Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

Appreciating the shelter of our little place in Vermont. Only the voting booth in CT will lure me back on Tuesday.

On the list for eventual improvements up here...
-a hand pump in the mudroom
-an outhouse/composting toilet
-rehabbing the root cellar
-possible solar panels
Self reliance and preparedness have become more important to us in the last year or so. How about you?


  1. All sounds practical to me. Keep safe xxx

  2. Nice to think of you at your bit of earth. We, too, are thinking about ways to improve our century old home to keep on despite the weather. I'll be interested in hearing how you're managing. In the meantime, sending good wishes that your CT situation improves soon.

  3. So glad that you are in your favorite place, Karen.
    Hope your power comes back in CT soon - meanwhile, enjoy your bit of earth!

  4. Hope your vote and those of your fellow americans will be a GOOD vote.
