Life Rolls Along...

I think there are a bunch of songs like that... And some about how life is a steamroller. I think it is more like rolling hills. You never really can see when the valley shows up and there are struggles up them and picnics at the top. Right now feels like we stopped for a picnic, but on a windy hill top. The storm is due, but not quite here.

Gabriel hasn't had his surgery yet, we are still trying to find a surgeon who will be open to discussions. We planted out container garden, annnnd, we bought a house!

I am so excited about it. Officially we take possession a the end of the month. The owner is currently renting the whole thing to a company for their workers, who had a lease in place until the end of August. We could kick the lot out and move in at the beginning of July, but that seems pretty rough... So we are moving in September and keeping renter s in the basement hopefully.

It has 6 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths and is on an acre about 20-30 minutes out of town.

You know what an acre means?! CHICKENS! And probably a Cow, and a couple of piggies. Woooo hooo!


  1. Surgery? Yuk! That's exciting about the house. When we first moved into ours, there was a sense of "home", no apartment or having to listen to "the man". Enjoy! And good luck moving in! With this acre that you're going to be on, you should get fruit trees.

  2. I know! My sister showed me this site called and I have been planning out our yard on it.
