It seems we haven’t been progressing very fast on the house. We’ve been trying to get our webstore up and running and all sorts of other things are happening, too. We’ve been skiing a lot, in an effort to get our family in good shape this winter. I’ve picked up a few new clients, one of them very exciting and interesting. Chris has been working with the kids on some school projects. He and Helen have been planning the garden and ordering seeds while we’ve been working with both the girls on 4-H speeches and with Stephen on the start of his 4-H demonstration with a friend. The car needed an oil change which meant actually getting it in the shop through a few feet of snow that hadn’t been plowed yet this year. We are readying the ewes for lambing in about 5 weeks and the kids Aunt has been trying to convince them to raise ducks for her this year.
All in all very busy. It almost feels like it did “before” we slowed down…can’t wait for spring when everything seems easier and warmer. I’m feeling a bit neither-here-nor-there…something my mom used to say once in while. Never thought I’d feel the same sometimes! On a positive note, I think we’ve had something like 40 hours of sunshine already in February and only 7 each in Decemer and January! It was -5 today outside and +12 inside the earthship…bring on spring.
