A Year Ago Today…

January 21st, 2012

A year ago today I had tiny little onions in the basement seed starting area, this year I have nothing started yet. Celery seeds had also been started, none of those have been planted either this year.

Outside, it was a beautiful sunny day, I spotted a bluebird at my heated birdbath for the first time of the season.

On my blog I was talking about my love of flannel sheets since I has just gotten a new set.

This is one of the reasons I blog, it encourages me to take photos and keep a record of my life. I enjoy looking back every now and then to see what I was doing on this day a year ago.

Have you ever kept a journal, or do you keep one now?

Reading & Watching

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.
