Truck Into the Shop Tomorrow

I think I am going to slide right back into the roots of this blog and share the everyday events again. It was never meant to fall off the wagon into essays and passion pieces and event notices, which isn't a bad thing at all, but I feel like the heart of the blog is just the good fight of everyday life on the farm. And the big news? The truck goes into the shop tomorrow! It'll be at Bains in Salem for two days, and cost around $750 for new leaf springs, shocks, and labor. It's a lot of money, but they are wonderful people and willing to work with me on a payment plan. So tomorrow I will carefully drive it north to their shop and Patty will pick me up there and bring me home. Luck, labor, friends, and a red pickup.

And a special thanks to those 63 of you who helped me get that truck! The Kiva Loan has been repaid on time every month. If I sell a book or come across a pile of money I will pay it off sooner. But right now I am so grateful it belongs to me in title and the loan repayments are affordable. She's a good truck, even with the string of repairs she is putting me through, but she feels amazing and right to drive and I love her. She's worth the upkeep.

Want to help with the truck?

Hi Jenna,

I really like your blog. Just the every day life, with ups and downs on your little farm. I really admire your perseverance. You didn't choose the easy way. I don't understand why people send you terrible comments. I do not always agree with what you write, but I respect you. Why should we always think the same that would be terrible boring! I'm glad when I read that your truck is going to be repeared and I felt sad when I read it was broken down. Sometimes I wish I lived in the neighborhood, so I could bring you a cake or hug when things go wrong. That would never happen we won't meet. I live in Holland that's to far away. :-( But whenever things go wrong, remember then there is a woman on the other side of the ocean who tries to send you possitive thoughts and energy. Hang in there Jenna, I'm not alone lots of people love your writing!! don't let the bad guys win!!

I love the every day happenings, they're what made me fall in love with the blog. Every fall in the mud, day of shearing and seed planted :-)
