Slowly Realizing plus Pictures of the View
I am slowly, bit by bit realizing what our upcoming move means. For example:
We will be able to see the stars at night! We can't because of city light pollution right now. I want a telescope all over again. One that I can attach my SLR to.
No more middle of the night loud not very talented rappers outside on the street waking up the babies (myself included).
I can grow sweet potatoes! Heck, I'll be able to grow carrots, radishes, turnips, potatoes, and anything else that is a root/dirt veggie. I can't here because of lead in the soil.
When it gets really cold or the boiler/furnace goes out, we'll have a wood cook stove and a fireplace to snuggle up by.
And my day comprises of these tiny realizations just sparkling at me like magic. All day. Everyday.
i feel so blessed to have the opportunity to give my children what my Aunt gave me, a magical woods to explore, chores to be responsible for, and a healthier food culture.
