I like this idea to put a few things out there to strive for besides just surviving the humid hot. There is a note in my garden journal about pulling tomatoes off plants into November with no killing frost. The same garden journal just received a soaking, left out when I failed to do that one last sweep. Of course the important things get looked after. The garden is filled to capacity for the first time since its creation in 2009. Two babies later, I am finally sleeping enough to feel like hauling compost and mulch.

We just survived our first camping trip:) And we want to go back! I have lots of experience if you need help with anything- where to go, how to make do, etc.

Maybe next time we camp, we can do it at the beach. It seems so far away, but is not really.

Miss you, Meredith. Thanks for sharing your inspirations. I'd love it if you came over sometime to let the kids play in the splash pool together. We are just up from Mint Springs too and are hoping to go this thursday am.

What I'm Reading

  • Barry Chevannes: Rastafari: Roots and Ideology (Utopianism and Communitarianism)

    Barry Chevannes: Rastafari: Roots and Ideology (Utopianism and Communitarianism)
    Been working on this one since my spring sojourn in the Caribbean. Though it's certainly interesting, I'm reading it with pencil in hand to underline and make notes in the margins. I may have to return to Little Seal before I have time for such concentrated study again.

  • Jane Goodall: Harvest for Hope: A Guide to Mindful Eating

    Jane Goodall: Harvest for Hope: A Guide to Mindful Eating
    My brother read excerpts of this book aloud to me as we drove to Maine this summer. I'm working on the whole thing now. Goodall brings an interesting perspective to the local and whole foods discussions, and she uses funny acronyms like "FOJ" (friends of Jane).

  • Mike Fay: Last Place on Earth (National Geographic)

    Mike Fay: Last Place on Earth (National Geographic)
    Nick Nichols and Mike Fay undertook an incredible task as they traversed the Congo and Gabon. Now that I'm working for Nick, I'm getting pretty intimate with the contents of this book. From a totally unbiased position (!), let me say that the photographs are stunning and the changes they inspired in West Africa are truly remarkable.

  • Greg Mortenson: Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time

    Greg Mortenson: Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time
    I am only a few chapters in to this true story of an American climber whose failed summit of K2 leads to a life dedicated to giving back to Pakistan. At least that is what I think it's about... Very excited to meet Greg Mortenson when he comes to speak at Village School this month!

  • Gabriel Garcia Marquez: Love in the Time of Cholera (Vintage International)

    Gabriel Garcia Marquez: Love in the Time of Cholera (Vintage International)
    Picked this one off the bedside table at my aunt's house on Vinalhaven Island. I'm early in the chapters and am already thinking that love is a frightening thing. Deliciously frightening, I think. Wish I could read the book in Spanish.

  • Sara Gruen: Water for Elephants: A Novel

    Sara Gruen: Water for Elephants: A Novel
    This captivating novel about train-traveling circus folk somehow complements my own current existence, as I swoosh across Japan and marvel at this foreign world. I mean, there are no elephants, freaks, or hobos around here. But somehow Asia feels like the perfect place to read a magical love story about another world to which I'm an outsider.
