We can bake in the little bake oven in the wood stove,  and we can cook on our gas range! We can flush our toilet with water in the tub! It’s like Laura Ingalls Wilder!

Right now, however, we are on a little adventure into wifi world, catching up on email and Internet stuff, taking hot showers, and enjoying the experience of flushing the toilet with just a single push of the handle.

  1. Congratulations on getting by “off the grid”. Good planning by Jake and Iris! That wood stove looks so cozy (and the buns look perfect!!). Stay warm. Great contrast with the brilliant red leaves against the snowy background!
