Struggle - Pt. II

Wow.  On my way home from work I realized that the way I left my last post hanging that I probably had left y'all thinking one thing (pregnancy) when that isn't what I meant.

I am not, that I know of, pregnant.

Sorry.  I wish I could say differently.

Anyway, I was thinking that the focus for my blog, along with my trying to save my little corner of the planet is this:

And the 150 year old house that accompanies it.

My Beloved and I are buying a farm house that was built while Abraham Lincoln was president.  It has this dairy barn with the little yellow milk house.  A chicken coop and a big ol' pole barn.

These are the things that are going to occupy my life.  And my blog.

For now I've given up on any pretext about what my blog is or isn't and I'm just going to go with the flow (which is against my nature).



  1. Jealous! I can't wait to read all about it. I would love love love to have a farm house and piece of earth like that. I'm so excited to come along with you via the blog.

    You'd better keep me updated! I know where to find you if you don't.

    1. Hey, when y'all come to Michigan this summer y'all can stay at the house if ya want, it's plenty big and there are acres for the minions to busy themselves with. Aaaaaaaaaaaaand, tell Ken that it's a deal. I'm afraid restoring the barn is going to be the biggest project and there are a *lot* of projects.

  2. Ken would also like to have me tell you not to throw away any of that wood. He will either take it off your hands, or you can easily sell it on craigslist. People LOVE LOVE LOVE that reclaimed barn wood.
    A gold mine on your hands!
