I have been intrigued these last few years by other people, mostly bloggers, who have a theme word or phrase for the new year. I have not done this myself, just because nothing really came to mind. With the new year, I've been seeing quite a few people sharing again. This time a phrase keeps sticking in my mind: Fly Free.
I'm not entirely sure why this is, but I can't get it out of my mind. Fly Free. For this nest-loving person, it's a bit of an odd idea. I'd much rather just cozily sit in my perch and fluff the stuffin' and love on my little chickadees.
This will be a year though that I think I will truly need to stretch my wings. I have been uprooted and pried from my comfortable nest already. I've been trying to nest in other perches with some success and am looking forward to the upcoming migration--which sounds better than another move--to a place with room to soar.
I don't know what this will all end up like, even this blog will probably change. But I am excited. I thought the people that bought our home last spring were a bit crazy to move to a place one of them had never even walked through. Now I am the crazy one. It looks like we will be closing on the home in Idaho by the 17th and move in by the end of the month. And, no, I've never been to Idaho.
I am so looking forward to have room for all the things we've been dreaming of doing for years! We'll have just over five acres, a pond, a barn, and a beautiful grove of trees. I have all sorts of ideas and projects running through my brain, not the least of which is painting everything in sight. ;) And Sweetheart has said he'll even paint the gables green for me.
Thanks for sticking with me these last months. I know blogging has been sporadic and not as I would like. I did add a page with some of the Simple Living blogs I wrote in the past. It's not all pretty yet, but it's there. I am looking forward to sharing our new life with you all as I Fly Free.
