We have decided not to sell our house. That means buying a farm is on hold. For a minimum of 5 years. Our furnace and air conditioners were over 15 years old so we replaced them with a new geothermal heating and cooling system. It will take us about 5 years to pay it off. I am settling in here for the long haul. Dear husband and I have been discussing perimeter fencing our tiny 3 acres so we can get sheep. We doubled our bee hives and bought a pressure canner. We fenced our garden and put in a few tomato plants and comfrey starts. Next year I should have enough comfrey to surround each of our fruit trees.
I can be happy here. I am helping out several other small dairy farms and enjoying working with their cows. I will be content while I am here.
We have found a new church and I am enjoying a women’s bible study group there. It is well with my soul.
