My transition from cluttered to simple living.

Life is Getting Smaller!

(Which is, after all, what we asked for!)

It is slowly sinking in that we have only one piece of property to care mortgage to meet.  I am finding that I don't have that "oh I should be packing" or "oh, I should be over there" kind of feeling anymore.  Sure...we have a garage full of boxes to sort, but we can now do it on our own time.  My activities are now governed by the weather.  When the weather is inclement, I knit or sew.  When the sun is shining, I busy myself in my garden. 

In spite of being insanely busy this year, I managed to plant peppers, ornamental corn, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, kale, desert pumpkins, and watermelon.  everything has come up, but the rest is in the hands of Mother nature.  The weeds took advantage of my absence. and are testing my patience, however, my garden is my summer hobby.

I am harvesting the last of the Rhubarb.  I have made Chive Vinegar.

Life is good!



  1. Yes, from your description, I agree that life is good! Here, too, it's beginning to feel a bit like summer! A couple of days in the seventies and we are beginning to believe here in the PNW.

    Smaller really IS better! :-)

  2. Sounds like your garden is doing wonderful. Glad life is slowing down for you.


  3. Sounds wonderful Wendy. Enjoy every second.
