Journey to the Homestead pt. 3

Had a few bonfires because our bed would not fit outside of the bedroom, so we had to tear it apart… along with the piano that nobody wanted, or the picnic table that was too large to move, and that the new buyers didn’t want either.

A few friends joined me for the final bonfire at our house in the suburbs. We enjoyed wine, memories, and a fine time.

“I know they say, you can’t go home again…” Just closed on our house of 10 years on July 10 and drove away for the last time after handing the keys over. Our first house. The house where Kay was first brought home after coming into this world, where I made dear friends enjoying having wine on the deck, and becoming a home chef… the longest place we’ve ever lived… So many memories. Such a bittersweet day. Onto the next chapter…

We’re officially living in the country with our in-laws, and settling into this dirt.road. country life.

Meanwhile, the excavators have arrived on the land!! 🤗 Forward progress is awesome!!! Look… I have a real driveway now!

Earlier this month while Kay was at Girl Scout camp, we were spared by the hand of God!!! 👐🙌🙏

An EF-1 Tornado dissipated right where we are staying at my in-laws homestead. Never heard alarms, no alarms on the phone – nothing. (Thanks a lot NOAA 😡) Makes living without power for over 24 hours fine compared to what could have been! Thank you sweet and merciful Jesus!

Kay had a wonderful time at camp learning about making new friends, kayaking by herself, and learning a bit of self-sufficiency!

Later this month we visited the county fair in the county we will be living at, and decided that out of all county fairs we’ve ever been to, that this was our favourite.  Kay is hopeful to join 4H next year, and show goats, and rabbits. I swooned over the goats and can’t wait to make that dream a reality!

Today the survey is finally getting done! Next up is the permit, and hopefully we are breaking land soon! I’m gonna pop a cork when that finally happens! #LetsGetDigging 🚜🍾🥂🏡
