Well, Happy New Years, folks! I hope that the Eve was pleasant for everyone, and that the hangovers are not too bad *winks*
As for me, it was a quiet evening at home with the better half, drinking a few yummy Scottish ales, eating homemade pizza, and watching a movie. We also started discussing some plans for 2009.
We are figuring out how we as two apartment dwellers (somewhere between urban and suburban) that are quasi-homesteaders, can become more self-sufficient.
We are hopefully going to finish up the planning part this weekend, where myself as the typical Aquarius will come up with some flighty ideas, and him the typical Aries will come up with realistic ways to make those ideas come to fruition.
In 2008 I have come across more awesome resources for homesteaders, which I have added to my own personal list. Here are my favourite 2008 discoveries (in alphabetical order):
Cold Antler Farm
Little City Farm
Poor Richard's Alamanac
Path to Freedom
Pockets of the Future
Alive and Fit
Made from Scratch by Jenna Woginrich
The Complete Homesteading Book by David Robinson

Well, I am off to get another cup of coffee and do some more daydreaming.
All the best for you folks in 2009~
