Our connection to place is growing. I and the children have now spent just about 2 weeks straight on the property and been quite content in the process. This was also our 2nd weekend straight on the property and it has been truly heavenly. There is something really great about nice full days spent outside working side by side with your family and loving every minute. This weekend’s agenda included, cleaning out the garage, cleaning out the packing shed, getting the log splitter up and running, getting the tiller attached to the tractor (still not quite done), fixing goat fencing (it’s breeding season and those boys are persistant!)and a few other small chores, like getting the living room ready for painting, wow. Along the way we had a couple good movies, some good food and stories.
Yes we are settling in and it feels wonderful. Soon the snow will be flying and outdoor time will be limited so it is good to get the outdoor projects finished now and the indoors straightened out and beautified. This is probably one of the first years I am really looking forward to winter, minus the snow removal.
