Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Easter Weekend...

39 degrees oustide - 12:21 pm - raining...

Easter Weekend…what a whirlwind.  It was spent jumping from one house to another as we visited with family and friends, ate good food and watched as the kids laughed and ran around while they hunted for tons of brightly colored Easter Eggs.

The highlight of the weekend, which our kids cannot stop talking about, came in a brown cardboard box.  The chicken coop hasn’t been built yet but the chicks are here!  Aunt Gail got our kids baby chicks for Easter and they are tiny fluffy balls of cuteness.  We now have four baby Plymouth Rock Chickens and will be picking up the rest of the baby chicks (a few more different breeds) later this week when they come in.  In the meantime, Tony and I will be keeping our fingers crossed that all the baby chicks turnout to be hens!
