What Are You Learning to Make You Harder to Kill?

A stage of life for my family has us living in an apartment for a while. After being in a home for many years, it’s quite a change. It was a strategic move that we made for several reasons. Because of this new locale, our new family study topic is Urban Homesteading. It’s easy to homestead if you own some land in the country, but trying to do it in a city while based out of an apartment is an exercise in flexibility.

And we’re enjoying every bit of it!

The book we’ve been reading lately is The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Urban Homesteading. It’s actually a really good book, especially for beginners.

What about you? What’s your current topic of choice that you’re devoting learning time to? If you say, “Nothing”, then you’re wrong. You better find something new to learn or some skill to get better at. Rust isn’t very becoming.
