[Readers Update] Peak Fall, more wild fruit, cozy cottage kitchen counter - while editing (and inspiration) continues...

The long saga continues - cows, cottages, and continuing inspiration...


Thanks for reading this.

  • Fall colors are changing. And this year, I'm looking out for that peak color.
  • Fall fruit is coming thick and fast this harvest time. 
  • The Cozy Cottage is moving forward, in spite of other demands.
  • Editing inspirational works leave me inspired on a daily basis - go figure.

Farm News

"Peak Fall" is nearly on us.

While Vermont is known for it's gorgeous fall color, Missouri has it's own beauty this time of year.

The first frost has turned many plants brown and gold by now. The cows still prefer the green grasses down below those stalks, but when winter comes around, everything gets a bit shorter.

Trees are not affected by frost, but turn colors due to their genetic ties into the length of days. So trees behind the cows in that pasture are starting to turn. The bright yellows right now are Maple and Sycamore, while the greens and darker browns are oak (different species). Hickorys are somewhere in between. Pawpaws are bright yellow, but are much shorter than the hardwoods. And in among these are some cedar, which stay green all winter (like pine trees).

This shot was when the herd got out into a pasture they shouldn't have. And so are now back where they should be - although I had some patching to do after the whole herd went through a small hole they found (and made it much larger.)

Tiny Home Progress

The kitchen counter has started. The main counter has been cut to size. And it should be mounted onto the wall with its sturdy frame by the time you get this. That framing also allows for me to get the AC electrical installed. I still have to work out drawers and shelves under that counter, but will probably jump ahead to the electrical meanwhile. (So I can move in and push the whole scene forward that way - which happens when you're reminded daily of what's on your "to-do" list.)

The other demains continue on my schedule, so being able to work in the various short periods of time will be welcome.

Again - progress is a matter of how much and when. Even the little bits.

Editing fills my "idle" moments

The "How to Change Your Life Compleat" is still getting edited daily - which of course keeps me inspired to do better with my own life. 

I haven't gotten back to the videos yet, but their time will come.

Again, your own version of that book (1st Edition) is in the Insiders Club, waiting to be downloaded...

What's Ahead?

Fall fruit

Fall harvest means exactly that...

From the left, Mother picked the tomatoes ahead of the first frost, as they'll ripen up in the coming weeks.
She cross-stacked the wild plums (middle) in other flats so they could ripen similarly.
Below that is a sample of this year's apples. The tiny red ones are wild apples.
And on the left are the walnuts.

Yesterday, someone brought over nearly a half-gallon of ripe persimmons (ours are only starting to turn orange) and so Mother plans to run them through a Foley food mill to separate the pulp from the seeds and stems - while I look forward to the rare treat of Persimmon Cookies.

I'll be picking our own persimmons in November, but have to work out getting the apples gathered meanwhile.

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.
