Going Zoning in that Whole New Zone

Postby Ashiwi » Fri Aug 26, 2005 8:53 pm

I'm getting ready to fulfill a long-time dream of mine by packing up and moving back to the country. I picked up 3.4 acres a couple of miles outside of this teeny tiny town, and I'm loading the moving van tomorrow. I have no clue as to when I might be back online, as the area is very rustic and I will have a LOT to take care of long before I even begin to consider an internet connection. I've picked up my organic gardening books, researched several plans on ergonomic housing for when I begin to build (moved a mobile home out there in the interim and I already feel like my name should be changed to Betty Lou), and bought myself a new fishing pole, as my property is less than a mile away from the lake. Actually, purchasing a boat is higher on my list of things to do than installing satellite internet is.

I grew up in the country, and I'm very excited about this big step. I already have the garden plotted, am drawing up plans for the chicken coop, and know how many goats I have to buy in order to keep the brush in the wooded half of the property under control. I've picked up plans for building a windmill, and have been checking into the possibility of installing solar panels. I plan on trying to appreciate a sky full of stars every single night.

Should anybody wish to contact me, Lilithelle has mentioned that she will be happy to pass along any messages. I've gotten most of the contact info of the people I'd really love to keep in touch with, but there are still a few I'm missing. I'm going to try to make myself write a little every day, as it's a habit I've gotten out of since I've been mudding, and I'm looking forward to having more time and fewer distractions so that I can get back to it.

Hugs and smooches to all. I'll be back when I can. In the meantime, if you guys are ever looking for a weekend getaway by the lake, I'll leave a spot open for you in my guest room. Somebody drink a beer with Dartan in celebration, and I'll be sitting on my porch by Sunday night drinking a beer and thinking of all of you.

P.S. I'm gonna name one of the goats "Gormal" as a fond memory of you, Jake.

Butbutbut... You don't understand... I'm getting pygmy goats, and they're cute and adorable, and you can't help but like them! I'm not making you a goat-lover... I'm making you a goat that I'm going to feed and take care of and it will make me think of you each time I see how cute it is.

And anybody who touches my Gormie in the wrong way will have to face my wrath!

Now PM me your info!

Give me your tia amulet and i'll upgrade it to wine! But in all seriousness, I really do forget why I dislike you. Good luck with your farm. I find it kinda courageous that you're changing your lifestyle like that and hope all is well in your new adventure. I mean all that!
It will be fixed in Toril 2.0.

Beautiful.!!

But hey, you said teeny tiny. C'mon, I saw a stoplight in the pic. That's not tiny!

(Enjoy the peace, hope it suits you well.)

Don't forget your tornado repellent! hehe, just kidding - it sounds absolutely lovely and I must admit I'm a little jealous as the whole idea makes me feel like a pathetic urban dweller.

Doh! Pioneer Days is just a little over 3 weeks away. How are we all going to swoop into town for it with such little time. . .oh well, there is always next year (gotta go practice my hog callin').

Just kidding Ash, actually Pioneer days looks kinda fun. I'm sure you will love your new place.

Hugz.

I just called to say I love you. I just called to say how much I care. I just called to say I love you, and I mean it from the bottom of my heart.


Skiatook has a library with computers, imagine that. Of course the library is only one room, but there are eight computers! No telnet, though. Sure do miss you guys.

I'll come help you turn up the potatoes sometime and we can sing 'down on the farm'.
Teflor does. Teflor does not.
