Nearly two months on in our move off the grid a rhythm has finally made an appearance. Granted, rhythm looks a whole lot different now, but some familiar things are reappearing.

Freshly ground grain ground by little (and big) hands.

Vegetables are being fermented.

The sea salt has been unpacked.

Homemade sour cream is once again on the menu.

And school is back on the daily agenda.

We’ll take a bit of rhythm in this new home in any form it comes.

    Love reading about your new journey!! What do you use for kindergarten? We are about to enter this phase (this coming school year) and I am stuck between My Father’s World and Rod and Staff.

    Want to hear MORE, MORE, MORE about your off-grid lifestyle. Maybe you could tell us where you started with learning and how you got to this stage? And will you have solar or wind power or generator and such details!!


  5. Routine can be a blessed thing. Something I’ve been missing since our move. Nice to read that life is getting some familiarity back, I’m sure that feels wonderful.

    Glad to hear you are settling in and finding some routine again. Makes life a bit easier with little ones, that’s for sure.

    We have had a fair share of transitions, and I am reminded every time of how little we need to be happy. It is those little routines that make me feel sane and “home”. Not the walls we live in, how clean the floors are, or the number of possessions. And laughter fixes a lot of frustrations.

    Glad to hear you are getting back to your routine. The pictures are beautiful! I don’t think I’d ever have the patience to grind my own flour, but I bet it tastes amazing in baked goods.
