While we wait for our house to close, and look for our forever home, I have often caught myself thinking about where I would like to be in a year. A quaint little cabin nestled in the woods, my kids homeschooling in front of a warm fireplace. The smell of cinnamon bread coming from my wood cook stove. Getting up early to milk the cow, feed the chickens, and bask in God's creations. A peaceful nights sleep knowing that we have an abundant supply of home grown goods in the cellar and freezers.
I love the scenario that plays out over and over in my head. A list of things I hope to purchase once my house sells includes:
more cast iron
rapid washer (for washing clothing)
Will we accomplish all this in a year? Probably not, but I'm not afraid to work hard for it.
