The other day in town someone asked us what we'd been doing and my husband said "rusticating". I thought he had made up a word but there it is in the dictionary describing us perfectly. We are proud to be authentic rusticators, rusticating in a rustically rustic manner.
(pardon me, I have a cold and a fever and am stuck on the sofa for the morning).

I might actually fit that definition also...after three years and four summers in college, they found out I was living in unapproved housing and insisted I live in the dorm for a year as was required for incoming freshmen...I dropped out before suspension and moved to the country!

My dictionary is from 1968...a book... and has several definitions listed before the British one that means suspended from university...the first few being...to go to the country,to live or stay in the country,to lead a rural life...quality, state or insistance of being rustic.....
Starting with rustic,rustical,rustically,rusticate, rustication, rusticator, rusticity, rustily, rustiness......they all seem to apply to our chosen lifestyle.

I also like to refer to myself as a heathen and a pagan. Those words came to mean non-christian because the country folk were more likely to stick to their earth based beliefs and the city folks were more willing to convert.
Rustically yours,
Gani
