Onward and upward.

March 15, 2014

Well so the saying goes “Onward and Upward”. To this end we have decided to move upward, that is North. From the very south we are moving 1.5 hours north. 

It came as a bit of a surprise, we had not expected for everything to happen so quickly or to find the right place.

Rick has quit his job and we will be moving during the end of June to a a different way of life. No more shift work and no more city life. We have taken a farm job and will be living 30 minutes out of a more country town in Southland. We can certainly see Gods hand in this as it all unfolded, which shouldn’t have come as a surprise but did. We had made the decision to look elsewhere for a job that didn’t have shift work and would be  better health and family life. But the path that lead down was unexpected, we will be working on a dairy farm, milking cows and doing general farm work.

Certainly no shift work , and outdoors( good for your health) and lots of time with family. Having to get up to cows at 5 in the morning is not everyone’s cup of tea but certainly will be ours. The goats and all the animals will come along and I’m sure if they knew the brand new homes that await they would be very excited too. Paddocks for goats and chickens and new digs for the rabbits well perhaps no digging but new homes and a run for them. The bees get to have a whole new banquet and the dog and cats all have new and exiting places to hide and run.

Our girls will have new things to do and learn, younger girl gets to go to a new school and older one will perhaps learn other farming things.

We still will live by our general homesteading principals, and definitely more so since there is no shop down the road. Lots to learn and appreciate about being in the country.
