Sounds Romantic, doesn't it?
If only life could be so accommodating to our desires, all the time.
I just have to trust in Fate (this time).
|Our "dream" house... SOLD to someone else but that's okay.|
I looked it up this morning and the taxes were OMG! Phew!
Where am I going with this?
As Fate has it, the job potential in Boise is a no-go for my Man (bummer).
I am a bit sad, but,
there must be a reason why.
"Everything always happens (or doesn't) for a reason", right?
So, instead of wishing and dreaming about my
idyllic life that I would like to have, I am going to
Bloom Where I'm Planted.
Thank you, Mary Engelbreit, for coining that phrase.
I am going to make it happen, right here, where we are, right now!
My very accommodating raised beds vs. an acre parcel of plowing and daily weeding
My 3 or 4 hens vs. two separate coops. One for layers and one for fryers
(yes, we will be having some babies soon!)
My future black HEN vs. my black Rooster (sigh)
Taking the kids on pony rides vs. the cost of owning and upkeep
(that ones a toughie, I love the smell of horses)
Planting English Roses in Pots vs. Sticking them in the ground
Revamping the home to a Cottage feel vs. Waiting till we live in a Cottage
(that'll be a fun one to blog about)
I could go on, but I think you get the idea.
My business is flourishing,
and although I am usually restricted with my "alone" time to work,
I manage just fine... especially when there's a deadline (thanks to coffee)!
HM. I don't think I'm sad anymore.
I have set some goals and I am achieving them.
That's the most important thing.
The website is up (well, my generic one for the time being), and though it's not full of my wares as of yet, I am working on it. :)
I guess my reasoning for this post is to say, out loud, more so for myself, but if it applies to you, yay!, that I am happy for what I have, in the now.
I still have the dream (desire) to have our Cottage on acreage, by a lake,
and I know we will one day have that.
Today though, we are exactly where we are meant to be.
So, come see me here in a few weeks!
