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.

Spring Break...

5:37 pm - 39 degrees - light snow/rain mix

Break’s over – now where’s my normal? 
 
Spring break was very busy...  The week started off with some really gorgeous weather.  The snow had finally all melted off and we were able to get outside and do some work out in the yard, which we really enjoy.  In prepping for our pond {click here} Tony has been doing a lot of clearing and burning, while I was doing some winter clean up around the yard. 


Of course the kids got to have some fun also.  We went on several hikes around the mountain, had a picnic and made fairy houses with our Girl Scout troop.

This is Caitlyn's Fariy House... with some help from Mom. 

Then it was time to get away from the mountain and take a little road trip to the beach!  The beach property is our go-to get-away anytime we need a mini vacation away from the mountain {click here, here, here and here}.  Unfortunately the weather wasn’t so nice there; it was cold, windy and raining for the majority of the trip.  We did have a few breaks in the weather where we got to go out and enjoy the beach before it was time to head on home.


Jack decided to ride his sister's bike to show us that he doesn't need training
 wheels anymore while Caitlyn was learning how to drive the 4-wheeler.



We’re now back home and I think we brought the nasty weather with us.  It has been a crazy mix of rain, sleet and snow which has been ranging from light to heavy all day long.  I can’t wait for the warmer days to hurry up and get here!
