New Blog

I hope you all find your way over here, I am sorry to leave the other blog, but I needed a blog linked to my work email account so have started a new one. Older posts can be found at
I figured to make this one easy to find if you know me. So the new address is

Caminho de Vida? It means Path or Way of Life. For me this relates to my house and garden and my life. In my life, I am on a journey in faith. I hope I never stop learning about and growing in relationship with my creator God, and teaching others about and encouraging them in their faith as well.

I have been looking for a name for my house for a while, not wanting to rush. I felt maybe to give it a name in Portugues, the language of Brasil. This is my second language, having lived there for a year after finishing school and loving it. I want my house to be a house that brings life to people. Good food and good fellowship. I don't want it to just be my living area, but to bring others in. Possibly to foster children, and allow them to experience my life. I want to live in community with my neighbours, and also in my house.

This relates to my garden as well, which I post about regularly in that my garden does sustain me. It sustains me physically, by growing food in it. It sustains me emotionally, as I relax after work by going to the garden, planting, nurturing. It sustains me spiritually as I look upon the wonder of a seed that grows into a plant, the wonder of God's creation. I hope that in the future, it will contribute to sustaining me financially, that there will be a surplus to share, to exchange/barter and to sell.

Hope you will join me on the next part of my journey, and please leave some comments behind as you visit.

Hi Han, I wanted to reply to your comment on my blog, I always like to read the first post on a new blog, so thought this was as good a place as any to say hi. I am very impressed by your vege haul, so I'll have to follow you and see if I can pick up any tips. Also great that you're into permaculture. Cheers, Liz
