|A new life ahead...|
My life has radically changed in the last year. Without going into many unpleasant details, the end results have been positive. I found a life partner after 50 years of searching. I resigned my government job of 23 years. I moved from the city to the country. I live a much more humble and quite different life. I have much less money now and have to watch my pennies. But I am happy in a much deeper sense. I feel challenged in a very good way.
You see, I grew up in the country. But I left it many years ago. I often day-dreamed of going back but had no idea how I could accomplish it. I have found, in the end, that you can do whatever you want, if you truly want to.
But what of the animals, you ask? The ratties were found good homes through petfinder. My cats, they followed me to the country. Simon has passed away, alas, but Tigger is still with me, and has joined my partner's cat, Whiskers. Both of them were city cats, and now have become country cats, and quite accomplished mousers! I will probably not post here very often, since my focus nowadays is on the farm, my passion for local history, etc. But I may pop in here now and then.
You are welcome to check out my other sites, especially Prairie Woman, which will have many stories about our animals...
