I can almost imagine what it would be be like to have some land (borrowed, even) and animals and somehow belong to it and be a part of it. Its beautiful!

Hello!

This is totally unrelated to this post, but I wanted to let you know I just finished reading your book, "Made from Scratch" and I loved it very much. When my husband and I bought our home, I became engrossed in gardening and cooking everything from scratch (pasta included). Unfortunately, I realized that having kids (3 in 5 years, yikes!) slow things down quite a bit, but I am now starting to be motivated again to try to learn to sew and knit, and my husband and I started talking about chicken again. His only concern is that I would not be able to put them down if needed...

I had just borrowed it from the library, but I will definitely buy my own copy for motivation. Thank you so much for taking the time to write it!

That magic hour is shifting abit, and will again next week, but if you're able to shift along with it, that's a good rhythm.

so, off the subject, but is Finn a maniac goat climber kind of guy, or perhaps because he hangs out with the sheep a bit, he stays down? Just driving past some goats in a fence and wondered if the sheep helped to ground him.

Wow. I stumbled upon your blog somehow... and am amazed. I have been thinking and mulling over doing the very thing you have done. I am 27, I have 2 children, and a husband. A small zoo (3 cats 2 dogs and a bird). I have always always been more comfortable in the country, doing my own thing. Necessity has forced me to be a single mom living in the city at one point, and then a married mom of two, still in the city. Well, not much of a city, there are 18 000 people here. I am surrounded in this town by gorgeous scenery, lush trees, and productive farmland. And every day when I go out, I wish wish wish I could sell our house (it truly is still a house, not a home, odd!), and move it all into the country. I feel like my children would be better served by learning the ways of life- baking a loaf of bread, gathering your own eggs, pulling lettuce from your garden. Oh, I do it on a smaller scale in town, but I wish I could do it like you have. I am in awe of your tenacity and lust for the life you have. If only we could all be so lucky! I will follow your blog and live vicariously through you for now, until my time comes when I can live more simply than we do now... you are truly an inspiration to me.
