I woke up this morning to the sound of Sandhill Cranes flying over my house and glorious sunshine pouring into the windows. The holiday season is officially over and I have only netted 2 pounds of extra weight. The house is not so messy as to feel out of control and my eldest son provided the family with a deer worth of venison for the year.
I feel like this is going to be a really good year. We have a solid plan for improving the property and for becoming more independent from the worst aspects of society while becoming more reliant on our surrounding community. Let freedom ring!
I do have one sad note to relay. The father of a dear friend of mine passed away this week. Jon Walters was a great man and a wonderful father, he will be sorely missed, even by people like me who rarely saw him. Take heart dear Summer. We are here for you. You've Got a Friend
