I like to use the word ~Original~ as an adjective to the noun Homestead. The idea is that your Homestead is just that…….Original. You do those things that bring you enjoyment as you create simple homemade living.
…….the definition of original is:
Created directly and personally by a particular artist; not a copy or imitation:
such as “Original Rembrandts”.
Synonyms to the word Original are: Authentic, Genuine and Actual…….
You decide, create, and build your Original Homestead as you see fit!
HOMESTEADING is actually a verb with the doing of living!!! So, with that understanding…….you can create your own homesteading ideals with a focus on simple daily living skill, being prepared and survival skills. Do what you can and what you want to do. You do not have to follow anyone else’s plan, structure or lifestyle.
Make a checklist of the things that sound exciting, interesting and affordable to you at this time. Evaluate those items that are doable and jump in and get started. You may simply want to grow a tomato plant, raise a few laying hens for fresh eggs or simply start with a handicraft such as knitting cotton dish-cloths for gifts.
You may decide to begin baking your own bread or eating a simpler more wholesome diet. If making your own from scratch cookies or meals is of interest, then get started. There are a host of ideas on what to start with but the big decision lies with you…….ask yourself what it is that inspires you and encourages you about simpler living and get started……….
