Starting Over – Again

Good Morning

It has been quite a while since I’ve written – a lot has been happening.


We decided to move back to the area we left almost 10 years ago.  A hard decision to leave some very good friends and church family for sure!

I knew it would get busy but WOW!  We put our house up for sale & it sold immediately.  Then the rush began!

To make a long story short, here we are in the basement of our daughter’s lake house – what we lovingly call our  “half-way house”, trying to starting over.

And trying to stay with our “real food – traditional living” life style.

What a wild ride!

The picture above is the view we see from bed every morning so you can see, we aren’t suffering too bad!.  Of course, the weather changes as you can see from some of the pics below.

All that to say, “I’ll try to get back in the groove real soon but since everything is so different than I am used to, I’ll be trying to find new places to get all my real food.

Everyone is always asking how to get started with real food & traditional living.

Now, I’m starting over myself – come along and see how I do it.

Trust me, it won’t always be logical or perfect, but it should be fun!
