Quaker journey

Last year my husband and I resolved to live a healthier lifestyle.

And, well, we do. But there's always room for improvement! I know darn well  that while we make our own bread, our own laundry soap, compost and recycle religiously and heat with wood that we cut off our own land, we're still not living as earth-friendly and healthy as I would like. I'd love to introduce my children to a more farm-based and agriculturally driven life, but I've proved quite spectacularly that I cannot garden worth a hill of beans (yes, pun intended) and my husband falls silent when I talk about getting a few hens.

Y'know, for eggs.

He knows me well enough, though, to know that if he agreed to a couple of chickens, it wouldn't be long before I'd have sheep and a couple of turkeys. Or maybe a mule. Ooh, a mule!

Reining myself in is always a problem.

Maybe the ticket is starting small. Small changes. Like serving oatmeal more. The kids already like it, and it's healthy and satisfying on a cold morning.

Lynn from Walking With Scissors has been blogging over at, talking about simple changes her family is making to live a healthier lifestyle. And you can win prizes by reading her stories and commenting on them!

Easy-peasy. Like small changes. Small changes that can change everything.
