“We’ve been busy” doesn’t begin to give justice to just how busy we’ve been this Summer. Between us both working full-time jobs in town, 9 animals to care for at home, and a gigantic garden that needs attention, and generally keeping an off-the-grid homestead up and running, we haven’t had much time for anything else! Every once in awhile we get to hang out with a friend or something, haha.
August 29th was our 2 year off-the-gridiversary! We celebrated with a bonfire, a bottle of homemade mead from R’s Mom (thanks Jodie!), a couple of cheap cigars, brats, and reminiscing on how far we’ve come in 2 years. We love our homestead, our land, and our lifestyle more every day. Ok, some days are harder than others, but generally, this is pretty awesome. We have no intention of going back to how “normal people live” anytime soon.
We have about a billion things to do before Winter comes, and right now I’m only taking a quick break from working outside to have a beer and throw out some updates! So here’s a bunch of pictures to tide you over! Happy September!
