Time for a change...
So, big shock! We may be leaving our farm. I know, I'm surprised, too....but with my husband's illness, it's a lot to take care of by myself. And, even though he's improving, he's not ready to tackle major farm projects...and may not be for some time.
We've talked to my mom (who also lives in the small farm town by us) and she's on board with moving to a larger home/smaller land and maybe sharing the space. This will be so much fun! My mom and I are super close (I sound like a teenager LOL) and she and my husband get along great. She's very laid back and together we have a perfect garden (she weeds, I water).
Anyway, this would be a year or so from now...but I'm kind of excited. We'd keep the horses (they're too spoiled for anyone else to want them!) and look for 5-10 acres closer to town. Kind of excited...but it's a big change of plans. No more remodeling the farmhouse, but we might end up with a much nicer (less work) place, with a garage or shop and maybe a garden shed! And no more 30 minute drive home, either.
I'll keep you posted, but (fingers crossed) I'm hoping we can find a wonderful place and have more fun, with less stress! Just wanted to share with my pals, who I know will understand how exciting a 'new' (to us) house and garden will be. And of course, I'm planning to move ALL my favorite plants and small lilacs, apple tree starts, etc. Should be an adventure :)
