A moment that may change my life forever

        Today, the baby and I went to a quaint NH town to look at a house. A 30 acre historic farmhouse, with lots of animals. At the moment it is not a working farm, and how I wish I could turn it into one. But me and a 10 year old just can't do it by ourselves. When I think of my friends and all of the equipment and the help they have, reality hits. The main house is 4+ bedrooms minimum and it just goes on and on. Then it has a great little house attached where I can see myself growing old peacefully, while the kids live in the main house and run the farm.
         The house itself is very very old. The main house 1865 and the little house 1760  need extensive work. The main house bedrooms don't have heat, nor any vents for heat to rise. So help from my followers, do I fall in love with a farmer or a carpenter/electrician etc. etc. At my age I don't think I will find either. Summers at the house would be a dream in itself, maybe, who knows I will work at it.

Today starts a brand new year. My daughter and I started the New Year off volunteering at the local food pantry. She really enjoys helping out and I think it will always be a part of her life, in all actuality it is what makes the world go round everyday. So I know I am suppose to make all sorts of resolutions, but we all know in a week they are finished and put away until the next year in oh maybe a week. So this year I am going to instill in myself to continue on my crazy journey to living as frugally as possible, not keeping up with the Jones, because we all know what happens when the cash dries up, the Jones don't wave to you anymore and living more in the dirt than I ever have. Deanna is going to be 11 this year and if I don't make even more of an effort to keep her plugging away right along with me, I will lose her to the garbage of what is all around her. We will learn values this year. Happy New Year everyone and let me know what you are all doing on your farms, in your shops or at your kitchen tables.
