A New Beginning.

Sometimes you go away and take a little break and don't come back for a year and a half.

It's kinda like going to the garden to bring out the compost after breakfast and not coming back in till you're starving for lunch. That's just what happens to me sometimes.  My short break from blogging went a little longer than I thought it would...time just slipped by and I was busy doing lots of fun things and then the more time went by the harder it was to get started again.

So here I am.  Some dear friends have been nagging...I mean... gently encouraging me to get back to work and I thought today was as good a day as any other.

This building is the newest addition to our farm buildings built by our SIL.  It's a10x10 - the largest we could legally build without a permit and it's right next door to my garden.  It's a peaceful spot for tea with a friend or a place to sit and sort seeds and it held my vegetable plants for a few weeks when the house was overflowing in early spring.  It has a tin roof so it's also a great place to sit and listen to the rain. We found the old windows and the French door in the garage when we moved here.  As much as possible was recycled but I did want a leak proof roof so that was new.

It's filled with tools and gardening bits and bobs plus an old wooden table and chairs dragged off the side of the road and brought home by my loving husband who knew I would find a spot  and a use for it.   The Sweets & Treats sign was repurposed from my daughters wedding last year.

I still look around myself every day and am filled with gratitude for this life we've made here out in the country.  Next week we will have been here 5's as good as I imagined and better!

I'm looking forward to sharing some of the things I've learned...I've just got to run out to the garden with the compost - be right back!
