It has been so long since I have updated this website about our farmhouse renovation and attempt to start a farm that I don’t even know where to start. Honestly. That’s one reason it has been so long: It gets to a point where catching up seems impossible, making it that much harder to even say anything.
The biggest development for us is the fact that Bob is in the Middle East, beginning a six-month deployment. The other is the bank’s insistence that we “finish” the house, paying out of pocket for all kinds of things neither we nor the bank could foresee when we bought the house (like falling down walls, as just one little example). Much more has happened, but those are the two biggies affecting this farmhouse renovation right now.
Just those two issues alone are a lot to tackle in an update, and I’m not sure I want to. So I decided I would simply start with today and some photos. You won’t see anything of the inside of the house, or the house at all, but there’s a reason for that: I want to get this dang house DONE and have my husband come home to a real home, not a to-do list the size of Mt. Everest. I want to surprise him with finished projects, not in progress ones. My plan is to post photos as things get done. 🙂
In the meantime, I gotta say something! So let’s start with today. Today is June 8 2013. Today is the day I start updating our website on a regular basis again. And today…
….our surprise baby chick ventured outside with mama for the first time. Watching it explore the big wide world while sticking close to mama’s side took the level of cuteness for the day off the charts. 🙂
