Life on the Farm Day 1


Well, not really a full day. I arrived after 6.00pm. A looooong drive, well over 600km. 2 breaks but not long breaks. Gorgeous spot, I felt I was in Ireland with all the farms around, and the animals, and hand made quilts and a stunning modern type house but all wood inside, vaulted ceilings, loft, old repurposed wood, the whole house designed by the young woman and executed by her new husband. They were married this month. She fell in love with him in high-school when she was 14, they became best friends and had their first "real" date 2 years later. They have started this farm from scratch and built green houses and chicken coops and grow crops and are expanding it into outfitting, i.e. taking groups hunting and fishing and trapping. They have a cabin on crown land in the inaccessible (except to them) wilderness. They are living their dream and so very young at it too.

So I've laid out my materials, set up my computer, filled my shelf in their fridge with my food and have settled in. I had 5 bags including my food, my journals, my binders of work, (books, anthology), my reading material (oh so much, my books by mail (BBM) have chosen this last box with extreme care, every single book I decant is riveting, the knitting has suffered and so has Netflix.

Which reminds me: update my book list on this blog. Will do.

So I'm settling in quite nicely. And happily. I feel miles away from everything and everybody.

Which is wonderful.

    1. I wish you could too - even here is completely inaccessible, steps up to the front door, etc. How careless of designers everywhere. As I age I am far more conscious of it and even more so as I have challenges in my legs now.
      Maybe with the gaing populations everywhere the world will wake up.

  2. Enjoy....and pamper yourself. Sometimes our batteries get so low we need a complete break to recharge. Yours have been run down by too much work and devastating personal losses. Take time, and enjoy.

  3. Thanks RJA, you completely get it. I felt I had nothing left and it's a chance to revisit all of that too and sort out where the energy goes.

  5. I believe -- strongly -- that we all need a change of place now and then. It seems impossible to break the cycle of tasks and worry otherwise. Glad to see you've found such a beautiful place to put your feet up.

    1. And to regain priorities, I was spread far too thin with an inability to see what was important and what was not. So very glad I escaped!

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
