Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

Our First Full Month

Today is our 1 month anniversary of being here in our log cabin.  We are so happy to be here, and loving every moment.  This is the place for us to be.

While walking to the mailbox yesterday, and realizing today would be 5/4/12, one month after our arrival, I found myself looking about and humming the tune "My Favorite Things".  The Sound of Music is one of my all time favorite musicals and movies, and as I walked, I found myself beginning to sing more of the musical's songs along my way.  It is one of my favorite things about being here, I can hum, sing & dance, all the way up and down my mountain, and no one gives a darn. Freedom to be! 

I have never been here at the cabin for this length of time.  And it seems like no time has passed at all!  I'm grateful to be here.  To experience what each day has to offer and what we in turn have to offer the day.  Happy to be here with my husband, Johny (Mountain Man), whom I love and appreciate.  And with Fluffy &  Pogo, who bring joy to our lives and they love it here as well.  We keep things simple.  We keep things basic.  We keep things natural and homemade.  We live off the land as much as we can.  We have mountain friends whom we learn from and enjoy.  We are surrounded by mountains that have charm and personality, and every moment of every day offers something different.

This morning, we woke to a gentle rain. After that, the mountains were ever changing throughout the day, as the pictures below depict.  I love this place.

Thank you for sharing this experience with me. I look forward to the next 11 months together, and all there will be to share. 

I'd like to encourage you to comment when you see something that interests you, or you have something you'd like to share.  One of my goals is to have more people sharing on the blog.  So please feel free.  If you have questions how to do that, don't hesitate to contact me at liseslogcabinlife@gmail.com

Thank you again, blog with you soon!

Thank you, I agree! Enjoy your weekend as well, although to be honest, every day feels like a weekend to me now:)
