Our New Life
What have I been doing this past many months of no blogging. Reinventing ourselves. We sold our beloved house in the Big Lost River Valley and moved to Victor, ID which is about 20 miles or so from Jackson Hole, WY. As much as we loved out house, we wanted more snow, plain and simple, as well as the opportunity to work if we need or want, so we left is to the great mystery of fate to determine if we would make the move. In other words, would our house sell? Well it did, to the only person who looked at it! We looked at 30 houses in the Teton Valley and we ended up choosing a place that has several of the things we were missing at the old place. We have a giant green pasture with water rights, a guest house, lots of room in the main house, a huge garage, a barn that fits many tons of hay…. We are now fully prepared to take the next step toward self-sufficiency, grow our own, eat our own, have a farmer’s market stand? Yes, I left behind my three vegetable gardens, multiple flower gardens, the place I worked myself silly over, but what is life, but work? I’ll do it here, there or anywhere. It’s a good thing too, because…
It was a short sale, so what does this means? Much work required. After 6 full dump loads, 5o gallons of toxic waste taken to the station, and weeks and weeks of toil, I am posting pictures of our new paradise as a slide show.
