Our house is really starting to take shape now. I mean we have a roof. It's a significant step that I didn't think would be so overwhelming until it happened and I got all emotional, choked up even and pretended that the wind had blown dirt in my eye to excuse the welling up of tears.
It's. Really. Happening.
We spent a week up near our soon to be home over the holidays. Time we spent there was shared with the builders, and watching them work, like a well oiled machine constructing my house, our home is just phenomenal. I mean, hats off to those guys...they really are amazing craftsman.
Our time was used up making up the veg boxes that will soon be home to seasonal produce and feed my family. The aim is that it will be ready come time for spring planting. We have to get it rabbit and kangaroo proof first! We also planted 33 olive trees...all by hand and even though that ground was soft, I'm already hoping that I don't have to manually dig too many more holes....Did someone say machine post digger?
I got familiar with the brush cutter and paid eager attention to using the ride on mower...things I have previously known nothing about. Even my mind is taking shape to a whole new way of living. And its exciting!
Oh and what do you think of the new header? Thanks to Dan for designing the perfect logo for us and our new adventure!
