I am back at the farm this week, for the first time since before the holidays. Let me tell you, it's difficult to start a fire when the kindling is under 2 feet of snow and ice.
We had a good time though.
I need to get my life back oriented to the farm, but am not looking forward to being cold and alone again. The wood stoves need to be stocked every 2 hours, or they go out. This makes sleeping, visiting neighbors, shopping, and school much more difficult than they have to be.
But I can smell spring in the air, and I am filled with hope.
Our dear neighbor Rose, told me I could shower, eat, and even sleep at her place, so that is an option until things get settled at our place. We'll see.
In the meantime, I have bees coming in a month, and a garden to get in a month after that.
Voluptuous update: We had a party this weekend:hearty beef stew, card game, good friends and family.
Simplicity update: My clever husband melted snow for wash water...never occured to me, I have so much to learn....
