Henry David Thoreau said “Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit and resign yourself to the influences of each.”
I wanted to live that simple life where the constant running and chasing “the dream” could be forgotten. Life isn’t perfect, but it’s mine. I live outside the city limits in a 1910 farmhouse on a triple suburban lot where I am working to convert the grounds into an edible paradise where the grandchildren, and I, can snack as they play and slowly eliminate the need to buy trucked in food from the grocery store.
While I had downsized my belongings enough to live comfortably in a 300 square foot studio apartment, renting wasn’t ideal. The life style of a minimalist was one that fit so while I increased my square footage minimalism continues to make me happy.
Here I will share not only the transformation of the property and house but all the little things that make life interesting and, well….comfortable.
Grab a cup of coffee or tea and visit with me, won’t you?
