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…

40 degrees - 11:08 am - sunny and windy...

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…

{as we are driving home in the snow…}
3-year-old son:  “Deer!”
Me:  “Where?”
3-year-old son:  “Right back there!”
Me:  “Oh I missed it, but good eyes Jack!”
3-year-old son:  (all proud of himself for spotting the deer)  “Thank you Mom!”
Me:  “Your welcome.”
3-year-old son:  “What do you see Mom?”
Me:  “Hmmm… I see snow.”  (trying to keep my eyes on the road because I don’t like driving in the snow)
3-year-old son:  (very serious)  “Good eyes Mom!”
Me:  (laughing)  “Awh, thanks sweetie.”
3-year-old son:  “Your welcome.”
