I am naturally an impatient person, I have always had a hard time waiting for everything, I'm naturally excited about life and new adventures At first I was in a hurry up mode in regard to working on the new house, but now I find when we are there, I am ok with taking things slow and working on projects one at a time and not working at a frantic pace just to get finished. It is deeply satisfying to see the progress....outside! :) Right now our focus has been to get our animal pens and habitats built. When it becomes hot and miserable as it does in the mid-west we will head inside and work.
The other evening I decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and the freedom to cook by an open fire. My dh dug a fire pit and coal pit and I cooked dinner outside on wood coals. It was rewarding and delicious. There is no comparison to the joy and peace of living in the country.
