Nifty Item!

  I thought I’d post occasionally about items that I find helpful in either an off-grid or small space setting. No, I don’t receive any monies for mentioning these products!

  Here is a really nifty set of three stack-able cooling racks. They are stainless steel, which I always prefer, quite stable while stacked 3-high and loaded with chocolate chip cookies, and the feet fold for small space storage in their box. The fact that they stack gives you 3 times the amount of cooling space in the same small footprint on the counter! In the photo you can see why space is such an issue for me right now. There you can see all but the stove of my entire kitchen. Itty bitty, eh! Not to mention not much storage space either. This cooling rack set suits us wonderfully!

Like No Other Spring

  The spring of 2012 promises to be one the likes of which we’ve never experienced. We have baby bunnies, chicks on the way, calves due (literally any day!), a soon-to-be milk cow, and a litter of puppies. We are over the moon with excitement! And then, as soon as the ground is workable we plot/plant the vegetable/herb garden, build a root cellar, and start construction on the cabin. There are those butterflies in my stomach again! Until then, we will be quite busy with baby animals.    ;)
