Two of My Most Favorite Smoothies


Howdy all!

I am soooo behind with my blogging - or I should say with my real blog blogging, because I am actually not totally idle and mute and I did not cut off the sharing of our daily life in the woods with our huskies and pursuing of our wilderness homesteading dream!

As a matter of fact, I´ve been (what I call) "mini" blogging a lot on my Facebook page and sharing tons of pictures on Instagram. You should really check both of these hubs out, because I have some real nice pictures there and also some info on Herbs for Dogs and some natural nutrition and health care advice, etc. 

Anyhow, today I´ve decided to share something healthy, holistic and totally delicious for the humans  - two of my most favorite smoothies :)

Warming And Immunity Boosting Herbal Blend For Dogs

I love making my own herbal blends for my dogs, cats, and for us as well.

I totally love the fact that I am able to pick or grow many of the plants myself, on the meadows and in the woods right here, around our homestead, and know they are truly "organic", growing in unpolluted nature in the best imaginable conditions.

Top10 Most Read 2014 Blog Posts

Howdy all!
In my neck of the woods, we have 1 hour and 3 minutes till the end of the year and I decided to share the TOP 10 MOST POPULAR POSTS from Katerina´s Journal Blog - that means the ten most read by You and those You found most interesting this year.

I have to say that I got totally inspired by friend Lisa at Fresh Eggs Daily, who posted top ten blog posts from her blog about natural raising of chickens and ducks. If you own a flock yourself, or have a little (or big farm) with all kinds of animals, you should head over there, it´s a great information source!

Beautiful DIY Decorations That Won't Cost You A Dime

I love Christmas, decorating, natural materials and rustic look of my decor creations, as it perfectly fits the wilderness set up of our homestead.

Being able to be creative with the use of mostly natural materials, without spending too much money and yet create something beautiful gives me a big satisfaction.

These cardboard stars I came up with just before Christmas this year can be used for your planned New Year´s party, but also any other occasion in or outdoors.

Home Made Eggnog, Anyone?

I´ve shared this step by step, easy recipe for a superb eggnog last year.

It is my family´s traditional recipe and I am glad to continue in those traditions of making this eggnog every year for Christmas.

It is SO much BETTER than the store bought one, with all the egg yolks and heavy whipping cream and raw sugar whisked to a creamy consistence, flavored with fresh ground vanilla.

Santa's Little Helpers

So, I went to the forest yesterday, to look for some firs to do more decorating around the house. 

And look whom I met, kids! If you don´t believe in Santa Claus, here is your proof: I met a Christmas Elf and some little helpers! :)

Ok, the story went a little bit more like this:

Herbal Supplement Mix For Puppies


Just a few days ago I was re-filling the herbal supplement mix for the puppies and I´ve decided to share it on the blog since I was already in the process of mixing the herbs.

As some of you know, I am a big fan of herbs for animals and humans alike, be it for their nutritional values or medicinal properties.

The Supernatural Litter - They Are A Wild Bunch

Friend of mine pointed out today that I haven´t actually introduced the youngest members of the Kipp d´Amundsen pack yet.

And she was totally right, so here it comes, sorry for the delay folks, I´ve been busy raising these wild little monkeys! :)

So let me officially introduce you to the SUPERNATURAL LITTER :)

Puppy Walk Under The Setting Sun

The days are getting shorter and shorter every day now, until the Winter Solstice, which is only 10 days away! 
I can´t believe how fast the darkest time of the year went by this year, so I better spend as much time outside with the dogs and have my camera ready. Because this time of darkness and crimson sunrises late in the morning, followed by a super low sun peaking over the southern horizon around noon on the clearest days is simply magical.

Peak Into The Feeding Time

I have been promising to show pictures from one of the feeding times for so long.

Bu
t you see, I had a serious reason why it took me so long. It was simply too long and difficult a process to bring a camera to the kennel, shoot pictures while preparing the food, then carry the food to the kennels and carefully bring the camera along, then take pictures of the feeding process..... you get the idea.

Puppy Sleeping Posititons

If you ever wondered how many times can a puppy change their sleeping position within one hour, here is a series I managed to take of little Ruby while she fell asleep on the coach the other day.

I´ve been around dogs basically all my life, but I must admit, I had no idea about some of the sleeping positions being even possible. One is learning all the time! :)

Christmas Wreath

I just got this Christmas wreath from my Mom and immediately hung it on our front door. Don´t you think it´s stunning?

My mom is kind hearted and crazy enough to send me a big wreath like this all the way from Czech Republic to northern Sweden. That is over 2000km across the European continent!

My mom is incredibly talented for any type of decorations and handcrafts, using natural materials

We're On Instagram!


Yup, Katerina's Journal blog is now also on Instagram :)

Don´t miss it, because the blog simply doesn´t fit all the pictures I take to document my daily life in the nordic woods with the huskies, the cats, our wildlife neighbors, the stunning nature that I am lucky to call my neighborhood, but also all the recipes for the two and four legged ones,
