We are moving to our dream house. This is the scene looking across the goat pens and chicken coop. It is breathtaking and inspiring.
We are so very tired, I’m afraid. We have been taking loads out to the new house every day along with our regular farmer’s markets, farm chores, and household chores, and fixing up the new house. I have great muscles I haven’t seen in some time and even though we are fatigued, we can see the end of the our current transition.
The end of this transition has been a long year full of more friend’s passings and animal losses (another friend and my favorite cat this week) and this year has been ever so arduous. It has been full of fantastic joys though as well. Like being able to watch Maryjane so much and having such a close little bond with her. Like finding the exact homestead we prayed for. Our son getting married, and our daughter graduating. Watching them all work and grow up and find their passions, healthy and beautiful children. The homestead angels that have come to our rescue out of the blue. Friends that have taken time to come help us paint. To help us move a load or two to the new house. To help us finish tasks that have us exhausted. To come teach us how to use our stove. Our friends are many and we are so blessed.
I am looking forward to being able to sit on this bench, perhaps with a cup of coffee and a writing book, or maybe a sketch book, and exhale. To look out upon this amazing canvas and breath in the beauty and rest quietly and whisper words of thanks.
