There is a large hole and should be a foundation put in at Grandma's Farm,

this week.

Hopefully, the house will be delivered next week. It's Grandma and Aunt's house. We will live in the original farm house. It seems incredible,

that this dream I have dreamed for so long is going to come true.

I can't wait.

There have been a few fun things happening here.

I've been dying eggs

The boys are having Easter Egg Hunts.

We bought new dining room chairs (which match our lovely table).

What a fun week!

Reduce Clutter

In my daily blog browse I followed Shivaya to Bernadette to Shannon and found some inspiration (see sidebar pin: 'Reduce Clutter Create Space 2010') to start my sorting/packing before I talk myself into insanity.

My Friday-morning-Bob-Evans-Ladies helped too:) We were talking about how Jesus shook-up Sabbath from the book "Rest: Living in Sabbath Simplicity" by Keri Wyatt Kent and making sure we are carrying His [easy] yolk not someone else's [heavy] yolk.

"Lord, help me to do the tasks before me, as though I am doing them for You (and they are all for You). Amen."

Have some wonderful sunshine!

P.S. - This blog took a ridiculously long time to write! Working out how to quickly add links may be the work of days [read: weeks, months]. I am hoping to be able to put up lots of links and funny little things in the sidebars as I love other peoples. I am also planning to post my blog on Facebook, a big public step for me as Kable is currently my only reader!

St Paddy's Day

Spring is [almost] here!

My boys think it is:)

Now that we are outiside a lot and inside a little and my summer obligations are racing towards me, I feel...totally overwhelmed. Between packing, readying this house to be rented, and some other things I said 'yes' to, well, I wanted to just sit down and worry yesterday. Luckily, I didn't!

Moshe was sick so Kable took the morning off so I could go to "Something for Moms", and lead our book study. When I got home he got a taste of my mood and took the afternoon off too! It was a sweet treat. We got our St Patrick's Day seeds planted (onions, spinach, lettuce and peas)
and I got to make Nigella Lawson's Irish Stew and Best Recipe's Irish Soda Bread.

We also took one small step in packing - getting all of the boys clothes that will not be needed in the next six monthes to my mom's house. We have a lot of clothes in every size and season from my maternity clothes to boys' size 8, including shoes and coats! A small but satisfying step.

We are all waiting for the big hole in the ground that means Grandma and Aunt S's house has been started and this is not a dream...

Happy Spring!

The contract has been signed, now we need the snow to melt...

Isaiah has kindergarten registration in in the district his Grandma Linda and Aunt Dee-Dee were in tomorrow...

We are moving to my grandmother's farm and are so excited. I want to document this for Kable and I, for the boys, and for our friends and relatives far away.
