Hmmm, I really thought I'd written something here since October, but apparently I haven't, shame on me :)
So here I am, back again, let me tell you what has been going on since Oct., that job I was working and LOVED, well it has fizzled, turns out there isn't enough work for 2 people in this area, although the 2 of us seemed to be doing just fine, apparently the boss' boss doesn't agree. I am still on the payroll and will still do team jobs, but for now it's just slow going. So I decided to take a bit of time off from working, mainly on account of finding a long lost friend.
A couple of months ago, I did a search on FaceBook for a friend I knew back when I was 12-13 years old, long story short, I found her! And it happened that she was going to be passing through around Christmas, she agreed to dip a bit further south and stop in for a visit.
She spent a few days here and it was so much fun, we picked up right where we left off, it is amazing the similarities of our lives since we were parted so many years ago. She must have some gypsy in her blood, she loves to travel and does so, living in her full size van, she lives off grid too, but mobile. Now we will be one of her stops when she passes through this part of the country.
Another tidbit of info, on Dec 22, we celebrated our 8th year living off grid, it's hard to imagine that it's been 8 years, and yet, I almost can't remember our life before this, I certainly can't imagine living any other way. Even with the so called inconveniences of living off grid, I wouldn't go back to city life for all the money in the world.
Tonight I sit here, next to the wood burning stove, it's frigid outside, it would be considered cold inside by most people's standards, but I'm happy, happy, happy!
As far as working goes, I'm still employed by that merchandising company, but chances are I'll be going back to work as a caretaker for my friend, we have taken a break from that and it's time to get back to doing that job, even though I don't consider it a "job", I enjoy doing it, wish there was more money in it, but there are other rewards :)
Hope everyone had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
