Ten things you do when you don’t have internet.

1. Finally cook the delicious looking dishes you bookmarked in cookbooks a long time ago, but never got around to making before. Make sure you eat them off of vintage china.
2. Create your own sumptuous dishes from your own imagination and coax them into being over the course of many hours. Like a slow cooked, velvety rich stew of coconut broth braised lamb with sweet potato, garden tomatoes, and kale.
3. Read stacks of library books while things are cooking.
4. Give all the cats extra brushing and slip them double salmon treats twice in one day.
5. Visit your art supplies and get to know them again.
6. Take long naps while the sun is shining in your window and kitties snore on cushions nearby.
8. Make ginger spiced applesauce with organic apples.
9. Sit outside and chat with hummingbirds while you drink strong cups of smoky black tea.
10. Revisit your ipod and listen to music you haven’t heard in years because you can’t stream Pandora anymore.

I may have to add:
11. take long walks to balance out the sumptuous meals.

    I was just doing number 10 the other day… I forgot how much music I actually have. Miss ya ice weasel, glad you are settling into your fortress of kitties.

    I think I’m a bit envious of your new lifestyle, but I hope you won’t give up making jewelry. Your work is amazing and even though right now I’m in a severe financial drought, just looking at your etsy shop makes me smile. Ummm, do you think you’d like to share the coconut/lamb stew recipe? Makes my mouth water! Take good care, Rainy. ♥

      Thank you! The lamb stew recipe is the next blog post up from this one, titled “Toad stew” – don’t worry, no actual toad in the stew! And thank you so much for the kind words, I am still going to make jewelry for sure. 😀 May your financial drought soon give way to sweet wellsprings of all that you need to thrive!

    You don’t know of any cabins with acreage around you, do you? I think people need to unplug more, as you’re doing. Eat, Love, Laugh, and Live! Take care of that Baker’s Cyst, so you can walk off the wonderful meals you’re cooking!

    There you go. I KNEW it would be enriching! if we are to be our companions for a time, then we have to be all the more certain we are interesting to be around. We should be our own best company and it sounds like you are finding you are quite good company! 🙂 thus when we finally are with somebody else, we might have something more to offer them.
