We heard from the factory where our house is being built and it looks like they will be shipping it to us in March… or so. On the one hand, I’m very excited and happy that we are nearing this point, on the other I’m realizing how my life needs to take a little shift to accommodate such an arrival. The property looks good, the grass is slowly starting to replace the rubble and I started placing rock around key plantings and trees I want to define. We had to put this “no trespassing” sign up to keep wayward folks from visiting here. It was something I hated to do, seems almost negative at some level, yet it was something that needed to be done because of a few unwelcome visitors the last time I camped here with the children.
Thankfully, I have a friend who has a place to stay not far from our property. I made the trip out last weekend after my big Pacific Cancer Foundation event and it was just what my body and soul needed. The morning rain reminded me that although much needs to be done outside, like slinging rocks, repairing water lines and clearing rubble, there is also much work that needs to be done on the inside. We have the beauty of nature and the rhythm of seasons to thank for these earthly gifts.
