We decided to put building our house on hold and stay here for awhile. The market just wasn't cooperating. blah.
Every time we've tried to build, it just hasn't worked out. Not the right time, not the right budget, not the right economy, etc. So everywhere we've lived has been just a stepping stone till we build on the land.
When we live on the land, that's when all our dreams will come true.
I have a binder full of house dreams. It's 10 years full of ideas and wants and wishes, just waiting for "the house". The hardest part of putting "the house" on hold...again...was putting my binder away...again. Back to temporary living. Until my wise (and handsome) husband said to me, "Why can't you have those things now? What are you waiting for? Go through your notebook and make it happen where you are."
He's so smart. I've just been waiting, not seeing. Not planting.
So the first thing we've done is put in our garden!! Hooray!
4 raised cedar boxes for vegetables and herbs, 2 long rows of 24 blackberry and raspberry bushes (that's right, 24. I'll make you a cobbler), and 4 blueberry bushes. And they look lovely in our fenced in neighborhood not-the-land back yard.
The rest of the house is coming...slowly. That's where I've been: lost in the huge world of design, and my notebook.
In the mean time, I'm enjoying where I'm planted.
Just waiting for berries.
