I have been restless lately…
As you may already know, I have been desperately wanting to get back to a traditional homestead and growing/raising our own foods…
But alas, this dream seems to elude me for the moment.
Instead, I believe my Creator is trying to teach me some things… like being content where I am… and working with what I have access to!
So, once again, I am embracing this lifestyle that we chose 4+ years ago!
If I can’t work the land, than I will work with what I have!
If I can’t grow my own food, I will buy from the local farmers, and preserve our foods by canning and dehydrating… and hone my skills at making foods from scratch!
I’ve got questions though!
Questions such as:
- Can I be happy and content where I am and with what I have?
- Will I be able to find local farmers willing to sell me their meat and produce?
- Can I hone my skills of canning and dehydrating?
- Will I be able to create delicious meals using foods from my business?
- Is it possible to make homemade pizza on the grill? (okay, I threw this question in for fun. But I do wonder if I can do it?)
These are things I am willing to explore!
And, if I am truly honest, Life in an RV does have its advantages!
For instance… we get to travel with most, if not all the comforts of home! And, if we decide it’s time to move on, we can simply pick up and move at a moments notice!
Plus, we have the added benefits of not having to pay property tax!
And, in addition to these benefits, most campgrounds do not charge for the utilities we use such as water, electric and sewer – unless, of course, we plan on staying for any serious length of time!
However, being content in my current situation does NOT mean I am giving up on my dream of a traditional homestead. Yes, it’s on the back burner for now… however, I will learn to work with what I have and share with you the ups and downs, the struggles and the triumphs of living life in an RV!
Until next time,
Peace, love and safe travels!
