Happy New Year!


Happy 2014!

In 2014 we are hoping to:


  • finish our bathroom (install a tub so that we don’t have to shower at the in-laws’ in the winter)
  • build a new front door for the yurt (one with a window that doesn’t let the frost in)
  • build a bed/room for the wee one


  • plant things on-time and stagger certain vegetables (lettuce, carrots) so we can enjoy eating them all summer and don’t have to harvest everything at once
  • join a farmers’ market and sell our produce
  • take a permaculture course


  • stop being such hoarders and learn to live with less
  • become an organized person (develop a semblance of a regular schedule; keep house clean at all times (ha); dazzle husband with array of home-cooked meals)
  • succeed at random challenges (e.g. have nice hair without shampoo; bake gluten-free sourdough bread that actually tastes good; live completely off-grid for one week each season) – we are open to suggestions if you have a crazy idea that you’d like to see come to fruition!

  2. Love it! I love all your goals and totally chuckled at the “clean house at all times” and “dazzle husband with array of home-cooked meals”. You are awesome!

    I can’t wait to continue to read all about your yurt living. 🙂
