Returning to blogging from the land of the unbloggable

Obviously, I haven't been blogging.

I've always tried to blog about the joyous things in our lives, as a record of our lives, for my kids and far flung family. In the past year I've been wrestling with a lot of unbloggable dark stuff from my childhood and once I decided to confront it, blogging about the simple joys felt too much like a cover.

So I needed to step away.

I'm ready to move on and get back to blogging.

The big news is that we're moving! We've bought a farmhouse with a barn on a half acre with a further 2.5 acres we can use for grazing our livestock. We move end of June! I've set up a blog for it, and we'll move our blog at the same time.

The kids are all very excited, even Darkmirror who dislikes change - he gets a beautiful view of the Gaspereau Ridge and the winery's fields of grapes from his bedroom window.

In the meantime here are a few pictures from my last download from the camera

Wild Thing and Darkmirror cook dinner together once a week (or so...we're working on regularity!). They make "This is why you're fat" big manly bad for you meals - like these insane nachos.

wild Thing, Nature Girl and sprout have given up civilization at bedtime and are sleeping in a gypsy camp they've made in the basement. They're all itching to go camping again!

Wild Thing and his first sandy wet toes of the season. The day I took this he arrived at the beach in a down filled coat and winter boots. The water was about 3 degrees? He had an AWESOME time.

It's good to be back.

Yay! You're blogging again. I'm so happy you got the farm - you needed something good to think about and work towards.

Yay! Indeed! It's good to see you back blogging. That's got to be a positive sign. And you have what sounds like a fabulous new place to move into. Moving into a new place is always so cleansing and refreshing -- for me anyway. I hope it will be for you guys, too.
