Farmgirl School; Homesteading 101 (back to basics for an enchanting, simple life)

Homestead 101 Cover

My book is out!  I sold several copies over the weekend.  It is filled with articles about pursuing your dreams, living a simpler life with less bills (so less work), and breathing in every day, along with everything you need to know about creating your own grocery store (preserving), gardening, soap making, candle making, medicine making, gift making, starting a farm, getting farm animals, and SO much more.  It is a hoot to see it in print.

There are some things I learned while compiling articles from the last two and a half years of blogging and editing the final book.  I was horrified to find that there is at least one typo in every post.  I shall not be so hard on writers while reading books any longer.

I also learned that I have repeated myself often over the years and at times contradicted myself….or maybe just changed my mind….or maybe found a way to do it better!

I learned that we have learned so much in such a relatively short amount of time and that it is never too late to chase that dream and learn new skills.

The universe always conspires to make dreams and goals come to fruition.

We have had a great time practice farming and look forward to being full time farmers and teachers now.  If you are interested in receiving my book, just send $22 plus $6 shipping to Katie Sanders, 7080 Calhan Road South, house 2, Calhan, CO, 80808.  I am so excited to share with you all that we have learned.  I can’t wait to see what we learn this year!

 

Something New for Your Bookshelf (my two new books!)

Homesteader's Pharmacy Cover

I have been missing.  What could keep me from writing my blog?  What could make my house look like a tornado hit it?  Dishes piled up in the sink, papers strewn everywhere?  My back has been my enemy.  The enemy of a writer who types too much.  That is not why I haven’t been writing here though, it’s because I have been putting the finishing touches on my two new books.

The first came out Saturday.  The Homesteader’s Pharmacy; The Recipes of Garden Fairy Apothecary made its debut.  All of my life’s work in herbalism thus far.  Every hour of research, every medicine made, every plant wild crafted, every body product recipe, every medicine recipe all combined in a book easily understandable now that I am closing my company.  Secrets I kept from my own students.  Every tried and true recipe recorded and ready to share.

Homestead 101 Cover

The second book will be out by the thirteenth of March.  Farmgirl School; Homesteading 101 will lead new homesteaders on their journey without quite as many trials and errors as we had!  Sections include achieving goals, farming, chickens, ducks, goats, skills, preserving, recipes, and much more!  Excerpts from the blog and additional notes make up the book.

So, now, if you will excuse me, I have a hot water bottle and a sore back to attend to.  And a house to clean!

If you are interested in the Homestead’s Pharmacy simply send a check to Katie Sanders, 7080 Calhan Road South, house 2, Calhan, CO 80808 for $40 plus $7 shipping and handling.  I am excited to share this information with you.  Thanks for reading my works.  I could not be a writer without readers.  Here’s to your health and empowerment!
