Out of toilet paper??

I know everyone is wondering where all the toilet paper went? I actually did too when I saw the aisles in our local stores and questioned if the Coronavirus gave you diarrhea. Having grown up in the Middle East, you never knew when the next shipment would come in. My family went one year before…

48 hrs in Boise, ID

If Reno and Portland had a love child, it would be Boise! Boise, Idaho has a little bit of everything from bike lanes, great pubs, restaurants, food trucks, history, nice people and great recreation.

Off-Grid Sink

For our little dry cabin, I REALLY wanted a sink and a medicine where I could brush my teeth, take out my contacts, and even do my hair. My neighbors/friends use a 12v water pump connected to their battery in order to have a full functioning faucet. Basically the faucet draws water from a fresh…

Picking a Cabin Name

After buying our place, we noticed that other people named their camps. We thought it was fun and started thinking of names of our own. Some people used their last names for their cabins and some used how their built theirs (i.e. a neighbor built his cabin with the money he made on “Wall $treet”)…

Interim Outdoor Off-Grid Bathroom

We are in the process of building an outdoor bathroom for our property and we are completely off-grid. In the interim, we needed some sort of shower structure/bathroom area. We decided on the kitty litter method until we get a septic system installed just because it’s the easiest and we’re not able to use a…

New Year’s Nails 

For Christmas I received some new nail stamps and a new clear XL Jelly Stamper from Uber Chic which made stamping my nails so much easier, placement wise. It took me a number of times to get the hang of it but in the end, I am so happy with the results.  Polish: Champagne color – China Gelaze…
