I don't regret coming here, but the timing is making things very difficult. More on that later.
My winter garden is flourishing under the heavy frosts. Banshee Holler stays warmer than up top of the ridge. This has been a nice bonus. Though I know it will be cooler longer come spring and I will have to heat my soil to grow early crops.
We had our first snow fall.
Not a whole lot as you can tell. Just enough to get our attention.
The mornings have been heavy on the frost. Which makes getting out of my driveway easier. It's when the rains come or the frost melts that I get to go muddin' just to get up top.
Last week Husband went deer hunting for the very first time. He came back 1 1/2 hours later with a small buck. He had mistakened it for a medium sized doe. Either way we have meat. One can only live off of tuna for so long.
I really haven't met too many people here yet. We have been going to theis "biker" themed restaurant and bar on the weekends. Mainly for clientele. We can't really afford it, sticking with coffee for the most part. But we need to try to wrangle some clients. Things here move so much slower than I am use to. And it has me frustrated at times. Husband fits in well. He is so laid make that it doesn't faze him much. And honestly, if things don't pick up soon. . . Well I am a bit frightened what might happen.
Right now we can not afford the line needed to finish the solar project. We still live by lamp light. It's trying at times, enjoyable at others. But frustrating when needed.
I managed to gather chestnuts this weekend. I will have a post dedicated to that soon.
The transition from Kansas to Kentucky hasn't been as smooth as one could hope for. Time will tell if this was turely the right desicion.
