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.

Saturday Evening Post...

71 degrees - 11:30 am - sunny and getting hot...

A small glimpse into our lives as we live off-grid… sort of like eves dropping.  It may be a thought, quote or a conversation; funny, sweet or sad; but it will always be true.  We will see if it resonates with you…

6 year old Daughter:  “Hey Mom!  Look there’s three deer in the backyard!”
Me:  “Yes, there are.  It looks like there are two young bucks and one doe.” (walk back into the kitchen to finish making breakfast)
6 year old Daughter:  “Hey Jack, there’s some deer in the backyard.”
2 year old Son:  “Where?  Where?  Oh I see them.”
6 year old Daughter:  “Hey Mom!  Come here, hurry!  Look they are trying to give each other piggy back rides! Hahaha!”
2 year old Son:  “Hahaha, that’s funny.  Silly deers.”
Me:  “What?  Oh, um, yah…  Oh look, now the deer are off to go play tag.  Okay everyone back to the table, breakfast is ready.”
