[Readers Update] Herds are loving their fall pastures, tiny home getting close, editing (and inspiration) continues...

Raising cows, building a home, and writing books - all in the continuing saga of an evolving life...


Thanks for reading this. 

And if you got this in your email and don't feel you need these anymore, please unsubscribe below. 

  • Bulls/steers are in one pasture, while the main herd enjoys the "bottom pasture".
  • Tiny home progress now continue - and it's an evolution of serendipitous choices.
  • A new mini-course of videos is in the offing, plus its ebook..

Farm News

Four bulls/steers are at the home place, while the big herd has the "bottom". Everyone seems to be enjoying their new grass.

Here, two of our growing calves are meeting with our (reddish) farm dog, Wilma. She's not concerned, but out there to keep me company.

You can see how high this has grown all year. So they have plenty to pick and choose from.

This gives me more walking these days, as they could be anywhere in these many acres. One reason I like to have black-and-white cattle - they can't easily camouflage as shadows among the dark tree trunks.

Tiny Home Progress

Had to build a set of stairs for loft access instead of a ladder. For both comfort and safety. 

If you've ever gotten up in the middle of the night, and tried getting down a ladder from a loft - well, you know that bare feet need more support than narrow ladder rungs. And in that dark,  one misstep could mean a nasty fall. So I've put a nice railing on it. And we generally like going down backwards, but enjoy the security of these steep steps.

I put a special extension of the railing across the top of the loft to make that turn. (And yes, all that raw wood still needs painting.)

There's a big screen TV (just under three foot wide) which will mostly fill the rest of that gap across the loft front. On a swivel so we can watch movies from below if we want to.

Building that stairs gave me an inspiration to put the refrigerator under the loft on that side, so it's out of the way and gives more "culinary creation" room. And the under-stairs area will get shelves and probably wind up as a pantry. (That's bright setting sunlight across the front of that fridge.)

Just a few weeks more, and we should be moved in - adjusting things to fit our needs more closely.

Editing fills my "idle" moments

The "How to Change Your Life Compleat" has produced it's first mini-course.Called "How to Be Happy",  it's a set of 10 lectures that explain the basics of why happiness is serendipitous and found while you're busy accomplishing your bliss and goals. All now converted to video, which I hope to have in the Insiders Club soon. Meanwhile, I've worked to get the ebook preview up there (and yes, it's free in PDF format.)

I'd also suggest you get your own (free) copy of that "Compleat" book from the Insider's Club while you wait for the 2nd Edition to be released, hopefully in December. This is a golden ship which can help you sail your life into ever-clearing waters.

What's Ahead?

Summer fruit

Found a tree full of wild pears. So I picked a bucket full. At their biggest, they might get up to golf ball size. Like their cultivated cousins, they ripen after they are picked. And make great pear butter.

Persimmons and apples are next - but those will be in the late fall.

The walnuts and hickories had few nuts this year, and the squirrels beat me to them.

The only other "fruit" I can think of harvesting this late in the year are rose hips, which make great tea. 

Oh - wait, there's more: Recent life-test results continue to confirm all I've been telling (some of) you for years - you can actually get/attain/acquire anything and everything you want out of life. Really. Whether it's finding a dear companion or a million-dollar salary. And it's all in that "Strangest Secret Collection" (my characters named it the "decoder ring"). You only have to take the leap of faith and test it for yourself...

(Again, to get your updated copy, just reply to this and ask - I'll send you the most recent edition if you don't have yours or misplaced it.) As well, I do need to get some courses up, so I'll start working these in once I get all the major non-fiction books republished.

Become a First Reader

First readers have now become collaborators. And get the first inklings of a story before anyone else except me. (They also get immediate notification and pictures of new calves.) Our interactions are what result in the Notes editions for each book. It's simple to become one - just raise your hand.

How to Raise Your Hand: Join the no-cost Insider's Club and then send me an email that you have. Tell me what you bring to the table. If you make a good case, I'll include you on my First Reader Emails.

Expect great things over the next year - and continuing...

Yes, a huge number of books are available in that Insiders Club. I don't think that most of you have most of these books - and so I keep this in every week to remind you that some of these stories would really appreciate your reading them.

Thanks again for opening this. And reading these books.

And leaving a rating on the Living Sensical site for the stuff you buy there.

As well as leaving recommendations on Bookbub in addition to reviews anywhere else.

You know, that "paying it forward" kinda thing.

Do keep sharing these books with your friends, too.

I hope your life is not too interesting to be overwhelming, but sufficiently engaging to keep you amused. (Like some of us here...)



PS. Again, you can always email me about anything.

What you're here for is to enjoy life. If you're not enjoying every single moment, then you're working too hard at living. Relax. Let go. Follow your bliss.
