I've got a few regular blogs that I read, but wanted to add a few more to the list. Got any good ones?

Isn't a fun blog? Last time I visited, she was spinning wool by the fireplace with baby on lap. She looked like a painting. I really love her and her family and feel lucky to have her near.

Lobster, your blog is great. There is a urban homesteaders thread going on, I bet they would love to see this over there.

I looked through some of those blogs. Spent several hours today going through them. There are some awesome people out there ...I love homestead blogs. It's a guilty pleasure of mine.

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.

http://www.ultimatemoneyblog.com is one of my favorite blogs. She gardens, is trying to live a self sufficient life, and talks about frugality too. There are also great recipes to make your own body products and stuff!

Not as hard core as some because I can drive into town easily but I just finished my shower/porta pottie enclosure. I think it's pretty cute.

I just started a blog yesterday. So, not much there yet! And we're not hardcore either. Just starting out on the journey to self-sufficiency.

I have to recommend www.thepioneerwoman.com.

She has the most beautiful photos of her cattle ranch and family. Real cowboys!

She is also an amazing storyteller.

I've started blogging about our little veggie farm as well.

Have a great day.
