<August 3/13> I’ve been doing this sort of nomad gig for several years now. House-sits, short & sometimes long-ish. This & that, here & there. It’s an unusual life – a good one, in many ways. I’ve gotten pretty good at it!
There is lots of stuff I really haven’t cared about not owning anymore – e.g. my own house, my own furniture.
The thing I miss the most is my book collection. I do love my books! (mostly boxed up in a friend’s basement, at the moment.)
Here’s what I tend to haul with me wherever I go. These are the things I always need:
- Pressure cooker (for cooking up chickpeas)
- Steamer pot (my favourite pot ever!)
- Clotheshorse (I hate using a dryer )
- Large cookie sheet (granola-baking)
- Books (but never nearly enough of them )
- Notebooks & pens (duh)
& wherever I go, the most essential things are already there:
- Friends / people
Off I go!
