2018 Calendar

October 26th, 2017

Since it was raining cats and dogs yesterday, I decided to finalize my 2018 calendar. It’s always difficult to choose which photos to use for each month, I often try to pick ones that evoke the feeling of the month. Generally, they are actually taken during that month, though some months are difficult to find photos for, like February. Often February looks just like January, though this year the February photo is of my lime tree blooming, which happens in February.

Thanks to all of you who purchase a calendar, I make about $5 from each one and these funds go towards covering my hosting fees and other fees associated with this blog. Purchased calendars and clicking through my Amazon affiliate link helps me cover the blog costs and it keeps this blog ad free! Head on over to to purchase a 2018 Chiot’s Run calendar (don’t forget, these make great gifts). You may be able to find coupons on Lulu’s facebook page as well.

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.
