We are Viking Homesteaders trapped in the 21st Century attempting to blend historically proven sustainable subsistence living, family values, and the mess of modern 21st Century jobs, regulations and taxes in a suburban neighborhood.
I love camping. I love being outdoors. I love the smell of cooked bacon, coffee and early mornings. But, I have never mixed camping with finals week. I think this is the calmest I have ever been starting finals week.
There is something about walking into the classroom smelling of wood smoke, dirt between my toes, and jeans. It is so rebellious and grounding.
However, it does through my entire routine off and I am running 30 minutes EARLY!! What's up with that!
