We finally got around to planting our maple tree this Sunday. The large circle of dirt is where the previous owners had a pool - we just filled it with topsoil a couple months ago and have yet to seed it.
Down-to-Earth, a blog I frequent has set up a forum (you will have to sign-up for an account but it is free).
The blog & forum revolve around simplified living/homesteading. I am having a great time reading everything there. I want a small homestead SO bad now :) Check it out.
A random pic of Peanut - DH says she is spoiled...what do you think? :)
