Thank you for visiting my blog and homestead.

I share baby steps to independence for the downsized homesteader.  I live on a small, suburban, HOA  (Home Owner Association) controlled lot in Castle Rock, Colorado. Follow me on my journey, learning homesteading skills that target a more independent, healthier and sustainable lifestyle.

Fulfilling this goal rekindles an internal energy – a sense of being in control.

It is the same feeling of independence our forefathers experienced throughout their daily lives. It’s about learning to take care of ourselves. The feeling of confidence … knowing you have the skills to do it on your own.

I hope these posts are helpful. I value your feedback and support.

Thank you for sharing and have your best day so far!
