We are all set for a Christmas break. I have wrapped a few gifts, cooked a little bit of food, decorated the house. Country Boy has assembled 50 meters of builders plastic, a bottle of detergent and a hose. He has big plans for a huge Christmas day slip and slide. So between us it looks like we have everything covered.
Just this week we marked three years since we started this country life experiment. My goodness life has taken some unexpected twists and turns in that time. Thank you all for following along in my little corner of the internet. On those days when I’m not sure why I’m out here in (almost) the middle of nowhere, this blog of mine always cheers me up.
Christmas day will be spent here on the farm with Country Boy’s family. I will be missing mine. It’s one of those things about living a long way from them. As we settle more and more into this life, I’m finding us less and less able to get to the mountains. I guess it means that we are settling in, and that this is our life now. We will be in the village church at 7.30 am to sing the great hymns that tell the greatest story ever told. The whole reason why we celebrate Christmas.
Where ever you find yourself this Christmas, have a happy and holy Christmas from all of us here on our farm!
Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
