Good Enough ?

Melissa and I get complimented on the new place fairly often, and for some reason this is especially true lately. As you might expect we never get tired of this....I don't know anyone who *doesn't* like to hear praise when someone is complementing their choice of real estate, but at the same time it's kind of embarrassing because when Melissa and I look at the place we see everything that remains to be done. To us, it's a work that is still very much in progress.



With a couple of exceptions, most of what remains to be done could be considered "finish" work. We need to change the grade in a couple of spots, we could always use a few more loads of gravel and we need to work away at finishing some of the interior spaces in a couple of our buildings. Truthfully, it'd be nice to add a couple of lean-to's to some of our existing structures too, and there is always fence to paint, etc, etc, etc. Most of this stuff will get done eventually, but as much as our Type A personalities would like to get it all done right now I think Melissa and I are taking the winter off from any more construction projects. Maybe after years of marriage and working together we're finally learning that there is sanity in saying, " Good enough." It's a nice thought, anyway. Stay tuned for more !





Have you hugged your goat today ? Jason and Jo enjoying a treat.

Good enough is a hard concept for many of us . . .

Must get more gravel . . .

Hey guys!

Do you have a plan to build a house at the new farm eventually? I've been wondering since the build started!!

I think Eric is at the "good enough" phase with our barn. Me, not so much. HA! Everything has been dumped into the barn this year. (Money/emotions/blood, sweat/tears!) (Eric: I hurt my finger w the drill. Me: how bad? Eric: bad enough to have to *back it out*!!) litterally blood and maybe a tear. Lol!!!

There's a time when good enough will have to be. We've made huge improvements from where it was 1.5 yrs ago.

I love your place. From the photos...it's so amazingly beautiful! I appreciate that you're both so good at sharing your work with us, your adoring fans ;)
Now...what I want to know is, is Jason giving Jo a triscuit. AKA: goat crack. Lol

Hi Codi, that is in the plans once we finally complete all of our infrastructure. One thing at a time!
