I'm participating in the "Blizzard Bloghop" this weekend. This is a great way to meet fellow bloggers and introduce yourself to them. So, if you're interested in a one-stop-shop for a variety of blogs, then check out this blog for information on the Blizzard Bloghop!
Hi, I'm Janice. I am wife to Shawn and Momma to Sam, Sarah, and Andrew. Shawn and I have been married for 6-1/2 years. Sam is 4 years old, Sarah is 3, and Andrew is 14 months.
I only recently started this blog last fall. I created it to cover all dimensions of my life as a stay-at-home-mom. So far this blog has focused on:
Homesteading: At the time that I started this blog, we were shopping around for a homestead property. We've now been living on our dream property for about 7 weeks. We now live on 30 acres with an orchard, pond, two springs, garden, and barn/chicken coop.
Housekeeping: We try to live a simple lifestyle and part of that means that I make many of our family's cleaning products and personal care products. I share those non-food recipes that have worked well for me.
Cooking: We are transitioning into a more nourishing, more traditional, whole foods diet. I share the food successes and failures that come about while making this transition.
In the future, I see more blog posts about our first experiences on this homestead...planting our first garden here, our first harvest from our orchard, Shawn hunting on our property, our first batch of chickens this spring. I'm sure there will be many learning experiences to come!
I also see more posts about food-related topics. I'd like to get into culturing dairy, sprouting beans, soaking grains, and fermenting vegetables at some point this year and blog about those experiences.
I think there will be more posts concerning homeschooling. Of course we've been teaching the children since they've been born, but we are about to begin formally homeschooling this next year.
So, basically, this blog is my attempt to help others learn from my mistakes in SAHMville. My hope is that maybe by reading my posts, someone else can save time by bypassing an idea that's been an obvious failure for me and move on to an idea that I've had great success with.
I hope you'll take some time to look around see the overwhelming, adventurous, absolutely wonderful life that is SAHMville!
