Hi! I’m Kate!
I’m not-your-average stay at home Mom. But, what Mom do you know is really average? I believe everyone has something that makes them different and unique, and no, I’m not standing on a soapbox here!
I love to cook and bake, because I’m passionate about our family eating good food. I want it to nurish us, not just fill our bellies.
I’m also not perfect, and I’m not afraid to admit it. Of course I want every day to start with sunshine, a clean house and nothing to do but play with my son and go outside for endless amounts of time. It’s just not going to happen! We all have bad days, sometimes it’s 4 o’clock and you realize you haven’t even been out the door for a few minutes. Whoops!
I strive to spend time outside, get enough exercise, have a clean kitchen before I go to bed, do one load of laundry a day, split my housework up into days of the week, eat three meals a day and get enough sleep. This obviously doesn’t happen, and I’m trying one day at a time, to accept that this all can’t happen. There has to be priorities, like eating enough, and getting enough sleep. I get cranky without that.
I’ve almost always had farm animals of some sort, and I don’t know if my life would be complete without them. It heals me to spend time outside doing mindless repetitive chores. I love that while milking our cow, I can put my head against her side and be absorbed in the silence.
That is, if I’m lucky enough to be there on my own. (Sometimes it happens…)
I have a passion for menu planning, thrift storing, sewing, anything in the kitchen, the outdoors, frugal living and anything with my family.
I hope you enjoy the ride!
