A New Era Emerges

It's been an eventful week.  Lots of running around and getting things done.  We closed on our new property on Friday.  We are now official home owners in Hernando, Florida.  WOW, we now have multiple properties.  We are very blessed.

We spent Saturday with the sellers.  Training on the irrigation system, seeing what they will need to leave behind for us to clear, keep or donate.  Walking through the orchard and learning about the care of the trees, and which ones need to be removed.  Meeting some neighbors and making new friends.

We are slowly learning the lay of the land and the area which will soon be our new homestead.  Bruiser accompanied us on our trip to show him the property.  He exhausted himself walking the property, investigating the pond, tractor, and sheds.

Now we begin the task of clearing out our current home.  We need to decide what we keep,sell, donate, leave and pass on to the kids.  After 17 years in our current home there is a lot of stuff to declutter.  The kids will be renting the house, so what we don't take right away won't be an issue, we have some time.

Right now it's all about research and learning what I need to know about having a hobby farm.  Chickens, bees, pigs, orchard, vineyard, vegetable garden, goats.  Good grief there is a lot to learn, but I'm excited to begin this new chapter in our lives.
