I just had to share with you my story of good fortune from Friday. With the snow not far away, I decided to head to the hardware store to purchase some necessary supplies to hold me off through winter, that and new knobs for the dresser I am working on. All pictures are from my outing on Friday, hope you enjoy what looks to be the last of our autumn colors. I love not having a car, I see so much I would normally miss or have to view from a distance if I were driving.

It is time to give you an update on life car-free and refrigerator-free.
Car-free living has been surprisingly smooth for for me even though the last time I was car-free I was 17 years old. There is much I forgot in the 33 years since I was last without a car.
Today was our first gorgeous spring day with temperatures in the mid 40s and nothing but sun!! I have been waiting for this for so long I couldn’t wait to get out and explore my town.
As I look around my home today I know I want to make a few changes to streamline a few areas of my home. While I don’t want my home to lose the feeling of comfort I don’t like clutter. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want my place to look like the home of a monk just a little more pulled together.
