Good to hear from you!! We've been cranking out kombucha and sourdough, starting new little worm bins, drinking fermented apple cider, hanging laundry to dry on a rack inside so we don't use the natural gas dryer, making chicken stock, sewing, soaking oats in kombucha-water, and blogging. Our cold water pipe in the kitchen froze night before last but thawed out OK next day.

Your book selection sounds really interesting. Jonathan Livingston Seagul is a nice little book, but I enjoyed his Illusions a lot more. Celestine Prophecies, I love and I'm surprised you haven't already read. The Ninth and Tenth Insights (sequels) are really great as well.

I seriously want to live near you and eat and drink all of your wonderful creations. :) Sounds yummy!
