Good morning on Wednesday, July 7, 2021!
Missed last week's hop? You'll find it right here: Homestead Blog Hop 347.
What's New at An Off Grid Life This Week
As we watched the wildfires spreading across BC last week, we were a bit anxious. Wildfires and bush fires are a very real threat in the Northwest Territories. Although we're in the subarctic, historically, summers can be dry. However, for the last two years we've had a ton of rain. Which is great for keeping the fires in check. Not so great for our renovation work.
With one eye on the forecast, we kept up with our regular gardening and egg-collecting chores. The boys and Dan worked on putting in a new dining room window, one that opens so we can get a cross-breeze.
To see more of our day-to-day adventures, why not follow along on Instagram?
