The Little Things--On the Verge of Country Living


Husband and the boys just left with the second U-Haul of belongings.  The reality that many things are changing today has me anxious.  I am thrilled for the start of this next adventure, but there will be plenty of adjustments.  Wood burning and pellet stove, no more quick trips to the store or one minute access to the freeway...you get my drift.  Oh, and I've been keeping this one far in the back of my mind...slow Internet? 
Is that what Husband said?  Heavens.  Lord help me.

But today, there are still the little things.

Waking up to a blanket of snow.
No school.
No appointments.
No obligations, except for packing up the rest of the last two years of our lives here in our culdesac.
The anticipation that tomorrow means no neighbors staring into our backyard, or to be seen or heard for that matter.  We are people-people, but we're people who want more privacy than suburban living allows.
The fact that any snow in our future will be double the amount of snow we've been used to--which really isn't much here in Camas, Washington.
Moving toward more sustainable living.
Hot cocoa after playing in the snow.
Friends who are willing to help us uproot our lives to a new location. 
With that said, I am especially thankful for men with strong, sturdy backs.

Now I must go.  Wish me luck! 
With MANY adventures in store,
Cassie

Hey, if you are living out in the sticks, there will be nothing to distract you from your writing!

Jealous you're living away from neighbors, when we bought our town house I didn't think I would feel like I was being watched, always.

Have fun setting up and decorating your new house. :)

Your mom mentioned to me the other day that you guys were gearing up to move. And then I said a little prayer for you. It is such an adjustment moving. No matter how happy or easy the move goes, it is still overwhelming.

I am happy for you guys! I look forward to seeing and hearing more about your new place.

Hugs!

I have no doubt that once you adjust, you will seriously love it. Thinking of you today, wishing I could be there to offer help unpacking...

Fly, lovely bird.
You deserve this.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
