  • Harvest something: harvest, forage, glean, or bring to fruition
  • Preserve something: food, local community resources
  • Waste Not: reduce waste, reuse, salvage & repair, give away
  • Keep Stocked Up: with food and emergency supplies, financial resources, and experiences that make life worth living

I finished The Last Devil to Die (Richard Osmon), which I very much enjoyed. We watched a couple of Agatha Christie Hercule Poirot/Ariadne Oliver dvds this week –> The Halloween Party and Elephants Can Remember. They’re my comfort viewing. I’m also now reading some Christie short stories in a book I bought at a local bookstore a few weeks ago.

  • Be Neighbourly: contribute to community support systems, look for ways to help neighbours and others
  • Skill up: learn new things, especially skills or knowledge that remind us of our place in the natural world and within the social fabric

  • Tend & Maintain: maintain our bodies, minds, and relationships to keep us resilient; and do what’s needed in the house, yard, and elsewhere to prevent failure/breaking/hassle down the line
  • Winter is coming: notice Earth’s seasons and our own seasons of life and daily rhythms, and look ahead to what’s needed now to make life better in the future
