Bits and Pieces

Hello All,
How was your long weekend?  Busy, that's the only word to describe things here.  We are packing now in earnest as well as doing repairs and starting some painting.  We have 68 days until we take possession of our farm.  We actually closed last Tuesda,y February 15th, it was kind of anti-climatic.  We sent off the papers and money and heard back that all was signed and that was that.  Not very exciting.  We did have special dinner that night and then proceeded to call everyone "Farmer" , "Hey Farmer Mom, or Farmer Kegan, ect."  We OWN a farm!!!  WHoo HOO!!

The days seem to go very slow yet too fast, we are expecting company in March and have given ourselves that deadline for getting most the packing done.  eeekkk too much to do!  On top of packing, ect. Ileigh and I are attempting to sew ours and Elsahs entire wardrobe.  We don't HAVE to, there are no rules of course but we WANT to, we've really had a fun time of it but there is alot more sewing to be done. 
We are entering into a culture so to speak that we are unfamiliar with, Old-Fashioned, Off the Grid, Plain Living.  It's intimidating, but very exciting.  Sometimes Dane and I wonder if we're too old for this, there is so much to learn, so much we don't know, but that also invigorates us.  We can't wait to try our hand at all the new stuff; driving a horse and buggy, gardening on a huge scale, washing laundry by hand, lighting non-electrically, milking cows, raising our food.  Just writing about it makes me so excited I can hardly wait! 
Thank You Lord for Your Blessings----Life is Good!
