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.

Where Are You Christmas…

35 degrees - 11:40 am - dreary and drizzling...

Tony is at work.  Caitlyn is on the couch reading a Dr. Seuss book.  Jack has decided that his mission for the day is to bug his sister and nothing seems to change that.  And I am currently looking out the window at the dreary, cloudy, foggy, drizzly day and wondering, “Where is all the snow at?  It’s just not Christmas without snow!”

this is the view out the window today

Christmas is just a few short days away.  Our tree is up and decorated.  Presents are wrapped and tucked under the tree (still missing a few though).  Christmas music is playing on the radio.  The oven is hot and the kitchen is full of delicious smells.  And I still find myself wondering, “Where are you Christmas?”

a year ago --- it really did feel like Christmas time with all the snow

We are living off-grid in the mountains.  Christmas just isn’t Christmas unless everything is covered in a twinkling blanket of white magic.

last Christmas --- and what I am hoping for this Christmas!
