Plain and Joyful Living

Oh, this book is going on my wish list - thank you for sharing. We lived with six children with no electricity for over two years so it would be wonderful to read about another family's adventures.


loving the sound of that book, will have to see if I can find it
great knitting, heres to keeping going with the christmas projects


Good for you ripping back and making it right. Sometimes that's so hard when pressed to forge on ahead.
Thanks for mentioning the book. I'd heard about it when it first came out then forgot about it. Do they live totally with electricity of any sort? Having lived 4 years without radio/tv/phone I love the sound of silence, we heated with wood and cooked on a propane stove but I admit to shuddering at the thought of washing clothes by hand.


Glad you're making good progress on those great gift plans - I'm not doing too badly with mine either - planning very few knits this year which helps!


I disconnected for six months and I went from being a reader to a TV addict. Well, I was disconnected from all electricity. It's not that much fun to heat bath water every day! (we did have a propane tank though.)

I'll have to check out the Techknitter's short rows, I just learned the German Short row method and it was fabulous.

The pictures of your kids around that tree are fabulous!

we've been without cable for about 3 1/2 yrs, no problem there. but no power? hmmm...maybe. the idea is intriguing :)
