She is into the poultry business and has been doing it for two years now. She started with a few chicks but now has many and the challenge she faces is that chicken feed is expensive. In future she wishes to expand her business to supply both broilers and layers. She needs the loan to buy more chicks.

It's been one week since we closed on the sale of our house. I think the best thing about our house was the view because it always presented something different to look at each day. Photo opps, like this moon photo I took a few days before our departure, happen almost daily when you have a distant landscape and lake to look at everyday. However, I'm sure the places we're headed for will provide an even greater diversity of views and scenery.
The other thing I will miss is the outdoor shower. Even though we had a gorgeous tile & marble frame-less glass shower inside there is nothing like taking your morning shower outdoors. Where else can you enjoy a mug of coffee, take in the view and feel the warmth of the sun on your face. I am already working on the idea of a portable RV outdoor shower.
View from inside the shower. (The ribbon is to protect the raspberry patch from the deer) I miss the raspberries too.

With home ownership now behind us and the bulk of our possessions liquidated we can now focus on our new life. Before I start to think about the logistical preparations for our journey I wish to remind myself of the mindset that got us to this point. It is best summed up in a quote I found recently by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross:"It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth - and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had."
