W is for ______________

August 27th, 2011

WORKAHOLIC – Since Mr Chiots and I are self-employed we work all the time. We work pretty much from the time we get up in the morning until we go to bed at night. We don’t take a lot of time off. Hopefully we’re reaching the point in our business that we’ll be able to take more time off.

WIFE – Mr Chiots and I have been married for 13 years. I think when you’re married it definitely becomes a big part of who you are.

WOOLEN – I love natural fibers, especially wool. You’ll find that most of my socks are wool as are all of my sweaters and many of my sweatshirts. I have wool blankets on my bed and throws on the couch.

WESTON A PRICE – After reading Nutrition and Physical Degeneration and it made a profound difference in the way we eat. We now try to follow the parameters set up in Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats. If you’ve never read either of these books I’d highly recommend them.

WALKING – I love to walk and often wished I lived a little closer to town so I could walk in to the post office and the library. A short stroll in the evening is the perfect way to end the day in my book.

What words/phrases describe you that start with a W?

    I have read bits and parts of Nourishing Traditions. I keep an eye out for a copy at the discount bookstore. One of these days I will just breakdown and buy a copy. I also check it out at the library.

    My W’s were:water bottle (w/me always), wind chimes (love the sounds), and water lilies(just starting a water garden. Emily

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
