Happy Monday to you all! This is by far my most creative day of the week. I take weekends off from writing, so by Monday my brain is overflowing with ideas. Let’s get started so I can relieve some of the cranial pressure.
The name of this blog is The Art of Living Simple, and that’s exactly how we spent our weekend.
On Saturday we went shopping for seeds and a couple grape bare root cuttings. Then we came home and prepared the soil, dug some holes, and got everything into the ground.
Sunday began with a movie, and then we came home and built a bamboo grape arbor and put up another greenhouse. All were simple designs and were made from materials we had at home already. Nothing fancy but all highly functional.
This is my life. Simple? I’m sure it would appear to be for many people. Boring? I’m sure for some this appears to be a real yawner. For Bev and I, though, our lives are complete and so very satisfying. We work in the soil. We establish friendships. We continue to build and support our community, and we continue to feed off of our love for each other.
The art of living simple…..it really is an art form, and it gets better as we practice it. We began as novices. We are now journeymen. In time we just might become master craftsmen. J
Have a great week!
