I was researching soap-making today and ran across this really neat website. Here is a little appetizer:I want to expound a bit on that last statement. How had they caused confusion? Whenever we hold on to things in our lives that have no purpose and no usefulness, they begin to take up the space, time and emotional energy that really are needed for the other things – the necessary things. Once I had removed those unnecessary items from the box there was plenty of room for everything else including the lid!!! But to be completely honest, once I had put everything where it needed to be, we actually didn’t even need the box anymore.
The site has lots of information about farm-living. They are almost completely self-sustaining and that is their goal. When his daughters turn 16, he gives them each a hope chest that he has built and personalized in some way. I thought that was really sweet.
Anyway, if you feel like looking at a new site but along the same lines as the things we discuss here...modest dress,recipes, how to make a plain apron...just go to Shepherd's Hill. Enjoy!
I came back to edit this this morning. I realized as I read over it that we don't actually discuss these things here. LOL They're things that I read about a lot and have discussions going on about in my head all day. There is nothing about embroidery or cross-stitch on that site or even crochet or knitting...at least I haven't found it yet. I was thinking about that as I was nodding off last night. Perhaps I didn't look hard enough. I'm sure it won't be too much of a burden for me to research their site a bit more. :)
