I just wanted to say that thanks to you, I'm now only capable of drinking lemonade when it's homemade, and even then, only out of a mason jar.

And I wouldn't have it any other way.

I wake up to something very similar -- my four year old German shepherd. I cannot imagine a more polite dog than he is, having dogs all my life. His name is Franz, but I usually call him Mr. Franz. I just can't figure out how he got this way. Lucky me!

Waking up to a face you love is always a blessing. Some mornings with my little puppy Pollyanna (pug/chihuahua mix)who sleeps up between the pillows, i wake up facing the other end! The other two dogs sleep between my husband and i. He is a very tollerant man!

What a wolfish smile. You can tell that that is one happy dog.

Your book was recommended to me by a good friend of mine who recently eloped and moved to Maine, off the grid and is homesteading herself. I'm still on the grid and living with my parents but I got so much out of your book and am recommending it to everyone. I was super excited when I read the chapter "Old Stuff" because I am currently a senior at Kutztown University! And I love Renninger's! I was wondering if you had ever been to Lizzy's when you were antiquing in college? It is a grouping of barns filled with a ton of shit. Lizzy is an old Mennonite women who pop's out of her kitchen window when you walk into her yard to see if you need help looking for anything. She knows where everything is, its crazy. There is even a section of children's underwear that has been clearly been rained on through the roof.

Wanted to say Hi. Just finished reading your book. Loved it. Oh, to be in my 20s and seemingly fearless. Found your blog this morning and was surprised to see that you had left Idaho. Did you pick an instrument to learn while you live in Vermont?

Kate, I have German Shepherds too - they're just that way. Lucky US! I wake up to my 6 month old boy's muzzle in the back of my neck.

Bed dogs are the greatest!

looks enjoyable! I wake up to a cat screaming in my face. They are pretty picky about when you feed them.

Pets are wonderful aren't they? We sleep with a Shih Tzu and a cat. I'm glad we have a king size bed.

Apropos to nothing, just wanted to mention that I've been reading your blog for a while now and then saw your book the other day at the Amherst Farmers' Supply store here in Western Mass. Very fun!

Happy spring!

I just love your dogs, they make me miss mine.
I just read your article in Mother Earth News and loved it. I have found my own happiness and am dancing with it. Thanks for the inspiration!
Can't wait to check out your book.

I love this picture! Malamutes, right? I wake up to an Angora-Coon cat purring in my ear.
