Introducing the Forum!

Oh, this is such an exciting week for me! All of these things that I have been dreaming up and planning for so long are finally taking place! For quite some time, I’ve wanted to launch a forum here at Keeper of the Home. A place where all of those wonderful questions that get asked in the comments could be answered in a more purposeful way. A place where women could connect with other like-minded women. A place where knowledge and tips can be shared, […]

**It’s my 2nd Blogiversary and I’m celebrating all week!

I Tweet! (Oh yes, I do!)

Did you think you’d ever see the day when I joined Twitter? :) I haven’t been shy in my dislike for social media or the fact that I think it can tend to be a time-stealer and get in the way of being focused and efficient in my roles as a mom, wife and homemaker (and note that I said in my roles, because I know my own tendency to get off track if I’m not careful- I know that many people are able to […]

Cleansing and Detoxing: A Few Simple Ways to Do It

One of the things about living in a polluted world, full of toxic chemicals in the water, air, food supply, etc. is that they don’t just stay on the outside but many of them end up on the inside, too.

Raw Milk Substitute for Cultured Dairy Products

Image by tellgraf Raw milk is a luxury around this household. As I’ve mentioned before, we pay about $18 a gallon for our grass-fed, raw milk from a nearby farm.

For some of you, the cost simply makes buying raw milk an impossibility. For others, raw milk is illegal where […]

Some Housekeeping (in the Midst of the Chaos!)

First off, a big ol’ apology to everyone for the train wreck that is my blog right now! This week we are in the midst of a switchover from my previous blog platform (Typepad) to a self-hosted site through WordPress. Though you can’t see a whole lot of outward changes, there is a LOT happening in the back-end of my site. The reason for doing this is that it will ultimately give me much more control over how I want my site to look and […]
