Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, Staying Alive….

…or not. We have had such a difficult time keeping our animals alive on this little hobby farm! We’ve only had small ones thankfully, but still it’s so frustrating to go out and discover the raccoons have once again emptied our chicken coop.

I haven’t planted a thing yet. It’s just been a weird year, and so though I’m hoping to still get a few things in the ground, I’m learning to be ok if I don’t. I feel a bit of pressure as I’m surrounded by a group of hobby farmers at our church, and so many of the discussions I’m part of or overhear have to do with farming.

We are so enjoying being in this house, though, and I look forward to making it more “ours” in the years to come. My biggest issue is patience. I have a to-do list a mile long, and I have to remember that I can’t do all in a day, week or even month, so to just be content with things as they are.

Our house up river is finally SOLD! So after almost two years, we are happy to be winding down to closing day, and moving on. Trusting God to work out the details of getting it emptied out, as we have little to no spare time, and there is still a fair amount of things that need to be moved.

Overall, life has been stressful, hard, and good.

About BJ

I am a Christian wife and mom. My husband and I have six children and we live in rural Atlantic Canada. We live on a little farm that I have dubbed Willow Brook Farm, where we are adopting animals one-by-one, and I homeschool our six blessings. I enjoy reading, writing, music, and all things nesting. I aspire to one day be a great musician, a great gardener, and a great nester. I have a life full of people who are dear to me, but of course, the biggest shout-out goes to Jesus, who makes this life of mine possible.

    Good to hear you sold the house.

    It was sooo crazy down to the last minute – never had pickier, more difficult buyers according to our realtor, and both lawyers. We’re all sighing with relief that it’s DONE. :)
