My name is Sheila. I live in a small town outside Asheville, North Carolina. I have 2 boys that I homeschool using Waldorf-inspired methods. I like to read, cook, sew and hang clothes on my clothesline. I wish I liked to garden, but I don’t. I love talking to my farmer-neighbors who pepper a conversation with gems like “pettish” (meaning: spoiled); “Who’s the daddy rabbit?” (meaning: Who is in charge?) and detailed directions about building a head gate for cattle (meaning: I have no idea!). You’ll probably hear a lot about the boys and a lot about my neighbors in this space. Both are usually good for a great story. Both teach me a lot about how I want to live and what is really important.
Someone once asked me to write a 6 word memoir. I got it down to 7: “Living a book I want to write.” So here I’ve started writing about the living. We’ll see what the next chapter holds. I usually post twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays. Fridays are reserved for a visual journal of sorts that captures particular moments of the week that I want to remember. If you are curious about the name of the blog and want to know a little more about why I started it, read this post. If you want to know more about how I choose what to write about in this space, read this post. Thanks for stopping by. I’m so glad you’re here.
