What does a Garden Gnome do when she is not gardening, in the kitchen or doing genealogy? Well the answer might just surprise you so read the entries to find out more. This blog focuses on everything we do to make our house a home. There will be a strong emphasis on home energy efficiency and do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. At the same time there will also be crafts, knitting and crocheting projects along with any other little tips we do to create that down to earth, I want to be here home. Please enjoy your visit :)

Welcoming 2011

Happy New Year!
Today we welcome 2011.  The new year is awaiting for us to fill it.  I have a lot of homemaking plans this year both at our primary and vacation residences.  As usual the focus will be on energy conservation and efficiency.  This year I hope to further our goal of getting off the grid at our primary residence.  It will be delayed slightly until we sell this house but should be in full swing once we move.  Other than that, 2011 promises to be an exciting year around our homes!
