Well, it's been almost a year since my last post. In the meantime, not much has happened. I knitted, I worked, Chloe has grown. I guess we all have. I've begun thinking seriously about living a simpler lifestyle in the country. Plans have been made to stash away money to buy a parcel of land up north. I think we're going to build a small house or cabin without utility water or electricity. Jon is on board with the idea of living off the grid, since it's a lifestyle he's always talked about. Something tells me it won't be simpler though, just different. We'll start with calling it a cabin, and build a small structure to visit on the weekends. Then, hopefully, we'll sell our house and move up there permanently. The cabin will become my studio, but we'll live in it while we build a larger structure for our house. Oh, the dream stage, how I love you!
