I have the very best kind of news to share - we have found our forever home! And it's ours! There it is above, as seen from the back field. Our current house hasn't sold yet (feel free to buy it!) but we have the most perfect place for us. An old farmhouse, with two big new barns (hello, chickens!) on 40 acres, including fields, woods, and a camp on the lake. I know. The house needs a lot of work, so we're not really sure of timelines for moving or anything, but it's ours! Here are a few pictures I took this morning.
The lake, perhaps my favourite feature. Above, looking North from in front of the camp.
And looking South. Isn't it lovely?
And here's the 'before' shot of the camp, as it was early this morning when I arrived to clean up, whipper snip, and generally make it fit to be in. It will be properly Sherrie-fied over time, but I kind of love its rustic-ness. That's the whole point of a camp, really. It's now a lot tidier, and after round two tomorrow morning, will almost be inhabitable. Any suggestions or ideas for an extremely rustic camp with very limited space, an outhouse and no electricity? Camping tips? Must-have gadgets? Outhouse maintenance? This is all quite new to me. I'm so excited that we have the camp to use this summer. The boys will love it. They haven't been there yet - I can't wait to see their faces.
