Coffee-Powered Housing: A Drive Solution?

October 24, 2018

We love our coffee on the Drive. We have more coffee shops in a few blocks than we have fingers and toes to count them all. In Massachusetts someone has come up with the idea of powering very small houses with the coffee-grounds residue.

At just 275 sq. feet, “amenities include a loft bed, jacuzzi tub, cedar deck, and all the teeth-rotting coffee and donuts you can ask for.”

For only $10 a night (!!), I can see a few of these going up in the lanes.

My Perfect Weather

October 24, 2018

I went out shopping on the Drive this morning and it was the most splendid weather — my absolute favourite: cool without being cold, bright and sunny, refreshing and clean.  Nearly everyone seemed to have a smile on their face, so it wasn’t just me.

I ended the walk with a very pleasant sit down in Salsbury Park, watching kids play in the sand, and dogs chasing sticks among the thick piles of fallen leaves. I collected acorns for  our visiting squirrels and stretched out my legs in the sun.

Sometimes you just can’t beat the simple stuff.
