Hello out there! This is my first post here and I just wanted to talk a little about myself and what this blog will be all about.

I'm Mrs. Yoder, a 28 year old mother of two R.O.U's named Joshua and Kathryne. We homeschool, and let me tell you, that's so much fun with an 8 year old and a 3 year old. Especially considering they are both Leos. ::shuddercrywail::

Anyway, I'm an herbalist who likes to also sew, knit, cook, uncook, garden, and read. There are other things that I like to do as well, but they come and go. This blog is mostly going to cover my herbs, but I will also be adding other assorted tiddly-bits about other things. If you like an eclectic blog, then this is the place for you!

I lost my job in September 2009, and my husband found a better job at the same time so I am now living my dream as a stay at home mom for the first time. I love it and I struggle with it at the same time. I love that I now have the TIME to do all the things that I wanted to do when I was working 12 hour days like help out at church, putter around in my garden, work on my herbal studies, and homeschool our children. But I also get cabin fever a bit and find that I sometimes miss the morning commute to work, if only for the peace of honking cars and morning radio.

So I'm setting up my first real post now. I'll be doing an Herb of the Week here at my blog, in addition to various other postings about other random herby/lifey/crafty things.

Peas (peace),
Mrs Yoder
