Those of you following me around on social media for a while probably know my fondness of nature. It follows quite naturally that I like to grow things! So I’ve started a little side project that can be found on Etsy here: Little Island Seed Co. on Etsy and of course it’s own website asContinue reading “A new adventure: Little Island Seed Co.”
As part of InboxZero day (see my previous post), I often find myself clicking through emails of advertisers and other people I’ve communicated with. I’d like to share this gem with you all, enjoy!
It’s funny how I find myself signed up for email after email, and, on average once a year unsubscribe from everywhere to get to Inbox Zero… only to start all over again and repeat the process next year. Credit to Merlin Mann.
Nearly three weeks ago I posted some musings on my Lupin-project, where I try to spread Lupins of various wild harvested types – voluntarily – in certain managed patches and plots on the land here. I have been doing extensive landscaping the past 2 months (which will be the subject of other posts) and IContinue reading “Lupin project – update”

Way back when I lived in the littlest house I made this cleaning vinegar but a) I didntContinue reading “Home-made orange cleaner”

I’m in Australia at the moment exploring the sunnyContinue reading “Jellyfish!”

Before I dig in, I also wanted to share an older Jason Fieber article, I meant to add that in a while ago and it is appropriate here;Continue reading “2 months after Day 1: Barista-Fi/RE’d .”
Some thoughts today: Very recently I was unexpectedly offered employment with the Government of Canada. I was in the boonies, middle of nowhere – Costa Rica at the time and had a rickety phone connection that got cut off by a power failure. It took about an hour of frantic waiting to accept the job,Continue reading “FIRE.”
Back in October I ended up buying an industrial sized drum of 35% peroxide and a 25kg bag of Lye from a guy off Kijiji. He was using it for woodworking (so he says, but who knows, maybe he was making drugs :-o) Anyway, so I ended up paying something like $35 bucks or somethingContinue reading “DIY – Adventures in soap making!”
