Yesterday was a soggy day here in Maine.  No garden work was done, the chickens & pigs barely got fed between the rain storms.  My day was spent working in indoors, canning tomato soup, making an apple crisp, cleaning, working in the office.  It’s nice to have some time indoors, my house can get a bit untidy when we have weeks without rain.  Sometimes, however, I need to take a cue from Dexter and just spend some time relaxing.  This cat has the relaxing thing down pat.

That’s what I did last night, I spent an hour reading instead of writing an in depth blog post – hope you don’t mind. I figured the pictures of Dexter would make up for it – he’s one cute cat!

Do you find yourself putting off inside chores when it’s nice outside?

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.
