We are getting neighbors. The land across the road was for sale for a while. Oh how I dreaded the thought of a trailer park going in there. Those seem to be popping up all over around here. People buying large parcels of land. Land that use to be someones farm, then splitting it up in to smaller pieces. People bring in trailers until that's all you see for miles. Not that there is anything wrong with trailers themselves. It's just seems that when you get a lot of them in an area, you end up with a few people who you really don't want to live beside. I just didn't want my "little house on the prairie" to be upset by "MTV cribs."
Anyway,(I kind of got off course)a young feller bought over 50 acres. Yea!!!!!! No splitting the farm up.But,(get ready for it)he told us today that the reason he bought the land was to homestead on. Double YEA!!!He and his soon to be wife are going to have their own little homestead too. With goats and milk cows and herbs and chickens and.....(I could go on and on.)I'm so excited. Now I can talk to someone face to face about the things that are important to me. I can tell them about how I am thinking about getting a milk goat and they won't look at me with a disgusted look on their face and say,"Why?" Triple YEA!!!!!!!We are already talking about swapping seeds and books about gardening. I couldn't have hand picked a better neighbor for us to have.
Now, what has been going on around here this week. First of all, I didn't realize that it has been so long since I last posted. Time just seems to be flying by. It's going to be (do I dare say it?) Christmas real soon. I would tell you what I'm going to get my family for presents this year but, they read this too. (No cheating Lil Sis!) Pretty soon we will be cranking up the wood burner for some serious heat. Already the nights are in the lower 50's. I love this time of year.
Boy, this post is all over the place. Since the garden has pretty well pooped out, I'm hoping to blog more. We shall see how that goes. lol
Until next time......
Small Farm Girl, neighbor.
