Finally moved to our mini Farm

Its been a busy month so far,
We are starting our 3rd week in our new home, or as I like to call it our mini farm. Moving weekend was one weekend I do not wish to relive anytime soon. There is nothing like moving a house to realize that your older and more out of shape than you had previously thought, I think I lost about 18 pounds in that first day. We packed everything into the 26ft truck furniture and all in about 8 hours. Luckily I had an unexpected few months to box up most of our stuff.  Ill never understand why a refrigerator is so heavy but I am still recovering from the bruises our fridge inflicted on me.
I can say we are for the most part unpacked here, except for my Etsy supplies and a slight overflow room, which is eventually going to be a guest/hobby room. We have no decorations up yet except for a little here and there, I am waiting for the better half to decide what she wants where.

The 3 acres of land are fun but quite a bit of work. We hired a great local guy to clear some of the overgrown bushes and areas I don't think anyone has been for a long time. I have also spent the last 2 weeks clearing a small garden plot are for fall vegetables, Although I may have put out some baby plants a little early since its about 99 degrees out today. I also have 3 different lavender plants and such for the herbal garden, That I have yet to build.

Finally this weekend we got Ashlynn a puppy. Jen found a Boston terrier mixed with we think maybe a boxer that was rescued from a kill shelter.  She is very cute, and only 11 weeks old. I will have photos soon, She is quite a handful, especially with our little rug rat. It is quite a fun moment when they are chasing each other around the whole house for a half hour.

On a side not my Etsy shop will be opening soon, I think I have figured out a schedule where I can get a little time to do some things for myself around here. I am however in the process of returning to the workforce as well.

It seems I like to to about a million things at once.
Well its seems my short amount of quiet time today is at an end as the baby monitor is squawking at me
Look forward to more posts as it seems that blogging helps me get focused on all the things floating around in my head.
Have a great Monday,
