Treats No Tricks 2020

Lately, it seems that we have been hit with one thing after another. Most of my blog content has disappeared, which is a major case of brain fog.  I hope you will stay around while I regroup and replan my priorities and business plan.

Let’s get to know each other again.  I am Laurie, a mom and grandmother. My youngest child just turned 18 this year. They are twins, One boy and one girl. Double blessings.  Last year, we also started parenting in the role of foster parents, so we have a young one in the house again, keeping things busy.

We moved to this property in 2014 with the plans of homesteading and being self-sufficient. We’ve had pigs, alpacas, ducks, turkeys, and chickens. Plus our household dogs, cats, rabbits, reptiles, and fish. We had success with a few things actually growing in our garden this year that other years we had failed to grow. We are still in the learning stages, and as we are both ‘over the hill’ trying to decide if we are ‘too old’ to start something new,.

I and my youngest son are learning about herbs and essential oils and how they can be used for a variety of purposes. My youngest daughter makes products (dog bananas, leashes, etc.) and sells them on a website, donating a portion of the proceeds to local animal rescues.

I love to read and have been asked recently to read and review several books. Keep an eye out for some reviews!

Please enter in the comments and tell me about you. What are your interests? What problem are you looking for an answer to?

Enough about me for now. I hope you tell me about you so I can be sure to offer something that is useful to my readers.

I hope you, dear reader, are doing well. Fall is fully upon us, and we are preparing to face Mr. Winter. We just had a tornado tear out a lot of power across Maine with the high winds. Many of our beautiful autumn leaves are now lying on the ground.

I have been watching this through the windows. I had a partial knee replacement this past Monday, so I haven’t ventured out. With the recovery, I have missed being able to give time and attention to SeekingSerenityandHarmony.com and my readers. How are things in your neck of the woods?

I have been making some changes over the last few months. I have been taking some time to work through some courses on time management and productivity. These made me prioritize my goals. I realized health, of course, had to be the main goal because, without it, all of the other things would fall apart. Secondly, I really want to be able to smooth out the bumps and get things running more smoothly in the face of seeking serenity and harmony, both on the blog and on the homestead.

We had been working on advocacy in various ways. One of them is blogging and social media posts, of course. Another way is volunteering. We received our foster care license and our first foster child this past week.

As far as my health goals go, I am looking into more natural and homeopathic methods. I am beginning as a patient in an herbal clinic and that too started this week. It was really interesting as I filled out the intake forms last week, listing medical events and various life events and seeing some correlations.

Enjoy these treats while they last!

I collaborated with Crafts4Rescues, aka RescueDogProductions, on this blog post. She will be collaborating with me on a post on our experience with her Austrailian Cattle Dog/Beagle mix and a Herding Ball as well. The dog loves that thing.

For parents, I am going to be putting together some round-up posts soon of resources.  With a 4-year-old in the house now, I thought it would be fun to do a round-up of sensory activities, picky eating, parenting littles while dealing with chronic health issues, etc..

Another release coming soon is gift ideas and saving money tips when it comes to holiday planning. Which I have to admit I haven’t even started yet. But with Cara Harvey’s Trello Board and some other bloggers great resources, I am well on the way to getting on track.  I am also going to go back through some of the resources in the Ultimate Bundles master Your Money bundle.
