Some Days…

October 11th, 2012

Some days….

you wake up with a headache and overcook the eggs
and the dog is sick from eating chicken food
it’s a rainy dreary day so you can’t get outside
then you remember there’s laundry on the line

Some days we simply focus on the wrong things.

Because on those same days…

you have a warm and toasty house
with warm wooly socks to wear and fluffy cats to pet
and a honey that brings you ginger tea
delicious locally made sausage and braised cabbage for dinner
along with a few new books on the coffee table to read after it gets dark

Some days it’s not about what happens, but about what you see.

What wonderfully simple things are overshadowing your hardships this week?

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.
