This rooster is the biggest scaredy cat of a chicken I have ever owned. He was hatched out of our own flock and he has been terrified of the humans since he laid eyes on them. 
But there in the background are two of my hugelkultur beds. Since we are apparently staying here on this property (not my choice but necessary right now), I decided these four beds should be our perennial gardens. We got two weeded out today and I slung goat manure on them when I cleaned out the barn. The chickens have been happily helping spread it all. 
In just a few minutes here my stepdad will be by with his rototiller and two garden plots will get tilled up. I have a scythe being delivered tomorrow to make work of that tall grass and then I can build some extra raised beds in the back pasture. 
So many plans as I'm trying to come to terms with not being able to move. Letting go of a dream, even temporarily, is hard. So I'm trying to build some new ones.

I woke to the sound of the birds chirping in the tree just outside my window. Walked my dogs and said good morning to my goats and chickens and ducks. Now I am enjoying a cup of coffee in the stillness and silence of the house. 
In just a bit a friend will be here and with sun shining, we plan to do some work in the garden, getting things ready to plant and grow. Tiny seeds will go in soon that will blossom into the foods we will eat all winter long. 
I have nest boxes to clean out and water troughs to clean and refill. There are eggs to collect and new fences to put up. 
Full spring days and intentional living.

We are heading into a sunny patch! After months of rain, I am so eager to be outside and soak up some vit d that didn't come from a jar in pill form! 
I have big plans for today that basically include cleaning out garden beds and getting ready to plant. Spring is easily one of the busiest seasons on the homestead but I love every second of it.

The warm weather is on the horizon. I ordered a scythe today to get to work this weekend on clearing some of that tall grass. I have plans for some raised beds out there... It's almost time to start planting!

Earth art.

I'm really, really ready for some sunshine. I have things I want to do outside! Maybe, possibly, without getting drenched.

Hey, thanks for joining my live class! If you missed it, I've posted it in my stories. It'll be there for 2r hours and it's all about stress and anxiety! Let's be real, who *doesn't* suffer from some stress and/or anxiety! 
Here's the spell jar ingredients in case you didn't get them written down! If you make one, please post a photo and tag me so I can see! 
Salt - For protection
Bay leaf - For strength
Coffee - For peace
Sage - For mental strength and protection 
Lavender - For calm
Chamomile - For relaxing your mind
Layer in a tiny jar, centering and focusing on feelings of calm and peace. Cork when you feel perfectly calm. Tuck your jar wherever you need help with anxious feelings. Under your pillow, in your purse, on a cord around your neck, etc. 
I hope you enjoyed the class!

Emotional support, all in a row. I'm going to chat about these oils tomorrow morning at 8am PST and how they can help with emotional support for depression and anxiety. I'm also going to share how to make an anti-anxiety spell jar. 
My last few weeks have been extremely emotional so this seemed fitting. I hope I'll see you there!

I'm slightly obsessed with tea. I have an entire cupboard *just* for tea. And a basket for what doesn't fit there. I blended this from foraged dead nettle, oregon grape flowers, and dandelion leaves. It has a lovely, earthy taste with a delicate flower overtone. Pretty much spring in a mug. Also helpful for seasonal allergies, especially when mixed with local, raw honey. 
If in doubt, make tea.

I do so love waking up early and watching the sunrise. Hopefully an omen of a good day.

My name is Lacey and I have a lace tattoo. 
My duck's name is Bill and he has a bill. 
Side note: he *hates* being held. I'm a cruel, cruel animal momma.

In our hectic lives and busy schedules, it can be difficult to find time for simplicity. It's almost as though society has forgotten how to live simply and the joy that can be found in less. 
My top five ways for living simply:
1. Take time to ground and meditate. Every. Single. Day. This action of choosing to be still and to connect with my higher self and the earth gives me calm and guidance. 
2. Spend time outside. I try to go outside every day, whether it's just to chat with my animals, or taking a long walk through the forest. Nature therapy. 
3. Journal. When I sit down and pour my heart into writing it helps to calm any anxieties, reveals hidden emotions and gives me some quiet moments. 
4. Make a pot of tea. There is nothing quite like a warm cup of tea to soothe both body and soul. 
5. I don't over commit. This is the art of saying "no". I only have so many hours in a day and I prioritize how I want to spend those hours. This means sometimes, I have to tell people no. 
How do you add simplicity to your life?

I've always loved dark paint colors. This deep, forest green sure makes the white fixtures pop! 
All last week and this week, I'm in full spring cleaning mode. Getting rid of *more* stuff, deep cleaning, touching up paint and working on getting rid of what little carpet we had left. 
It always feels nice to freshen up the space around you.

"Using the word 'witch' invariably brings us to the word 'magic'. This is a word that can bring confusion. Magic is not illusion, nor is it the artificial manipulation of unnatural forces. In fact, magic is perfectly natural: it is the use of natural energy with conscious intent and awareness to help attain a better understanding of the world around you and to harmonize yourself with the world's energies." -Arin Murphey-Hiscock and except from The Green Witch

I got a new book and I love it so much. It's all about how each oil supports you emotionally. I'm sporting clove and basil on my cuff diffuser lately.

Moody weather and waning moon makes the perfect moment for darker spell work.
