There are power lines down the hill from our house, they actually cut across the very front corner of our property. We can’t see the lines because we’re up a hill and about a third of a mile away. You don’t even notice they are there, until they start doing work. The local power company is adding new lines, so there have been loads of trucks, lots of noise and recently, lots of helicopters! It’s been fascinating to watch. Every now and then, when I’m washing dishes, I’ll see a helicopter come up over the trees carrying a few guys dangling from a long rope.

One day I went down to grab a few photos. What a job and what a commute.

Anything crazy going on around your neighborhood this week?

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.
