I love you, Sun.



I guess we're starting spring early this year, or at least temporarily, and we're taking full advantage of these splendidly sunny days. After so many cold, dark months it's easy to forget what early morning sun looks like coming through the bedroom window and how much easier it is to get out of bed to start a full day of outdoor work. I. love. it. This week's brightness has fully renewed our energies to continue building on the beginnings of our new homestead. And this time, with a bit of experience behind us. We're carefully observing the lay of the land in the few seasons we have now lived here; where the pond/s will make to most sense to absorb and hold water, how to extend our pasture, the perfect spot for a wood-fired hot tub. It's really exciting to formulate the plans for the five acres we live within and just now watching this process manifest, step by step, each rainy, snowy, and sunny day that we meet each day.
