Change is afoot----and not a smelly one

OH Glorious day!  I can't remember the last time I felt this hopeful.  Never lose hope, and I haven't.  We found a piece of land, we've nearly bagged it and the guy we're buying from is not a lunatic.


Scoop:  6 little acres of former pasture land. For under $5000


I am teary, blessed and feeling wonderful about this.  My mind is swimming with the possibilities!  Not treading water mind you but swimming like with a tail and fins speeeeeding through all the things this will mean.

  1. Starting a self-sufficient farm
  2. Actually living with my husband, imagine that!
  3. Leaving my job
  4. Moving everything I own!
  5. The culmination of three years worth of working towards this goal
So I go to apply for the loan.  Wish me luck!!


  1. LUCK! All the best to you. You can do it! Looking forward to hear how this turns out!

  2. The best of luck to you, my dear! I hope everything turns out!!

  3. Does a house come with it? Where are you going to live? How about a dugout house like Laura Ingles on The Banks of Plum Creek!

  4. How exciting! Can't wait to hear how things go!
