Jocelyn's life is all about balance. Maybe that's why she's an accountant and is such an advocate for keeping our natural systems healthy.
As a child, she perched on branches, collected moss and fungus, caught frogs and snakes, and climbed up into swaying tree forts in her beloved Pacific Northwest woods. Then, as a teenager, she learned that reining in sugar kept her more alert and energetic. These youthful observations grew into passions for walks in the woods, gardening, herbal remedies, and natural parenting with whole and traditional foods. More recently, Jocelyn's interest in the natural and healthy led to all things permaculture and she completed her first permaculture design course in 2010.
Jocelyn enjoys helping 1- and 2- person micro-businesses spend less time on their bookkeeping, or putting on feast nights at wheaton labs (the permaculture community where she lives with her guy, Paul Wheaton), or helping achieve further world domination for the empire.

A friend just alerted me to the Sioux Chef's book:
The Sioux Chef's Idigenous Kitchen by Sean Sherman with Beth Dooley
(Amazon affiliate link).

Folks are again (in Nov. 2019) talking about his book as part of the discussion surrounding a Nov. 2018 Time article:
The Thanksgiving Tale We Tell Is a Harmful Lie. As a Native American, I’ve Found a Better Way to Celebrate the Holiday

See our 2020 tour dates listed here! Or, click the "look for more" in the calendar at top.

We'll be posting about 2020 SKIP (Skills to Inherit Property) or PEP events, 2020 PDC, 2020 ATC and even a RMH Jamboree in the fall of 2020 (!!) as soon as we have more details nailed down.

Winter is here, and the holidays are upon us. (Replace "Christmas" with your winter holiday of choice.)

The struggle is not only real, it seems to be eternal!

From 1959!!

Yes! Exactly! Though there might be a time limit on it like 15 minutes or so.

I keep a thread, with an Amazon link in it,  bookmarked, and then I start there for all of my Amazon shopping.

Even if you don't want to buy more of the book, if you are doing ANY shopping on Amazon, and you use Paul's link above (or any Amazon link here on permies) it provides a little kickback that helps support the forums. At no additional cost to you!

Interesting how JP Sears's styled and quality evolved over the 5 years or so between those videos. Thanks for posting them, leila!

I prefer to set them off on a job of their own and prepare lunch for them, and my husband, and use the  excuse that I ate while I cooked, and disappear off for a quiet sit.  Hubby has said I appear antisocial.  He is absolutely right!  I think when the hoyse us done and I can have rooms all to myself I will be better. I could never live in an intentional community and I am in awe of people who do.

I can relate! Just the other week I learned that one resident here, and several visitors have been quite stressed over the joint cooking and joint meals in our house. It's also stressful to me and I miss my alone time in the kitchen. I'm re-structuring my days though and am hoping to have more alone time in the kitchen, soon.

r, that video was really helpful. He is quite the artist with his videos and his stories. Thank you.

This belonged here:

I don't think I need days to recover from "the futility of words," but there have been times that I've just needed my evenings to myself. Many or even most evenings. No visiting with others, nor even sharing a show with others. A large part of my day is spent sorting out accounting and payroll issues for clients, with vendors, with others, so even when it is a lot of e-mail or virtual communication, it's still communication with people. And I need a break in the evening.

So many learning and teachable moments with your "store" Nicole! How cool!

I thought this was a cute example of mandarin oranges with pumpkin faces drawn on them to hand out.
