We may enjoy dining at a nicely set table (elegant) but we live connected to the earth. We don’t shun all modern conveniences (I use a bread machine to facilitate our busy lives) as we hang our laundry out to dry (simplicity). http://www.laundrylist.org/
We live simply (though elegantly) and love our connection and closeness to Nature. From April until October we sleep out in a back corner of the yard, surrounded by trees, wild birds and our poultry. Many a morning, if I have read late the night before, the chickens will be waiting (and clucking) outside the tent door!
When I came across this marvelous stove top oven I could not resist! $16 well spent as we use it on top our wood stove which is always going this season of the year. PERFECT for brownies:)
