Busy, Busy, Busy

December 28th, 2015

Even though we are busy around the holidays, we have a few traditions we maintain. Cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Christmas morning, opening gifts on Christmas Eve. We go on a hike on Christmas day, this year we walked one of the property lines and went back to the wetlands in the back of the property. Did you know we have one of the headwaters to a river here in Maine and have our very own bridge?

One of our traditions is that we always try to watch as many James Bond movies between Christmas and New Years as we can. It helps us take time to relax, otherwise we often end up doing chores and working. This year we decided to start at the beginning and watch them on chronological order. So far we’ve managed to get in four movies.

What traditions do you maintain around the holidays?

    Very nice! I would love to have a headwater to a river on my property! But, I’ve got a pond, so that’s ok. :) Happy Holidays!

    I have a puddle in the basement when it rains at our rental does that count? Hopefully someday we will get to see that stream and bridge!

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.
