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.

Weekend Update…

48 degrees - 10:50 am - blue sky and sunshine...

What a wonderful weekend.  We had gorgeous weather and got a lot accomplished.

The kids and I headed to the beach property for an end of the year clean-up weekend.  We had to winterizing everything since we won't be back until next year.

Took a little break to go and enjoy a walk on the beach.

Tony spent the weekend at home kind of doing the same thing.  He also flagged out a path where he wants to dig a trench for the water lines that will go from the well to the holding tanks, which are near the propane tanks and generator house.

And the chickens… they set a new record with 8 eggs in one day.  I think one of the girls might have an identity crisis and thinks it’s a duck.  The eggs that come out of her are HUGE double yolkers!  Anyways, with the chickens laying basically a bakers dozen ever two days, I currently have over four dozen eggs in the fridge.  Yikes!  I need to either start doing some serious baking or pawn them off onto family and friends.

Check out the size of that egg!  It's HUGE!
