Home is where you hang your big _ _ _ sunflower wreath…

Future Farm plans…

I made this sunflower wreath to hang on the front door.  I had NO idea that it was going to be so BIG!  It takes up like almost half the door…this picture does not do it justice…

As they say, “Home is where…

  • you hang your hat.”
  • your heart is.”
  • love resides, memories are made, friends are always welcome and family is forever.”

 For the past (almost) 5 years, our home has been a rented house in Moscow, Idaho.  It is an ideal location, close to the Elementary and Middle schools that the boys attend(ed).  At the beginning of January, the leasing company told us that the owner was thinking about selling the house we are living in.  He was to make a decision within the next 2 weeks.  At the end of the month, I went down to the leasing agency and put our rent check in the designated box.  Then, I asked if they had heard anything about our house being put up for sale.  They were not sure and reassured me that they were going to check in with the owner and let me know within the next 2 week.  The end of February, I went down to the leasing office and put our rent check in the box…same conversation.  End of March…same conversation…I think you can see where this is going.  I was getting extremely anxious the middle of April.  I needed to make plans for the summer and if we needed to locate a new house to rent and move….well, that was going to be a BIG event for our family.

Finally, we got the call.  The owner is going to extend our lease until March 30, 2017.  Whew…

Our original plan was to start looking for a house/farm/property when Mark turns 17.  Mark is currently 15 and his birthday is in January.  It would be silly to start looking for a place to rent for 1 year…(especially in March in a college town.)  So, it appears that our property search has been moved up a year.  In a lot of ways, I think this could be more beneficial for us in the long run.  It will give us plenty of time to get settled and have a full year to view the property and identify problem areas…weeds, water logged areas…anything that might need attention.  I would hate to put a chicken coop in an area the floods when we get 1/4 inch of rain…

So, we will be looking to take our big sunflower wreath to a new home next year!
