so, I guess I can sort of tell you what we've been up to.
we have been trying to make a move to somewhere inspiring that we'd love to live!
I won't tell you where we're thinking of moving just yet,
just because it may not work out...
currently we're in a transitional phase.
I and my little girl are staying at my husband's sister's place while my husband keeps working out of town.
his sister and her family had been gone for a couple weeks to Japan to visit family.
(yes, his sis is married to a Japanese guy. two Japanese people in the family! interesting, eh?)
while they were gone, I had an animal care taking job at their place.
they have a cat and a bunch of chickens.
I feed them, collect the eggs twice a day and tuck them in at night.
sure chickens taste good and I certainly love eggs, but oh man, I can't stand them...
they kind of creep me out - how them move is very weired and I can't figure out what they're thinking(if not at all)...
I even chopped some wood yesterday! it was a lot of work!!!
I don't think I've ever used an ax before.
what a way of life!
it is very inspiring to be living off grid and be self-sustainable,
but I think I'm going to wait another ten fifteen ears before I get into a country living!
