It looks like I'm not the only one that is away from blogging land. I'm sure is must be because of the time of year. The starting of school and fall beginning the harvest.
I, myself, have been either out running trying to get things ready for fall and winter or in a corner reading. I can't seem to find a happy medium for what I need. Lately I have been drawn to books about being prepared. I'm not usually the type to get all hung up about one thing. But the more my husband and I look for and talk about what we want in a piece of land the more these things come to mind.
We plan to build our house, but have looked at several lots and farms that have houses on them. This brings up different questions. 1. Do we live in and fix up the house already there or 2. live in the house as is and use the money for the new house. 3.are we willing to give up some of the things we want, to get most of what we want.
We are working on a five year plan. To be on the land and have our dream house finished or close to being finish. The only problem is agreeing on the land to buy. I gave myself and DH a deadline of May 2010 to buy the land, no if and or buts!!! So if it doesn't have the pond he wants on it, he can dig it, period!! So until we meet again ~~smiles~~
