Quoting: abby
how are things? what have you been doing? miss seeing posts. take care!

Been awhile since posting.

All is well
Just enjoying the summer
Hot days
Cool nights

Making avian abodes like crazy
Can't keep up
Not that I'm in a hurry
Treating this summer like vacation

Cabi is spinning yarn and knitting socks

Haven't had too many visitors
I like that

Not seeing any red tails this year, but did see a few baldies fly over

Then there was the one on hwy 97 on the way to town

Dining on a fresh road kill muley

Put an earnest money on a house in town a few weeks ago

We're closing Monday

A couple things swayed me;

My lady is a bit fed up with our cabin (off grid) situation
Oh, she's tough enough, but hey, we've proven ourselves
Why suffer
She yearns for a proper kitchen
Pooping inside (in winter)
Raising a garden that won't freeze (in July)
Raising a garden that won't get eaten (other than by us)
Having to contend with renegades (my friends)

Hey, she's my lady
And if I go down, I want her in town

I have some concerns too;

Thinking about these summer fires
Hasn't been a season we haven't been threatened
Gettin' kinda tired of that

Driving 100 miles (round trip) for needful things
Jeep and pickup, like me, ain't gettin' any younger

The clincher?

2.875 interest rate!!!

Can't pass it up

Aside from my lady's wishes, it's a no brainer for this ol' coot

We'll keep this cabin place
Won't be quite the same.....empty shop

Maybe sell it come spring......maybe
(thinking out loud right now)

Not far behind you my friend .Been thinking we need less to take care of . 18 foot ceilings to dust ,4 acres of grass to cut its too much.

I have been worried about you two with the fires. sounds like a wonderful decision. when we left the woods, it seemed like such a horrible thing. I have to say, tho, that life is really great! loving our little house in the suburbs!! take care!

Sounds like the right decision for the both of you...well done. If you really love your mate, have always had a shared dream of cabin life and want to be there together...cabin life has to work for both of you. I have certainly come to terms with this on our journey. My wife has severe rheumatoid arthritis and cabin life is very physical...she was feeling left behind. I would have preferred a more rustic setup with less conveniences, but then she would not be able to participate and that was never the dream...Cabin life was always an us thing and who knows how long we will have it...but it’s all good. You don’t need to live in a cabin to have a pioneer’s spirit. Cheers to you both on your “ new opportunity” for yet another phase!
