Over The Hump
If this move were a work-week
it would be Thursday morning.
I feel like I have ascended the hardest summit
and am on the downhill side.
Do you have any idea how liberating that is?
Three loads have been deposited in this shop,
while only 1 load went into the house.
Most of the boxes will be brought to the house later.
After the movers have brought in the heavy stuff
and after we have decided if we are changing the flooring.
Yes, we are drowning in boxes right now.
A couple of milestones have been reached with this
last UHaul rental.
Two summers ago, I cleaned the shop and ended up with
a pile of bagged garbage that had been sitting there ever since.
1. I hauled 1,000 lbs of garbage to the transfer station.
2. I got the horse panels to the farm. Another milestone
because I have been needing them to use as gates
but needed at least a 17' UHaul to move them.
Again - SO liberating.
The goats are happy we decided to
re-purposed some truck tires.
Sage fondly remembers how she practically
grew up inside a tire.
What I absolutely love about the garden,
is that among all the work and worry that has
taken place over the past weeks,
it has silently continued to grow and thrive.
The peas are sweet and abundant.
Funny little peppers.
Awesome onion flower.
Knee high by the fourth of July?
We got this covered.
Yes, we are back
or maybe just arrived.
it is good to have scaled
the first peak.
We are stronger and more toned.
I felt the first real tinge of the reality of getting to live here.
I am excited and so full of ideas
I just might burst.
