Working Hard

Dexter is our workhorse cat around here. While the other two indoor cats sleep peacefully on the sofa, Dexter makes sure no rodent that enters the house leaves again. Here he is with his trophy catch last week.

Do you ever get mice in your house?

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.
