The past year has been such a crowded, overwhelming one. A lot of good and a lot of bad has happened. We had to say good bye and we were able to say hello.
For the past three months we are now living in a dream come true and yet, we are still learning, still adjusting, still mourning.
We are literally getting our feet wet as smallhold farmers and it is both exciting and scary.

Our small livestock is growing and all are well and we are looking forward to the time where we get a couple of more hens as well as ducks. Soon I will have to built my raised vegetable pads. But atm we are all enjoying the stillstand of winter, the daily routine of looking after our livestock. There is much wondering, discussion, dreaming and planning for what will come next. Books are piled up beside my bedside and on my kitchen table - providing me with ideas and inspiration, and a much needed planner to get to know the rhythm of garden life.

We are still enjoying the winter wonderland that is surrounding us. There are still chores to do, especially in view of the New Year ahead of us but it all goes smoothly, as if we have never done anything else before. These former urbanites have smoothly and effortlessly slipped into a farmer's life ... and we love it.

This entry reads like a gardening book. I am really looking forward to seeing the house and everything. :)

LOL, really?
I hope you can make it ... I'm already busy getting started on my sewing room and your future guest room :)

Yozora no mukou ni wa mou asu ga matteiru

ano toki kimi ga ushinatta mono wa
yozora no mukou no hoshi ni natta
nurashita hoho wa itsuka kawaite
kitto habatakeru kara
