Birthdays and Moving days

Last week my baby turned SIX

 
Insanity right?? He’s now starting to read small books and spell words and do one digit addition. Holy moly!!

We celebrated a day early and he went on his merry way with his sister to spend the weekend at his grandparents house while Toph and I finished packing up the house.

We made a quick job of packing the uhaul and scrubbing the old house clean, loaded up the critters and headed on out. 

  
Everyone say “bye old house” 

We have been in our new house since Sunday night, we are mostly unpacked…. My craftroom will most likely be the last room unboxed

   
   
I’ve been getting a little help from the organizing queen.

You might have noticed something in that top picture, something I didn’t previously have (because I sure the heck would have posted something about it.)

  
That’s right folks!! Thanks to the sellers who left this for me, I am now the proud owner of a second spinning wheel. 

   
 
It appears to have the original flyer, I did a little research and it appears that this wheel was made by a wheelwright named Jeremie Ouellet, who was from Canada. I need to read up on it more…..and buy a drive band….and test it out lol.

Moose has made a new friend since moving to our new home

  
This is Amy, she is sweet, cuddly, and friendly. She lives down the road and comes by to visit every morning.

We are very excited to be starting this new venture, we’ve been walking around the fields, envisioning what critters will go where, where we will have our garden, how many chicken wagons we will build, and what breed of sheep we will get 😉. 

Mostly, I am looking forward to canning all the yummy veggies and fruits we will be growing (did I mention we have three kinds of fruit trees, grape vines, raspberry bushes, and ever so many blueberry bushes?), I already found the perfect place for storing our canned goods

  
Have a great night folks!
