Day 42 was a special experience.

I had the privilege of attending Gateway Tech 25 years ago. I graduated from their Police Science program and picked up a few essential tools for life in the process. It wasn't all related to law enforcement, it was also lessons in perse...

It's been days but we have kombucha!

Back on the 6th day of this adventure I started growing a SCOBY so that I could brew my own kombucha. I waited a few weeks for the SCOBY to grow. It was pretty thick and ready to move on to fermenting the actual drink. I transferred...

The numbers game

Today was an adventure in numbers. Have you ever looked at the clock and 11:11 comes up? It seems to happen all of the time and I've wanted to understand if there's a higher meaning to it.

My plan of attack was to sit down and read the mysterious ancient...

Busting it up- Stones are the bones of the Earth.

My 39th day is an adventure through the Ohio renaissance festival. I was pretty sure I was going to experience something new but I had no idea there was going to be snow on the way to the Faire. 

When we went to bed...

Flight and arrows

My 37th adventure was all about building a bow. I had the best time but that seems like only half of a project. On the 38th day I made three arrows to accompany that bow.

Day 36 and the fruit of a Dragon.

Okay, it's not the fruit of a dragon but it is the fruit that looks like something a dragon might cough up if it was choking. 

I decided I needed to eat this fruit at some point in the experience. If you go back over the last 36 days I'v...

Day 35 was wild!

My 35th day included Bison, alpaca, llamas and bucket loads of other wild beasts. Believe it or not there is a Safari almost in my own backyard. I got a ticket for a rainy day adventure and little did I know it was going to be more amazing than I ever e...

Day 34 and Celtic knots

I have always had a fascination with Celtic and Egyptian art. I've spent a ton of time playing with ancient egypt and making cartouche symbols with many many kids, but I've never tried to draw celtic knots and especially the triquetra. It's got a...

Today's experience was an interesting one. 

Aloe vera.

Don't shake your head. It's not just for skin irritation. I've been reading quite a bit about the leaves of this plant. I've always had one in my house for burns but never thought to use it for anything else. The lea...
