I feel like I'm stuck in an in-between time regarding homesteading. There is no home to stead, essentially. So everything I do is temporary or with an eye to the future. Potted plants, more reading and learning (or re-reading as I dig up books from boxes), the occasional loaf of bread just to make sure I can still bake worth a damn if I had to. What I need to do is start making projects for myself to complete during the day. (I really need to finish the gads of knitting projects I've built up.) It'd give me something to learn and pass the time with (and isn't just mundane housework, even if that needs to be done as well). I have started learning about herbalism. Like, seriously learning. Taking a correspondence course, which I know is kind of silly since there are so many books available on the subject. But, weeding through those books to find the good quality information is incredibly hard. And the course I'm taking is written by a very experienced herbalist. If nothing else, I can make soaps and lotions with actual benefits when I'm done. It's also a diversion, which I appreciate very much.
So, I don't know. There are things I'd still like to learn, like sewing using a machine (even hand stitching, beyond theory), and hunting with a bow. They'll just have to wait and patience is not one of my strong points.
