Taking a Bit of a Breather

October 21st, 2011

The last couple weeks have been a bit crazy around here, with the new job at Ethel and all. I’m still trying to figure out what to drop in order to fit in the extra hours I need for that. As a result I’ve been up early working and staying up later than I should.

Sadly, my reading chair is feeling a little lonely (so it Dexter). So I took the evening off from blogging last night and spent some time reading Onward & Upward in the Garden by Katherine S. White. As a gardener, she writes wonderfully about her garden, gardening books, seed catalogs and all kinds of plants in this compilation of essays she wrote over the course of 12 years for the New Yorker. I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

Are you still busy with gardening & preserving, or are things starting to slow down for you?

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.
