you all already know how long home renovation can take. now go ahead and adjust that taking into account we took on a home long since occupied with a budget hugely inadequate. somehow, for some reason, we got hooked on this place.
it has been one year, almost to the day, since we ran our successful crowdfunding campaign. it has been a year of plumbing and wiring and tiling and woodworking alongside a year of farming and family and fiber and all sorts of other tasks that can easily fill a farmwife’s day. i thought it was high time for an update. high time indeed.
now we prepare to host the first family thanksgiving at the hill and hollow farm stay. we can’t wait to welcome our california cousins for the days that are sure to be memorable. there are many tasks that lie ahead: too numerous to catalog here. we will spend the time between now and then setting up propane and sourcing a good cook stove, cutting and stacking firewood, covering the insulation. we will make it ready to be warm and celebratory. after all, we have come a long way and there is much to be thankful for.
