...ever close your eyes,-
ever stop and listen,
ever feel alive-
and you have nothing missing.
YOU DON'T NEED A REASON-
let the day go on and on...
We are happy and smiley little latvian/english family - Linda and Joel with two small daughters who just enjoy magic of the world and teamwork in everything what we do.. :)
..just lost in nature and touched its beauty...
...and ART IS EVERYWHERE...and love is everywhere...
We can find inspiration in all ways we can....
....In tall grass,
....in small old town with smell of spring or big city with graphical glasses,
....in sound of grasshopper,or in old old yellow newspapers list who can tell us a story...
We really enjoy all what life offers to us...
All these magical moments, random possibilities,lovely people... And incredible nature .. :D
we like people a lot... :) and we like to share... :)
Share good moments, time, smiles, picnics and millions of small details what are all around...
..we like to jump high, laugh out loud and to celebrate the Life every day... :)
“What day is it?"
"It's today," squeaked Piglet.
"My favorite day," said Pooh.
Aware living... And appreciation... That is our meditation...
Everything what we do has a proper meaning. Everything what we have created around us has a deep value.. We are doing our best to be the best example for our children.
We eat healthy, we live healthy, we think healthy... We love life and we enjoy fruits of our work.
We think that any job connected to nature is so enjoyable.. It is a lifestyle.. It is a life...
...EVERYTHING IS FOR A REASON.... AND FOR A GOOD REASON....
Welcome to our home.. :)
1.Gardening and landscape creating:
- We have our garden where we are growing our vegetables,- so part of the time could be helping in the garden... weeding, planting, seeding etc.
- In the Spring time it would be all about prepering soil, getting ready greenhouse, seeding pots and a lot of different tasks for landscape improving.
- Through all summer there would be a lot of grass cutting (with oldfashioned scythe)
2. Natural building:
We are making vigvam style sauna at the moment. With birch bark and soil. So a lot of small jobs to finish it.
3. Canning for winter:
When all vegetables, fruits, berries and mushrooms are ready (in July/ August/September)- there is time to put them into yummy home made things. To make some jam, juices, chatneys or pickles... very creative part. :)
4. Plants and Herbs:
Collecting/cutting (into small pieces) and sorting herbs and plants for tea/herb mixes all summertime depending from the right moon phase and the readiness of the plant....
5. Wood preperation for Winter:
-In Spring time there would be proper time for tree chopping in the wood - to prepare logs for the Winter. After that there is time for chopping them smaller and then nicely stack them inside the barn. This is going to be in different stages.
6. Foraging food for every meal.
If you would like to learn about wild plants and how to include them in to your meals then we are happy to share.
And we always cook our evening meals on open outside fire.. Everything tastes better.. And all life is on front of you...
We are very opened for things and work..
... As a family homestead there is no proper time scale for things. There is wonderful cooperation with nature, with each other, with mood, with weather..
We work and we rest.. Sometimes more and sometimes less..
Slow living, but efficient working...
- So there would be proper daytime tasks, but a lot of things would be just a daily routine with no properly set time to do them (for an instance: foraging food , bring wood for house,watering flowers , tidying the house, making sure that countryside is ''prepered for bed-time'' and other daily family tasks.)
...for us volunteering meens being part of family-so it is nice that everyone is just making sure that things are nicely done around all of us..
...we prefer very flexible life, - so no special rules around us... just common sense and friendly attitude... :)
.. And you just need to love simple, honest, natural lifestyle... And need to be ready to dive deep into it.
We have lovely countryside house... Wonderful nature.. A lot of birds, flowers and good vibes around.
... Slow living...
.... from our own expierence volunteering is all about to try new things and open different horizonts. :)
For sure you will be part of our family with amazing vegetarian food from our garden...
...and very, very simple but multicultural lifestyle...
