It is a perfectly blustery day on this, the first snow storm of the winter. I perfect day for Mike to work from home and create a simple informational website for my dad and step-mom's organic farm. While he puttered at that, I finished Poppy's stocking made from an old wool blanket and fabric remnants for a total cost of about 50 cents! I then started knitting her pixie hat made from a most wonderful chocolate brown bamboo yarn.
The cats are blissed out upon the couches and chairs while the fire warms us all to the toes. I can't help but wish we could keep our lovely tree all season long with her regal branches draped in oranges and cinnamon and a subtle pine scent dancing out in every direction.
Thoughts and visions of a sustainable life and intentional farm community have been swirling within these walls of late and it is enlivening. I am most inspired to see that this couple is living comfortably about 2 1/2 hours away in an Earthship they were able to build for $43,000.
More photos and details to come with regards to everything I have mentioned above, but for now I am drinking in the fading evening light and attempting to grasp just how amazing and perfect our life is right now…and the amazing plans to make it even more perfectly authentic.
