    Gonna miss some things here

    The view from the shop will be no more
    The simple glimpse out the shop door, giving a rush of memories of design and build of doors,
    doors I had no idea would work so well, let alone the aesthetics to my complete satisfaction



    A lota happenings occurred during this leg of my being

    never seen so many deer
    badger
    bobcat
    cougar
    bear
    birds..so very many

    ‘Course I’ll always have the memories…well, not always, probably

    But

    For awhile

    Even during the most arduous of chores, I’d pause a bit, rest, look, enjoy
    I won’t have a goodly portion of that in town

    But

    There will be joys
    New experiences
    Time

    Time to actually write

    I’ve compiled scads of events, thoughts

    Heh, I’ll prolly scrap those and start all over

    I will use those for memory jogs, however

    Anyway, getting close to moving day

    Nothing will be the same here

    And it shouldn’t be

    It’d be a bit of a bore

    And THAT…would be a travesty


    Our little bungalow may become a prison

    As well it should

    Otherwise,

    I’ll never put another book together



    I wonder if my little buddy will miss me

    Gary, I've been gone for awhile and haven't kept up with your thread. Are you moving from your place? Has something happened where you need to live closer to town? I hope you or your wife aren't having any health problems.

    None at all

    Just not really into another winter

    Five winters at five/six feet of snow and ice is enough

    The challenges have been met

    The discomfort of getting warm has begun to outweigh the pristine beauty

    For the first few years, we’d sit here, looking rather smug at each other, all warm and cozy,
    with the confidence that we weren’t going to freeze to death in our rockers after all.

    But

    The toil of that seasonal achievement has worn a bit

    Time to write about it all

    Heh, my book in the making has taken a very realistic slant

    The downsides of off grid living in the bush

    Gonna be a fun write
