Weekly Update: 3.18.23

This week feels like a return to winter, with so many days being downright freezing. We still bundled up on Sunday and got a little work done, as we needed to take some supplies out to our site and didn’t want to wait another week with our trailer parked in town.

We also needed to plant the apple trees that arrived last week. Bonnie-Jean and our sister-in-law, Erin, took on this project. Bonnie-Jean will post more about the planting later this week.

The rest of us worked on putting trim on the shed and building the shed doors. We got such a late start, we didn’t finish. But we made good progress.

I was looking forward to finishing the shed this weekend, but with the windchill, it’s just too cold to work much outside. We are redeeming the time, ordering supplies, fine-tuning bunkbed plans, and planning our garden. Submitting to the weather is part of living a lifestyle close to the earth. It can be frustrating, but we have learned that extra time for detailed planning is a real blessing in the end.
