I've been spending a lot of time in the garden catching up on all the things that didn't get done while we were focusing all our time and energy getting the old house sold. And the chickens are helping me.
I planted garlic and shallots today. The hard part will be keeping the chickens from digging them up.

But when we moved everything out on what we thought would be our last time in the old house, it was very bittersweet. So many emotions going through my head, and then the tears started to flow.
Ahh, the memories. Camping out and freezing our first winter as the water line from the well kept breaking under the driveway. Cleaning out bags and bags of bat shit mixed with loose insulation from the attic. Huge plastic walls to keep kids out of construction areas. Our oldest falling face first off his trike into the newly poured concrete for the chimney foundation. So many holidays. Bringing our three youngest home from the birth center. First days of school, home schooling, back to school, my office for my schooling-a bachelor's and master's degrees. So much music! It was a great house acoustically.
But we are on to a new project. The grounds at our new house are my therapy. Whenever I question why we moved I just walk around outside and the answer is all around me.
So back to the blog to continue chronicling everything we are doing here.
