I am a homesteader! However, I am not your traditional homesteader!
We don’t have chickens, goats, cows or pigs!
We don’t even have our own land to grow vegetables!
In truth, mom and I have been traveling in our RV for just about 4 years!
I have been working at different campgrounds in the office, checking in guests, taking reservations, and answering phones, among other things!
When allowed, we plant a garden in containers…
We buy fresh, organic foods from local farmers..
and we have learned how to preserve our foods through dehydrating and canning…
But somewhere along the line, we got off track!
We started eating out more often, because it seemed to fit my hectic schedule! Burger joints became the norm and my health took a nosedive!
My most recent ‘job’ came to an end because the campground closed for the season, so now I am ‘officially unemployed.’ Well, in the traditional sense anyhow…
I am still working! I’m just self-employed!
I have my freeze-dried food business, which you can find HERE… as well as my photography! Yes, I found a company that is willing to pay me to do something I enjoy! How cool is that?!?
Since I am working for myself, I can work the hours I want, so I should be able to find the time to focus more on the homesteading side of things… with permission, I will once again grow a garden… start up preserving our foods, and focus on a more organic, homesteading lifestyle!
Therefore, moving forward, this homestead of ours has a renewed purpose, even if not in the traditional sense!
Here’s to new beginnings!
Peace, Love and Safe Travels!
