One week ago tonight was our first night here in the fiver. It’s been a good week. We’ve gotten used to our new routine and the reality of living out here while we’re still having to go to work and keep to a work schedule.
Believe it or not, this afternoon we took another five bags of clothes and shoes to the drop off box. I can’t believe we have anything left! But we do. Upstairs in the bedroom, we have just our work clothes left. Here in the fiver, we have the clothes that we plan to keep. There is plenty of room for everything we need.
Some of the items they wouldn’t take, so I put them up on freecycle when I got home and have already had emails from people interested in them. I would expect by tomorrow afternoon, they will all be gone.
In the meantime, Harry was up washing the roof. I always get nervous when he is up there, so I make him wait until I am home to go up and do stuff.
I’m not sure that it helps to have me home, but I feel better!
It was a beautiful day, and it has turned into a beautiful evening. When I am going to sleep at night in the fiver, and my window is open, I can hear the crickets, birds and other assorted wildlife. I already feel closer to nature, and we’re still sitting in the driveway!
