Homesteading Bucket List

Homesteading Bucket List

Do you have a bucket list? Do you know what a bucket list is? It is defined as ” a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime”. To be honest, until a little while ago, I had never written down my bucket lists. I had just been keeping a running list in my head. I have a few lists separated into a couple categories and today I’m going to share my homesteading…

How to be Prepared for Emergencies around the Homestead part 1

How to be Prepared for Emergencies around the Homestead part 1

After our crazy week last week I was reminded how important it is to prepare for emergencies. Thankfully we had done a lot of preparation in the past including setting aside water, building up a large pantry of non-perishables, having an alternative source to cook on (our woodstove and cast iron pots and pans) and a few alternative light sources (headlamps, candles, and flashlights). We were fine during our multiple power outages, crazy amount of snow and unsafe driving conditions….

Blizzard of 2017 – In Pictures

Blizzard of 2017 – In Pictures

Whew! What a week! Last week we were hit by a couple of good storms which culminated in our receiving heavy snowfall warnings for a few of the days, one true snow day for our kids’ schools, and another partial snow day because the buses ended up not running at all. Not that my kids minded having a 2 day school week! (Friday was a pro-d day anyways). I am so glad that being prepared for emergencies was a project…

Exploring Qualicum Beach and Parksville ~ In Photos

Exploring Qualicum Beach and Parksville ~ In Photos

Qualicum Beach and Parksville are two small cities located on the east coast of beautiful Vancouver Island. Since the two are only about a 5 to 10-minute drive apart, they get lumped together to explore. Our family has been there twice and both times really enjoyed our time there. There is so much to explore! Oh and just to warn you this post is very picture heavy 😉 Fun fact about Qualicum Beach: The S.S. Minnow of Gilligan’s Island fame (kids,…

The Most Delicious Pumpkin Bread

The Most Delicious Pumpkin Bread

I made this pumpkin bread yesterday, and it is almost gone! I pulled this recipe straight from grandma’s recipe box and I have to tell you, it is so moist and delicious. It is super easy to make too! Yesterday I made it with canned pumpkin but I have made it before, with fresh roasted pumpkin, and that makes it even better. Mmmmm who doesn’t love a warm slice (or two!) of pumpkin bread with a hot cup of tea…

Life around the Homestead: A Winter Homestead Tour

Life around the Homestead: A Winter Homestead Tour

Life around our little homestead has been busy, to say the least! I had planned to share this updated video tour of our homestead awhile ago, but then Christmas and New Years chaos ensued, so the sharing of this tour just didn’t happen until now.
