Group Orders from Local Farms - Beef

Deposits are required to secure your place in the order and she arranges pick upat her house in Concord. (This is especially advantageous for…See More

"I was just thinking today that I probably don't know that much about first aid, especially natural remedies. Would love to know what I could have done alternatively the 3 times that DS2 has had abx. (DS1 has never had abx.)"

FS: Water Cooler Tower -Very nice!

I have water cooler / tower that is for the big jugs of water that you either get delivered or buy at the store. It is a pretty nice one that my hubby got me for valentine's day a few years ago. It has a instant hot water spigot in addition to a cold and tepid spigot. It also has a mini fridge on the bottom! (the hot water spigot is childproof - you have to press it in two places.)I don't need it anymore b/c I had a water filter installed in the kitchen when we renovated it and I cancelled our…See More

"They did not cook properly - they did not get tan AT ALL. It was like I cooked in a sunscreen or heat protectant. And the texture was weird, sorta uncooked, but of course if it didn't cook it would still be liquid."

"I cook pancakes in CO. What happened to yours? I cook almost everything in it/with it. Anywhere that "oil" is called for, I use CO... or butter, and occasionally lard."

Profile Information

How long have you been interested in holistic living?
Since becoming a mother 2 years ago.
a little about me
I am wife to Michael, mother to Joseph (2yrs) and due with baby #2 in Jan 09. I am a proponent of natural birth, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, babywearing, elimination communication, delayed/selective vax, and above all - informed decision making!! I'm active in LLL and a relatively new mentor for DiaperFreeBaby.

Beginning with my belief in natural birth and natural mothering, I have started on a journey to explore other aspects of natural living, eating and health care (in other words, a holistic approach to life!).
