Pomegranate Soda

This year for Christmas we got a DrinkMate Sparkling Water and Soda Maker. Our children like soda, but we don’t really want them to have all that extra sugar. With this soda maker we can make our own soda and control the amount of sugar. This particular machine can carbonate any drink. What you make is limited only by your imagination.

Moving Day for The Geek Homestead

Today was our virtual moving day to our new host and boy, was it a nerve-wracking one! But we made it over here mostly in one piece. I’m pretty sure I also took the long way around a few times.

The prior owners had a bird feeder and a platform for a quail block. This week I finally put food there to see if we could attract any birds.
