I love our home. I love the location of our home. I love the land our home is on.
Recently, I wrote about how I was treated to a Bald Eagle in our back yard: here. Being treated to a beautiful natural view around here is part of normal life for us.
I went for a run around my block and it started to snow. It was so beautiful, I had to stop and take a picture (thank goodness for small camera phones!):
So then, I hopped of the road to enjoy the snow coming down on the creek.
I even get to see healthy foxes by my home. I always see him about a half a mile away from my house and my chickens.
And in the morning, I get to see this sunrise:
By moving out into the country, I have one day a week that I spend 4 hours commuting, 2 hours to work and 2 hours home from work. The rest of the time I work from home. It is worth every second of every minute I spend commuting to have this sanctuary be my home. I love it here. I love the people here and I love my life here. I can have chickens, a huge garden, and a wood stove. While it’s not perfect, it’s my home.
As time passes, I will continue to make updates to our home that will make it more and more ours. We’ve lived here just over two years, and have spent all of our resources on the outside: Planting trees, bushes, shrubs, a garden and creating a home to have happy chickens.
I look forward to continued growth in our home and ourselves. Thank you for sharing in our journey.
