The dream of building a simple homestead meets up every day with reality. In the dream, equipment starts, when things get done they stay done, our bodies have sufficient energy and learning from a book is all that is required to make something happen. In the dream, I would make herbal preparations to bring in a little income to the homestead and how hard can it be to build a website with a shopping cart?
In reality, equipment breaks at a regular pace and we're not mechanics, we get tired and sore, and not everything is covered in the books. In reality I don't have time to spend on online marketing and building a website is about to make me pull my hair out. Food and shelter have to be the top priority. So every day I have to think about what needs to be done to accomplish those goals and squeezing in everything else at the end of a long day.
