Taking Stock

                                                                                      
    In the past year and a half I have learned to download and understand a wiring diagram, make an airline reservation, what a fuel solenoid fuse is, maintain the pool, switch implements on the tractor, use the smoker to make some amazing meats, fix all kinds of stuff , listen to my body when it needs rest, listen to my heart when it just needs, revamp the playhouse, wallpaper the 'cocktail room',  actually use those implements that I have figured out how to attach, make friends, hire contractors and speak  knowledgably to them, walk into a room alone, unload crates off a tractor trailer with the pallet forks, fish snakes out of the pool, do it all myself, ask for help, fire up a chain saw, get a building permit, draw a sketch of a building Fritz and I had planned long ago to add to our farm.....and have a builder interpret it so beautifully into this:

                                                                           Or, as I like to call it,

 The Garden House

Still a work in progress {both the building and me}, but progress it is. 

My family and friends have been constant lifelines and encouragers.

To all I say Thank-you.


the sheep however, are unimpressed

You have done an amazing job, I’m sure Fritz would be proud of you and you should be proud of yourself. I hope to one day get to visit the Garden House xx
