During these dreary days of Winter, while we are starting to really miss the sunshine and the garden growing, it is easy to become a little down. According to the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information), Seasonal Affective Disorder affects about six percent of the population, and up to 20 percent may also experience milder affects of S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder), also known as the “Winter Blues.” Symptoms include a general feeling of melancholy, lowered energy, cravings for sugars and starches, and weight gain to full-blown depression symptoms. Some people may even withdraw from family and friends. But there are some things you can do about this!

It's been my dream to have a homestead for a LONG time. Finally, we bought a property about an hour out of Las Vegas, NV in the high mountain desert. It's small...but it's working. What I have realized is that you can homestead anywhere....even in an urban environment. When I look back now on my life in Las Vegas, I recognize I've been homesteading in various ways for years! We've just expanded, that's all! Our property is 3/4 acre of desert land, and we are making this work! It's so exciting! I'm dedicated to learning with and sharing with other like-minded people...all about being self-sufficient!
