An unexpected turn of events

Well, we are no longer at the farm in Idaho.  We've moved to a rental farmhouse in Oregon.  Not at all what I planned or expected.  But then, you never know where Go might take you once you start walking   We are living only three miles from Jenny's parents, which is part of the reason we moved.  There are several pros an cons to this move, but in general I'm happy with it.  We've brought two Jersey cows, our three purebred Saanan goats, and a couple of goat kids.  There is a beautiful spring fed creek running through the pasture and you can see the Eagle Cap mountain range on a clear day.  I can't really complain. 

We also have internet at the house!  Maybe I'll start to revitalize this blog. 

It'll be a challenge for me to meet an make new friends, but I went to a nice potluck breakfast this morning with some new friends in recovery and I'm sure I'll make friends through church. 

I've been  making a lot of cheese lately.  Some of my most recent adventures in cheesemaking have been a Guoda an a Romano.  The temperature is not right to age them correctly, but i'm hoping they turn out.  I need to buy a "wine refrigerator" with good temperature an humidity controls.  Something that woul allow me to age the cheeses at about 50 degrees with 80% humidity.  I'll keep you posted.

Hopefully I can find the time to blog more often now that I have internet at home.

Until next time, blessed be.
