A couple of weeks ago, Zach received a call from an Arkansas girl who's been hitch hiking across Europe for two years. She needed a place to rest, so we opened our home to her...give and you shall receive. This is the most valuable piece of advice I think anyone can learn.
So for the time being...until Rose gets the itch to move again and leaves us for uncharted territory, our little Spanish home is now an even four people. I will listen constantly, write down all of her wisdom in my journal, and get to working on all of those DIY (do it yourself) skills that are necessary for decreasing our footprint on the Earth and helping sustain the balance this world needs.
With that said, here are some current DIY projects we are working on:
making sauerkraut with leftover cabbage
making homemade books! this is Rose's little work station...she made a load of books in one week and has been teaching us the tricks of the trade.
playing the guitar! Hill is already a very talented musician, so she's been giving me lessons. I pay her in coffee and tea dates.
I encourage everyone to DO IT YOURSELF. It's rewarding and your brain will thank you for it.
