A Week Off

August 20th, 2018

Sorry for not blogging last week, I had grand intentions of writing posts ahead of time to post while I was in Ohio. Preparations to be away got the best of me and I didn’t end up having time to write the posts ahead of time. We drove to Ohio last Monday and spent the week visiting with family. My brother drove up from Georgia and my dad had just arrived back in the US from South America. Since my sister lives close to my dad’s Ohio home, she was already there. Here we are at Brandywine Falls in Cuyahoga National Park.

We went to the art museum, we went to gardens, we went out to eat, we laughed, we had a great time catching up. Then we had the privilege of attending the wedding of a dear friend on Saturday. All-in-all, a great week, albeit tiring.

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.
