kmom2468Major Yayness!

Continued Blessings as you get off of the credit card bandwagon! 2 days ago


kmom2468Yay for bees!

I see you plan on planting various herbs for “your” bees – they love basil blooms, too, and there are many types of basils – and the flowers are quite pretty. Continued Blessings as you work on making the world a better place! 2 days ago

Getting better again. Yeah, the treadmill works as good as taking pills if I use it! 2 days ago


kmom2468Yay for Spring!

I’m out of cheers, but had to say, “Yay for Spring!” Continued Blessings as you dig in the dirt! 2 days ago


kmom2468Two months away from certification

So, it looks like I will be certified to teach Permaculture Design in two more months. I’m not sure how that translates into making money, yet. As someone without any experience yet, I can’t imagine that I can really charge very much. Maybe I can give some free classes at the library to start – a 2 hour introduction, perhaps? And see who would be interested in a longer class. Or who might want me to design their property. I don’t know how easy of a sell it will be, as I currently have no land and no actual experience. But if I can make $100 in a weekend, then that will be a start.

$100 – 14% for social security = $14
$100 – 34% fed income tax = $34
Net earnings on $100 = $52

Not much, but $200/month could support my amazon.com habit :) 2 days ago


kmom2468You might consider permaculture

Geoff Lawton is one of the premier teachers, and you can see some introductory videos ast http://www.GeoffLawton.com. Also, the Permaculture Research Institute would be another good place to start. Many Blessings on this adventure. 2 days ago


kmom2468Wow, this is persepctive changing...

So, between this and the project management conference that I went to for work, my world has been quite expanded. If I have the courage, I might be in for a career change and paradigm shift over the next 18 months. I can’t believe how much permaculture resonates with who I am and who I have been striving to be. 2 days ago


kmom2468Learning so much!

I read some books, listened to some pod casts, and watched several videos by Geoff Lawton & Ben Falk – glad I did – good prep for the class I am taking. Ordered the permaculture handbook by Bill Mollison – $30 discount through the class – glad I waited to buy it. So far, the analysis training has been very much like what I do as a business/systems analyst in the IT world. 1 week ago


kmom2468if you make comments...

you will get more cheers to allocate; however, you will have to use them sooner as they will expire. :) Continued Blessings as you bring cheer to people! 1 week ago


kmom2468Awesome!

Continued Blessings on your journey to an even more fantastic you! 2 weeks ago

kmom2468Blessings

on your road to a happier you. Stay strong! Keep moving forward towards the blessings you deserve!


kmom2468I believe in miracles

They happen every day! Continued Blessings!


kmom2468Maybe I can teach on the side?

I dunno, but I am tired putting all our extra $ into paying of debt. 3 weeks ago


kmom2468Painfully slow, but...

yeah, doing it. Got Transunion as clean as it’s getting, and all things considered, is not as bad as I thought. And, it is definitely showing a trend towards better credit health. Yay!... and now, to start tackling the /other/ credit agencies. The important things are: 1) I’m doing it 2) it will be the best it can be 3) I’M ALIVE3 weeks ago

can be solved in a garden.” Geoff Lawton 3 weeks ago


kmom2468Continued Blessings!

I’m out of cheers, but your post made me feel cheerful and blessed and full of gratitude, so I wanted to send some of that back to you! 3 weeks ago


kmom2468Donated blood again!

Such a simple thing to do. Such an amazing blessing to be able to give. 3 weeks ago


kmom2468I am sure to be fighting them, too

If the squirrel action at the bird feeder is any indication, looks like I will be battling them, too. Maybe something like this (without the swing out door), but maybe made lighter, so that you could easily remove it when you want to harvest or tend to the plants.
Good luck!

kmom2468I'm gonna do it!

Going to do it! I’m going to take Geoff Lawton’s online PDC – vehicle gets paid off, and this will be like making two more vehicle payments. I’m going to put what I learn on this blog: http://www.permaculture-notes.com/ 3 weeks ago


kmom2468The county one starts in May!

A month earlier than my favorite one – can’t wait! 4 weeks ago


kmom2468Online PDC from Geoff Lawton

Signups start 3/29. About $1,000. I’ve been very frugal. I can pay in 3 monthly installments. I really want to do this. What will I give up and how will I finance this without blowing up the goal to be debt free? Something to think about. 4 weeks ago


kmom2468135/87

yay! 4 weeks ago


kmom2468Company's coming!

And it’s Spring. Both good motivators for cleaning up even more! My friend knows I’m extremely messy, and she doesn’t care and loves me for me; however, it would be nice to have my office/guest bed room to be in a tidy condition for her. ... AND, some day we are moving again… 4 weeks ago


kmom2468Doesn't start until June 7th this year

Tired of bland store bought tomatoes! 4 weeks ago


kmom2468Since the beginning of the year

1. Peach Oolong by The Green Teahouse (loose leaf) – most best favorite
2. Twinings Winter Spice
3. 500 Mile Chai – could use some anise, and doesn’t taste quite as rich as its aroma; however, it is still my favorite chai 4 weeks ago

kmom2468Maybe a new experience...

Have you tried loose leaf teas? At least as far as green teas go, I find them to have a better flavor. I drink mostly green and herbal “teas” – but maybe now I should try some EG! Continued blessings on you tea journey! 4 weeks ago


kmom2468So now I'm hoarding groceries?

I wanted to build up my pantry to tide us over 30 days in the event of a minor disaster. I’m there. I need a little more water, but essentially, I’m there. I can stop buying “extra” groceries, now. This spending addiction is a tough one to not let creep into every aspect of my life. Simple grocery shopping – who knew! 1 month ago


kmom2468Love the picture!

Fried chicken for lunch, cupcakes for dessert – sounds like a winning combination to me! Continued Blessings! 1 month ago
