We're not homesteders as such, but we do live a simple life that is in touch with the cycle of work and rest is evident throughout nature. Our approach to living, based largely on the reduction of wants and a mostly non-monetary return from our organic horticulture, bee keeping and other sorts of labor. Were living the good life along the Mississippi river valley in north eastern Iowa.

What Ya Been Up To?
So what have we been up to?
Well you know that window trim that I've thought about fixing for the last 18 years.
Not a big job and I had the red paint out to do some touch ups here and there.
The window trim is done.
We've gotten a little time in on the bikes.
Maxine and Ace are always ready for a run back to the barn.
Susie and I took the bikes down to Sabula to tool around the Island. We hit a beautiful day and had a blast!
We spotted a Uncle Pie sticker in the window of one of the bars.
This morning we were up in Milwaukee visiting Kendo.
We got up early to make a run down to the lake shore and worked on our cartwheel skills.
Susie's form was a little better than mine
We gathered up some rounded wave tumbled stones and a few nice pieces of sea glass.
