So close, so close and yet so far.
When I last left you I was a sad little puppy when it came to progress on The Mothership. As if! The Dream Team comes in great waves, they all converge and knock out more than I could ever imagine and then they all go away. It's insane. Cord says we have about 10 days left on it but he can't do all 10 days in a row.
I am a patient person. I am tapping in deep to my resources to stay patient. It's been 3.5 years. Can't have it till I can have it. Can't have 70' of tropical food forest until I can have 70' of tropical food forest. Without ever using any fuel. I know this. I don't wring my hands. I wait. And use my magical powers to make The Dream Team converge. Here. At the same time.
Over the holidays they worked the entire time. I cooked and painted and cooked and painted and cooked. To Cord, Max, Beau and Wulfgar - you guys are the best. Thank you for your continuous work on this project and for making my dreams come true.
I AM IN MY SEED ROOM!!!!
This is the best part. Over the holidays - the Seed Room was finished. I put down flooring and began moving in immediately. 7 car-loads later (SUV) the piles and piles of seed in all of it's glory - was inside the room - breathing in and out.
I go to work in my Seed Room - like people do. Sometimes I carry a basket with my various items like Little Red Riding Hood and sing a song on the path through the trees as I walk along. I sip tea and clean seed or play John Denver and dance around the room while making labels. I am slowly putting my bulk seed into jars on the shelves on the wall. It is the most beautiful room I have ever seen. Getting to actually see my seed is something. I have a long way to go and the work is joy.
My cup runneth over.
