Moving Day has been finalized! I have not had to uproot my home since it has landed, so I find myself filled with a bit of anxiety. At the same time I am tremendously ecstatic! It is still a bit muddy on my dirt road, so I find myself worrying about that a bit. However, the forecast for the upcoming week looks fantastic so all should go well.
Today I finished stacking and organizing some of the wooden pallets near the entry to the back yard of The Hive (the nickname of the house). Kass had put me to the task so that I could make certain my house would fit through the gates, and further into the yard. I brought Kim over and she was a good sport and helped me clear stuff out. I was impressed at some of the items we found. There was an entire bike rack hidden under the pallets, I find myself still pondering how we could repurpose it in a fun way.
While Kim and I were reorganizing pallets, Eowyn was putting the walls on the outdoor greenhouse and Logan was swinging in his outdoor swing. Jada and Riley were chasing one another in the yard around the garden as Logan laughed at their antics. Earlier that day Eowyn had advised me that she had acquired some German Chamomile seeds, I cannot wait to get the tea garden started!
After Kim and I were done stacking the pallets in the side yard, Eowyn and I wandered around the yard discussing where we were going to put my compost pile for my composting toilet. With the extra pallets I can construct a housing for the compost after digging in a spot for it. This will be really nice, as I will finally have a permanent set up. I find myself wanting to reread the Humanure Handbook to brush up on the details of constructing a compost area.
After discussing a number of ideas for the chickens, garden, The Fortune Cookie and the upcoming move, Eowyn, Logan, Kim and myself wandered inside. Eowyn pulled out some vegetarian chili she had pre-made and frozen. She tossed that on the stove while we had some tea. Again, Eowyn is an excellent cook, the chili was ridiculously good.
With full bellies, Kim and I said our goodbyes to Eowyn and Logan. On the ride home we chatted sleepily about how nice it will be when I finally live there. Also adding that it will be exciting to put a lot of the gardening information that was learned at the South Sound Sustainability Expo into practice.
