100+ Hour Project: Spartan Racing

Happy New Year!

2018 was our first year running Renegade Housewife. It has been a wonderful year, meeting new people and proving that a blog with topics as wide as this one still has a home in the world out there.

Writing experiment: Did Writing Down The Bones Help My Story?

Book Review: Writing Down the Bones I both loved and hated this book. I loved the simple writing, the personal tone the author struck, and the short chapters you could skip around without too much worry of losing your place. I hated the strong poetry slant that made me feel if I wasn’t slavering and Read More

Full moon experiment: Does moon phase planting work?

Gardening by moon phase has been passed down from generation to generation for so long, no one actually knows how long it has been in existence.
