"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

Continuing the introduction of new friends to old friends, please won't you join me in welcoming Michele from Mystic Mud in Tennessee.

Michele, you have my complete and utter full-on support and admiration.  Living in a caravan on a mountain top, with water restrictions, and, initially, limited power, would be hard enough.  But, to do that with 10 children, ranging in age from 16 to 6 months old - how on earth do you do it?

Michele, I reply to all comments (even those placed on old postings), but given the size of this planet, and the different time zones, it may not be today by your time, but will certainly be by tomorrow.  And, if I am on the farm it may take a little longer...LOL


  1. Hi Dani - thank you so much for the intro!!!

    We just do what needs to be done, which means we put out the biggest fire at the moment...lol, but seriously, somedays it is that bad, but that's what makes it an adventure.

    I'm sorry that it took me so long to get over here and say a proper thank you....it's been a busy week, and with my man going back to work from the mobile computer time has been very limited, but THANK YOU!!! :)

  2. Michele - You're welcome for the welcome LOL


Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day and removes the "loneliness' of sitting at my screen blogging supposedly to myself ;) I try and reply as quickly as possible so please forgive me if sometimes my response is delayed.
