homestead heart blog used to be all about simple living, sustainability and homesteading. i have changed the subheading because while i'll always have a homestead heart and hold that lifestyle near and dear to me and adhere to the philosophy and principals i've always had, i no longer homestead or live in the country. now i reside in a neighborhood on the outskirts of small town, ohio. my heart will always be in the country, that is for sure. but with life changes, age and physical limitations, i am where i need to be for now.
as a commenter said in my last post, i am surfacing like dory in "finding nemo" who chanted, "just keep swimming, swimming.". that is a good feeling. when mark and i moved into this house from the apartment we were in i felt like i was getting back a little piece of myself. just to be able to have some space around me, a nice back yard with trees, birds, squirrels, living things...that was priceless. now i have a kitchen worthy of working in. what a blessing! i still love to cook and will no doubt be sharing recipes as i have in the past. mostly i just want a place to be me, to assist in the reclaiming of myself. i no longer want this blog to be one thing, but all things that matter to me. maybe that's what it was before? either way, it will be whatever i make it. :)
