We survived the move!

Yes, we survived! The movers are coming again tomorrow with our stuff that has been sitting in storage for a year.

I am sitting in my new office (which has TWO WINDOWS! It used to be the front parlour), looking at our front fields planted in soybeans that are destined for tofu. It is lovely here and very peaceful, and at night we have a 360-degree view of the dark, dark sky, pretty well right down to the horizon. I can't wait to get the telescope set up!

The cats are reallllly, reallllly happy. They are happy-like-they-have-been-taking-happy-drugs happy! I think they are pleased to be in a house bigger than 700 SF: more personal space, fewer territorial disputes. Even the new king-size bed is larger. And they like tearing up and down the stairs, and Julius especially loves the wide windowsills. Right now he is on the bathroom one, basking in the sun, waiting for us to set up his kitty palace so that he can go outside and try to lure country chipmunks into his den.

And what do I like? TWO BATHROOMS! Hahahahahaha!

Stay tuned in the coming months and years for ADVENTURES IN FARMING: Watch the girl born in Toronto do wild and crazy things as a neophyte farmer! :)

I feel very happy to be here, and very lucky. It feels like home at last.


  1. Congratulations on your successful move. You have read (or heard, or watched) Letter From Wingfield Farm, haven't you?

    finally FINALLY some news!!! I was getting so desperate to hear about the move that I was even thinking of CALLING you! hahhaha ... well the thought did cross my mind. I have that internet phone, Skype.

    I'm soooo happy to hear that everyone is in love with the new place. Now we need PICTURES so we can see your new office ...and how your furniture fits etc.

    How absolutely wonderful the dark nights and the 360 view of the sky. The telescope will be GREAT there.

    how exciting!! I won't be able to hear enough about the new place. :)) keep us informed! nk

  4. I'm so happy that move went well and that the cats are enjoying their new spacious abode. I can't wait to see pictures and stories about farm life. Congratulations on finding the home of your dreams.

    Congratulations Natalie! I'm so glad that you are finally ensconced on your farm! What an amazing adventure you're beginning!

    I'll look foward to tales of Julius luring poor, unsuspecting chipmunks into his den, and of Zoe tearing around the house.
