Let It Go

My attachment to stuff has changed … 975 square feet, one closet, two dogs, north winds, a forest, dirt roads and ongoing construction will do that to a person.

This will be our third winter in the north woods and I can assure you that living in this much nature is best described as magical humility wrapped in gratitude and the best part hasn’t even happened yet.

It’s so nice to have things to look forward too.

missing, still hopeful.

Life in the North Woods

There wasn’t a plan for the saucer size spider on the kitchen floor.

I knew that I wouldn’t try anything that had to do with picking it up so I grabbed a mixing bowl, trapped it and stood there hoping that the bowl wouldn’t start moving … if it did I’d grab the dogs and we’re out of here.

Later that day, help arrived and the spider – still under the bowl – was released back into the forest unharmed.

Must be a wake up call to prepare for a face to face with a bear, wolf or a zombie.

Spiders
amen.

Wishful Thinking

Don’t be silly, you never know, even if you think you know, you still don’t know.

We’re all wishful thinkers and I’m pretty sure every wish – good or bad – appears as requested with a side of not so fast buster.

No problem …

Although the studio build is moving at a much slower pace than we planned, it’s been a once in a lifetime opportunity to watch Rob conquer every single trade that’s necessary to finish building this place in a perfect sleeping with the enemy kind of way … extraordinary. Not kidding and he knows it.

It turns out that living by the where there’s a will, there’s a way theory, even though the budget shrunk, looks pretty, pretty good … as always, somethings never change.

Dear Rob, you are my density. 😉

Such fun. Buzzy Potatoe
