I haven’t posted as often as I would like to. There are several reasons for that. One big reason is that I have been spending time with family over the holidays and I’ve been occupying my time with that. Another big reason is that since I have been spending most of my time with family, I haven’t had a lot to post about. I’m not doing a lot of farm work and I don’t have a lot to post at this point.
But, there is big news on the way. We are working hard to buy some property. I went and bid on 10 acres, but that went out of our price range quickly and sold for well more than the property was worth. We are getting close to reaching an agreement on 5 acres just outside of Battle Ground, Washington. It would be within a bike ride to work and there would be plenty of time and space to start a little farm. There are a lot of things that I look forward to with the property. I’m especially excited that we may be able to move in as early as next week. But the time line makes me nervous because the next few weeks are going to be EXTREMELY busy.
With a new baby on the way, classes to prepare and now a house to move into and buy appliances for, etc., we may be busy. But I would far rather be busy close to work in a house than living at the farm and having to commute three days a week, so we’re excited to move forward.
I’ll post pictures if/when we move in.
