New Blog Title and New Beginnings

I decided to take back the name I had originally picked for this blog. Evan and I came up with it because it fit our place and included two things that we have always loved - Little House on the Prairie and Winnie the Pooh.

This blog will just be a daily journal of our lives and the things that go on here at the Hundred Acre Wood. I realize I am indecisive and annoying to many of you for changing my mind all the time. I am still trying to figure out at thirty-eight who God has called me to be. I am working on embracing the personality I was given while working on my weaknesses.

This is a new year with new decisions and adventures in store for us. Glen will be losing his job in September and we will be heading in a new direction for our lives. We have decided that we will stay here in the house that we built. The house we spent countless hours deciding and drawing just how we wanted. This place is 'our' place - our dream house with our dream land.

 Making the decision to stay makes me want to put down my roots here. I have been holding back somewhat with not knowing about our future. Glen's job has been up in the air for two years now. Two years of having plans on hold and not wanting to spend money for fear of where we would end up. Now that we have definitely decided to stay, I want a new beginning for my blog and life journal.

I had dreams when we moved here and they were fading somewhat with our financial situation. We still don't have the money to do all I would like to do and that's okay. I have realized there are lots of things I can do that do not include a lot of money. Presently, we are working on an aquaponics system in our basement. I am excited to see if I can grow tomatoes all year and not just in the summer. I am wanting to get a compost started and build a clothesline. Chickens are just going to have to wait for another time. This girl has wanted chickens for years! I will be shouting with joy when I finally get them.

So, here's to a new year and new beginnings.
