Fall in Brookline NH Our Streamlined Life

Another day, another housesit … this one just around the corner from my parents’ house. The leaves are slowly changing to red, gold, and orange, and it’s finally getting cooler. Best of all … we’re doing some serious travel planning around here — stay tuned!

Housesit | Our Streamlined Life

This week we’re housesitting on a beautiful lake in central New Hampshire! The leaves are juuuuust starting to turn colors and the summer crowds have left, leaving us almost alone with the loons 🙂

Our favorite finds from around the web:

  • How to make your life adventure ready. As we slow our travels, we want to make sure to keep our sense of adventure. “In between the epics, though, are a thousand tiny ways to get into the woods, from impromptu paddles to single-night backpacking trips. [But] it’s not always easy, and there are plenty of reasons to stay on the couch.”
  • On moving up a grade in life.  “I think it’s possible to replicate that sense of progress by asking some simple questions each September: do I feel like I’ve moved up a grade in life? If so, great. But if not, what could I do so I’ll feel differently next September?”
  • Ann Patchett’s Guide for Bookstore Lovers. It’s a road trip map … of bookstores. Go thou and do likewise. (Some of our favorite indie bookstores: Peregrine Book Company, Prescott, Arizona; Sherman’s, Bar Harbor, Maine; Taylor Books, Charleston, WV. What are yours?)
