Living the Life!

I don’t think Samson cares if summer ever comes, he’s loving the warmth of the wood burner!

    What a cutie!

    I lit a little biscuit wood fire this morning – one of the last fires for the season I’m hoping!

    I had a nice fire last night as, hopefully, the last blast of winter was happening. The cats and dogs enjoyed the penetrating warmth that only a wood fire can give.

    Sampson looks like a king! That looks just like our cat this winter. I wonder how comfortable they are when they sleep in that position? Numerous times we’ve found our Sandwich stretched out in front of the fire as if she had been run over. Frankly we’ve felt compelled to check if she was still breathing. :)

    Susy, no fires here. Yesterday was a high of 77. Very nice then came last not night with a low of 24. Potatoes were planted yesterday so the garden planting season has indeed started here. Soil temperatures vary from 50 to 55 during the day to 40 at night. I’ve been waiting for some one to fire up the outside firepit. When the temperatures are around 50 to 55, then the neighborhood will be filled with firepit smell. I really must work on getting my firepit area completed. I didn’t really have allot of time to work on it last year. Maybe this year will be a higher priority for it.

    Enjoy the last warm by the stove days.

    Is Sampson one of the cats that traveled from Ohio in Thundershirts?

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.
