A long break

One of the things about blogging (at least for me) is it needs to be regular. If you take a long break it is hard to get back into the habit. I've let this blog rest (actually, it was me who needed the rest...) for more than a month. Coming back I felt like I needed a big "something" to say. Don't have any right now. But I miss the conversation, the record, the connection with a wider world that blogging brought. So, I'm back.

I've kept up a presence on NDiN. It's been pretty pathetic too, but the past two weeks have been a start of a new story. You can get caught up here and here (week 2). We got a bit of a wake-up call on 12/21. Discovered just how dependant we were on outside income and how little control we had over that income. So we have launched a year long project to explore (and implement) ways of being less dependant on one source of support. The first bit is the grocery store. Being a diverse micro-farm we felt we were pretty independent in that area. Wrong! We didn't make it a week. We will be posting more here and on NDiN about that and other bits of our bid for independence. Should be an interesting year.

Well, it has been a very busy time of year for families. Maybe not as busy for you as Farmer's Mkt days, but still... I know I have hardly written a thing between holidays and viruses (not the computer kind).
