Hello / Goodbye

I am so excited to finally reveal Pocket Pause, with “Tails” of my family’s adventures: our follies while learning to farm, and the joys i get from food, cooking and practicing fiber arts. Yay! If you are a long – time reader of An Austin Homestead, you will love Pocket Pause, even if we left you back in Texas. While Pocket Pause will have an Oregonian angle, my focus will always be on sustainability, which transcends all borders. Watch for the occasional post from Pocket, our blog’s namesake and the best little corgi in the world. PS, Pocket is a girl.

Browse around this new site, and feel free to comment with feedback on what you’d like to see more or less of. You can expect to read lots of posts about local hikes and travel destinations in Oregon, delicious and easy recipes, local and national resources for sustainably grown meat and veggies, tutorials and DIY tips, helpful links and more! Pocket Pause will be a week day blog, with 3-5 posts a week. Looking for more tips on DIY beauty products or herbal medicine? Check out Bathtime, our sister blog for weekly posts about natural bathing, healing and fun using herbs and essential oils.

I am working a “recipes” page, and hope to have that ready and published soon. In the meantime you can find all my older recipes, along with all older archives at An Austin Homestead.  How would you like to see recipes organized? By meal? By ingredient? Comment below with your preference! Consider answering this little poll, as well. I want to know what you want to read:

Please join me in wishing An Austin Homestead a big “good-bye” and i hope you will stick around Pocket Pause for many more of the posts you have enjoyed and will continue to enjoy in this new location. New to both blogs? Welcome! Along with this blog, you can find links, updates and more at Facebook and on Twitter. Check out the cool toolbar at the bottom of this page to “Like,” “Follow,” and check out our latest tweets. Sometimes homesteading is awfully high tech, don’t you think?

    Looks great. Will this just sub for the old web site or do I re-bookmark?
    Good job.
