A New Chapter

A new chapter is beginning for my hubby and I.  We recently moved back to our property in the forest.  To the house we built on the side of a mountain.  A house surrounded by trees and bordered with a creek on one side.  It's fairly isolated.  Quiet, calm, mysterious. Nature all around.

After living in a small city for six years we are back and still getting used to the strange but familiar.

We see people we know, we know but can't quite place them or we remember a face but not a name.  We are back in a small town where much has changed and much has not changed.

The house my hubby and I and our kids built was never quite finished and we want it to be finished. It deserves to be finished because it's beautiful.  There are memories here of our kids growing up.  Blood, sweat and tears, literally, went into this house and land.

So we are here.  Preparing to hibernate for the winter.  3 cords of wood has been chopped and stacked in the wood shed.  Food is being prepared for the freezer.  Plans for all kinds of indoor work are being formulated.

    1. Call anytime! Still back and forth a bit bringing all our belongings in small loads. Officially empty-nesters after 32 years! It's strange to be back, but good!
