Dreaming of the Country Life

What a beautiful weekend we had. The weather reached 20C. We got a lot of yard work done, mostly moving snow, which is now gone. Yay! We even had our first "beer on the deck", or wine as the case may be. It was glorious. Paul got a little sunburn on his head and has now resigned to the fact he must wear a hat. We say the reason he is losing his hair is because he has so much testosterone!

We took an afternoon drive back out to the house to see if the bathrooms were done, and they were. The doors and closet doors were all hung too. Now we are just waiting on the hardwood and then it is complete!

As much as I love the house I live in now, I am looking forward to having a new house that doesn't have leaky taps and foggy windows. More than that, I am looking forward to living in the country. My heart lies there and it has for as long as I remember. (Remember if there is such a thing as re-incarnation, I KNOW I was a farm wife in a past life.) 
Just being out of town, seeing nothing but landscape, fills me up like nothing else.

"Soon enough" I keep telling myself. "Soon enough."
PS I found out there aren't any ticks in the Battleford area. I do hope it is true.
