Community is...

something I have been craving alot lately. Perhaps it is the gardener in me that no longer wants to weed alone. I am wanting to have a good hot cuppa with my knitting in my lap and discussing the ways of living a simple life with someone face to face. I think that as more and more people come to want a more sustainable lifestyle that having community is going to be of great value. It will be both a teaching tool and a place of fellowship. Somewhere you can exchange ideas on what grows best where, or how to harvest water without great expense. How to combine aquaculture and hydroponics ? So many ideas. Perhaps the idea isn't just to be someone that eats food grown locally, but someone that lives locally as well. I know that I can't be the only one out there that is thinking these thoughts. (right along with the one that says I need to replace my cord to download my camera) My mind races right along, and then hits the brick wall of to many possibilities and has to go take a nap.
Today I actually made great headway in putting my studio space together. With much help from the dogs I might add. I think I am going to be happy with the results if we stay where we are. Dear Husband was laid off Friday. Wish us luck.

Hope things are going well for you and hubby! I found you through the Homesteaders group on Ravelry. Every little thing you do to live locally helps.
