As if we didn't have enough going on here these past few weeks with the excitement of our well getting put in, our landlord decided it was time to put the house we are renting up for sale. We had mentioned to him last fall that we were planning to get moved out to our property the following late summer, so he was aware of our plans. Being as springtime is upon us, it made sense for him to list the house on the market.
As much as I know it is best for him to list the house now, we still aren't quite ready to move out to our property. After all, we just now got the well dug, and a house is nowhere in sight!
My husband came face to face with one of these cats while cutting down some trees. They had a staring contest, and.... my husband won! The cat turned and left. Whew! All he had was a chainsaw, guess that would have been better than a rock!
We enjoy the deer coming through - except when they found my garden last year! Then, I wasn't so happy about them!
We saw a big guy just like this just a mile or so away from our property, and have seen many elk tracks through our property. Amazingly, they all disappear right around hunting season!
And we have seen a moose with her newly born calf that was born close by our property. They came to our property, and settled down, eating quite a few of our trees, making themselves at home for about a week or so in our woods. Of all the animals and wildlife we have that visit, a moose is perhaps the one to think twice about. They are very curious animals, and because of their size, can go and do just about whatever they choose.
And we can't forget about the gaggle of turkeys that visit several times a day.
So what do you think? A tent? It's very possible, but probably not likely.
More likely it will be something like this:
After living in a large 5 bedroom home for several years now.... downsizing is going to be fun, don't you think?
Our family has decided that we are going to make the best of things, and turn this into an adventure! I'll keep you posted on how that works. :)
