Before HIBERNATION kicks in… [+Dutch podcast #01]

Before Hibernation kicks in… 

 

Seasons

Spring feels like suddenly jumping up and having a long run-up before taking a deep dive full of anticipation into the warm and wild summer days. Splashing around soaking up all its sunrays, running, jumping sheer joy and playfulness! Leaving us out of breath… fulfilled… reloaded and content as we let ourselves sink into the approaching coziness… fresh air, Falling leaves, raindrops on our window glass. The most amazing colors and we are ready to let go, dive inwards and feel hugged and safe and loved by warm cozy blankets, hot chocolate, snowflakes touching our skin, flames dancing in the fireplace. Winter is our cocoon. And we hibernate. before the smell of spring wakes us up again and we jump up…

Before Hibernation

We make sure to enjoy the last warm sun rays, soaking it all up. We brought our warm vests and a picknick with us.
Jumping around and playing in the forest… and it reminded me at that time we went for a picknick a few months ago. We were standing at the start of the “outside” season, we didn’t know what summer would bring is, and now we look back at an amazing spring and summer and getting ready for the “cold and cozy” days. In the spring the whole forest looked different, smelt different, felt different to the touch as our feet touched the ground. This year it is the first time we are wearing barefoot shoes, and it has changed our walking experience forever. There is no going back from it. And running and jumping through the forest are done best on our Wilnding Shoes!

Next up: Winter

We are ready! Bring in the Frosty temperatures and warm sweaters!
In the meantime, we will be installing a new “Green” woodstove in our home to keep warm, and maybe do a bit of a home renovation to our groundfloor this fall. We will keep you updated!

    We love Wildling shoes

     

     Wildling shoes geared our whole family up with their barefoot winter collection shoes and we are loving it! 

    The wonderful feeling of running and climbing barefoot through the forest while being safe against rough undergrounds and sharp objects is amazing! 

    Walking around barefoot or with barefoot schoe, wair doesn’t just feel great. It’s actually really healthy too! The reason why is very well explained here:
    1- In Duch by Linde Logtenberg on her Instagram here!
    2- or in this video by Teck Insider

    We want to thank our partner Wildling shoes  for supporting us and making it possible for us to keep producing our video’s, vlogs and blogs. It’s because of these kind partnerships we get to do what we love most:

    The lawn is being taken care of with our brand new Hover mower we got send over from BLACK+DECKER and it’s awesome!

    Getting a greener home

    Energy friendly home
    Living in a small home of only 50 square meters (=538 square feet) is one of the choices we’ve made to be more sustainable as a family. But because this is a home build in 1952, the Insolation was not what we wanted it to be. So in the last couple of years, we made some big steps in improving the insolation of our home.

    For instance, we got double glazing in our windows in 2014, we insolated the roof back in 2017 (watch this dutch vlog from back then), and Insolated the crawling space under our home in 2018 (see this Englisch vlog), and we have LED lighting in our home.

    This whole process is really expensive so we are taking one step at the time and every single change is taking us a little bit closer to our eco-friendly home dream.

    Next steps we hope to take very soon:
    -Insolating the double brick outside walls.
    -Energy management system to track how much we use.
    -Solar panels.
    -Floor insolation.
    -Heat pump hybrid system. (And Floor heating to make it more effective)

    Because we are just a bunch of hippies on an eco-friendly mission Eneco asked if we were interested in a collab with them. So we did! We visited another family who is a few steps ahead of us and already has a lot of the eco-friendly solutions we are dreaming of in their home! Oh my! We are loving it!

    And they had such a great family with two lovely little boys and a playful dog. We had a great time with them.
    We were invited to stay for dinner so we did! Tiny little bummer to see all those throw-away plastic take-out containers on the table, but I guess our eco-crazy hippie standard is next level for most people. And they were certainly more energy-friendly than us! We all do what we can. baby steps.  So we all enjoyed the food and the lovely company.

    Eneco made a lovely video of our visit! (Sorry, it’s only in dutch) You can check it out down here:

    We went back home feeling inspired! Hopefully some day in the near future we get to have that energy-green home we are dreaming of. Until then I’m just making it greener with all of my plants!

    Love,
      Jolanda, Michiel,
    Miley Haley & Quinn

    Oh, and p.s. Thanks for the levely flowers Eneco! So thoughtfull love it!
