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.

The Little Pink Ballerina…

60 degrees outside - 11:47 am - patches of blue sky and sun shine...

the little pink ballerina
Our 5-year-old daughter started taking ballet lessons in March and just loves it!  She no longer walks around the house – instead she chasses through the rooms, pirouettes around the furniture and does an arabesque when picking up a toy off a shelf. 

Last night was her first ballet performance at a local high school’s performing arts center.  She was very nervous at first until she saw the big girl ‘fairy princess’ ballerina’s practice.  Then she was a giddy bundle of excitement.  Her 5-6 year old class, which has 5 little girls in it, danced to the song ‘Music Box’ by Regina Spektor and they did a fantastic job!

In fact, all the 100 or so dancers who ranged from 3-18 years old and performed everything from ballet to hip hop to jazz, to river dance, all did a great job and the night was a success!
