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.

One Crazy Week...

56 degrees - 9:35 pm - raining...

This week has been go, go, go and we didn’t even get anything done on the house.  Here is a quick recap of the week... on top of the normal work and home stuff there were three trips to Les Schwab (one rock and two nails), ballet dress rehearsal and ballet performance...

Caitlyn's third ballet performance (she's the one facing the camera)

...14+ hours on the weedeater, getting ready for Caitlyn’s 7th birthday party, baking and decorating 8 dozen cupcakes...


...party location change due to rainy weather, and finally having a successful birthday party with 67 guests...whew! 


(p.s. - the marshmallow shooters were a HUGE hit with both kids and adults!)

The crazy week is now over, and it is time to get focused back on the house.

  1. I just found your website through a group on Facebook. I officially LOVE your blog, and I love what you're doing! I grew up regularly visiting Mt Rainer and the surrounding areas, so I can't help but get excited when I see all of your wonderful stories and images. I couldn't be a hard-core off-the-grid kind of person because I like a few modern technologies, so I also appreciate that you still make trips to the store for Ben and Jerry's, and you use your car. This is a really cool blog!
