About me

Location Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Introduction Learning to live lightly in a small house on a small lot in the middle of lovely Hamilton. Homeschooling two amazing children. Asking a lot of questions. Re-learning to play. Less plastic, more fun. Sustainability. Oh, and a LOT of crafting. I'm always interested in creative, beautiful, economical and sustainable ways to fill everyday needs. My favourite medium is fulled wool sweaters, my favourite topics are sustainable living and anything having to do with good food, and my favourite phrase seems to be "You know, I've been thinking..." (with apologies to Dickens for the title)
Interests straw bale building, unschooling, making things by hand, sustainable simple living, and food - lots of food (especially dessert)!
Favorite Movies The Double Life of Veronique
Favorite Music Whatever my kids are listening to....
Favorite Books Anything by Ursula Le Guin, The Lord of the Rings (J.R.R. Tolkien), A Pattern Language (Christopher Alexander), The Auberge of the Flowering Hearth (Roy Andries de Groot)
