How Did This Happen?

It’s been a strangely packed week here on my little urban homestead. What’s sad is that it’s only Wednesday, and I’ve only left the house once for an hour to walk to the store. I think it’s going to be a very long week!

Usually, I’m whining about having to run here for this activity and there for that activity, but all is quiet on the schedule front. So, what has me so busy? We ran out of everything homemade at the same time! Do you have any idea how difficult that actually is? It’s like having all of the planets aligned and then throw in a lunar eclipse. (I’m not sure that analogy is even physically possible, but it sounded like a very rare occurrence.) Let me explain why it’s so odd to have everything empty all at once.

Some things are just normal weekly jobs like making granola and yogurt and grinding flour and flaking oats. But everything else is on a different schedule. I make dog biscuits about every 2 to 3 weeks, and the jar was empty on Tuesday. I squeezed the last of the laundry soap out of the jug on Monday which is a monthly chore. Then I scraped the last of my deodorant out of the jar on Monday, too, even though my homemade deodorant lasts about 3 months. All of the homemade wine needs racking which happens about every 2 months. Mosquitoes are going crazy so I need to make more bug repellent, my husband hurt his foot so we need more massage oil, and my daughter ran out of foot slather. I’m starting to sound like a bad country song! But really, how does everything run out at the same time? When you figure out the odds on that, please tell me. No wait. I don’t want to know.

Well, I had better get back to replenishing everything. Nothing on the list takes more than a few minutes to make, and I have all of the ingredients on hand, but wow, the list still looks looooong! I think I need an extra cup of coffee and a little more quiet time before I try tackling that to-do list!

Thanks for stopping by and enduring my rambling rant. It’s not really a rant, though. I’m just overwhelmed and amazed at the turn of events this week. How’s your week going? Oh, and did you enter my GiveAway? It's my very first, you know.

Grace and peace be yours in abundance,


  1. Good for you! Even though your list seems long, look at all you accomplish by yourself! Sometimes visually seeing the list, makes you appreciate all of your talents!

  2. I am amazed and impressed by all of the things you make. That is terrific!
