Primarily, whatever we come up with (you've gotta help!) will be the new name of this blog. It's changed, as my life has. From 'This Is Our Life' to 'The Tales of Chicken Mama, Lady Homesteader' to 'The True Tales of a Lady Homesteader'. And I feel that the time for yet another one is upon me. Since I don't own land anymore (grrr!) and my life is going to be extremely pared down for a while, I don't feel like "homesteader" currently applies. At least, not in so great a status as to be part of this blog name.
Topping my list so far is 'Life in a One-Room Cabin'. Simple and to-the-point. But will that apply once I get the addition on? Technically, it will still be one room . . . although I will have a tiny little pantry behind a closed door. So, does that mean it becomes two rooms? And does the upstairs automatically negate the "one room" status?
I've tried to come up with names relavent to my physical surroundings: I'm tucked into the understory of spruce, poplar, and birch trees. ('Life in the Understory'? Metaphorical in a couple of ways.) There is one spruce on the southeast side of the cabin with a very noticeable fork in it . . . but I can't get a good picture of it:
|See the fork? (Left side of the photo.)|
So, running with that, and the metaphorical 'fork in the road' where I find myself:
A Fork In the Road
A Fork In the Path
Little Cabin at the Big Fork (too Western?)
Stick a Fork In Me (okay, so I'll admit that I came up with this one when I was feeling a little grouchy & resentful):
|'Chicken Mama: Belly-Up'??? (Okay, okay, nahhh.)|
There is this tree on the path to the cabin with these three fungi that I've always enjoyed:
Content in a Cabin? I really like this but feel like it's been "done". I know there's a blog out there that's called 'Content in a Cottage', and there MUST be one called 'Content in a Cabin', right?
I have a few more ideas, but my time is up.
Start working on this, will you? ;)
Peace out - CM
