|What have we been up to lately if not cooking? Reading lots of library books!|
"Many people confuse self-reliance with self-sufficiency. Especially in an urban area, such as [Los Angeles], true-self-sufficient living is impossible. We can't grow all of our own grain or keep a cow. We can and should, however, build a community with like-minded people and continuously work toward self-reliance: the ability to make and do things. A self-reliant community builds resilience through networks of shared skills and goods with the goal of sustainable living."Whew! I feel better.
This weekend is Vera's 3rd birthday party so I actually have had some time in the last month or so amid the mess to put together some handmade decorations, prizes, goodies, and games for her big celebration. Stay tuned for photos in my next post.
