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…

37 degrees - 8:26pm - clear...

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…

3-year-old son:  “Good morning mom!  Can I go outside and play in the snow now?”
Me:  “Not yet Sweets.  We need to have breakfast first.”
3-year-old son:  (very upset little man) “Ahhhh Mom!”
6-year-old daughter:  “Dad said that he would take me for a ride on the snowmobile this morning!”
3-year old son:  “Me too!  I ride the snowbiel too!”
Me:  “No one is doing anything until after they eat breakfast.”
{Pancake Breakfast...}
6-year-old daughter:  (very excited) “Breakfast is over!  It’s time to ride the snowmobile!  I want to go really fast!”
Hubby:  “Jack go stand by the window and you can watch and then it will be your turn next.”
{Tony and Caitlyn out on the snowmobile – got up to 14 mph…}
6-year-old daughter:  “That’s too fast!  Slow down!  I wanna go home!
{Tony and Jack out on the snowmobile – got up to 32 mph…}
3-year-old-son: “Faster Dad!  Faster!”

{What we learned from this morning… Caitlyn can sometimes be a big talker, and Jack has his daddy’s love of machines gene.}
