While in college I picked this little paperback called How to Live on Nothing by Joan Ranson Shortney. It was the 70's and the cover photo was two hippie parents and their barefoot children in the woods, probably foraging for edibles. Little did I realize that little book started me on a life-long dream of someday living self-sufficiently in my own little cabin in the woods. In the late 90's I came "this" close to actually doing it but fate had other plans. Now, 12 years later, I find myself unemployed with absolutely zero desire to find another mind-numbing job in my field of 27 years. I'm in transition at this point in time; doing alot of meditating, praying, soul-searching to unearth what it is I'm supposed to do when I grow up. Wish me luck. :-)
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Homemade spaghetti sauce with whole wheat pasta, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, home baked Italian bread and salad fixings from a friend's garden. (This was last summer; I don't cook much.)
Choosing Simplicity by Linda Breen Pierce
Currently listening to:
God and trying to hear what He has to say. I told Him to make sure it was a "brick up side the head" revelation because subtlety is totally lost on me.
My latest DIY project:
Weather-proofing the drafty doors and windows in my apartment.
