything I needed to truly be successful. In that I was committed, I knew I needed an alternate food source, and our summer garden was coming to an end and we needed quantity. So we decided to purchase our food in bulk. To make a long story short people began asking what we were up to, recognizing a change in my life, weight, energy, etc.… and wanted to know where we were getting all our food. One thing lead to another, conversations happened, and BAM! Accidental Co-Op.



If you are interested in a co-op, and there are many to choose from may I suggest visiting

Type in your zip code and it will give you a host of options for great locally harvested organic food.

I love doing year in review posts. They help me see and note the things I found interesting and important in life. What were you up to last year?

A Year In Reflection : September 2013


This year for our anniversary, we decided to stay home and work on a home improvement project. The goal was to take a week and complete the entire outdoor gathering place/gazebo/room, and then to party hardy after it was done. So we invited family and friends to come and fellowship/help/cheer us on. We expected it to be fun, and truly it was. We did not expect record breaking temperatures every single day of the week!


Our “helpers” mostly played in the water, and sat in the shade. And really who could blame them. It was upwards of 115 degrees, and already 95 early in the mornings!



So what I estimated would take about 4 days (um yeah I kind of underestimate sometimes) is now taking months! Honestly though, we are so very humbled that all of you came out from near and far, to participate with us, and help us out of the goodness in your hearts, or maybe curiosity to just see what “they” are up to now. Thank you. We had a blast fellowshipping and dancing in the mud.


We do not have images of everyone who came out (shame on us) as we were trying so hard to do as much as we could before the heat overwhelmed us or the night descended, but we do remember every moment, the borrowed truck, the efficient cob stirring, the loading and unloading of rocks and sand, the digging of trenches, the free granite and wood and barrel and stones and bricks. Just remembering has our hearts full.


Ok so it is still not finished BUT we will resume building as soon as Spring hits, and we exit the record breaking frostiness that is this Winter. From our hearts we say again to everyone who cared enough to lend a hand, a foot, and travel the dirt road to assist us. You ROCK!

AND Our Rocket Mass Heater WORKS!
