Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

Goodness, I didn't know you'd lived in Point Pleasant! That's right close by me.

As for Nik's college tuition, not to worry. You surely qualify for the Pell Grant and he can get work study. We were poor as dirt when my oldest son and I went to college at the same time. Just be sure you get the FAFSA filled out as soon as you can.

Love your TV list--matches mine :-) Larry watches movies on his DVD player.
