The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Goat farewell

Walking goats

Although I was sad to see Aurora and Edgar go, I think their new home on Goat Hill is bound to be an exciting chapter in both of their lives. For me, the trickiest part is going to be working a new pro-lethargy activity into my evening routine. Maybe a photography hour or a round of potting up plants can fill a similar niche?

Hi Anna and Mark, I've been away from my computer for a few weeks and didn't know until now that you are planning on moving. WOW! that's big. What area are you planning on moving to? Abingdon? You are brave. Monica

Monica --- We're heading to Ohio, closer to Mark's mom. It is definitely a terrifying proposition for me, pulling up the roots I've sunk so deep. But I think it's the right decision for our future and I'm excited by the idea of a new adventure!
