I moved....

To town that is! I never (again, never say never) thought that would happen. I grew up on a farm, and have always lived in the country until a year ago. Wow, I can't believe its been 1 year this month since I moved to town.

Taking my new job was too far from our family farm (over 1 hour drive) and one of the hiring requirements was to live within the 2 counties I would be working with/in.  I was given 6 months to find a place.

Finding a place to live for one person in a small town is harder than I thought it might be. Growing up near a college town, 1 bedroom apartments were common. I finally (5 months later)  found a studio apartment in a historic limestone building.

I really and truly liked this little place!
 Less space ,means less to clean and less room to fill with "stuff"
This too means, less craft space :(

I was content with my little studio apartment when a duplex closer to work opened. The rent was only $20 more and I would gain an extra bedroom, dining room, and garage. The garage happened to be too small for my vehicle but perfect for crafts & storage. So, I made them move, some days I want to go back to less space to deal with, but I think my duplex is perfect for now.

Things are different in town, not always bad but definitely different. This also explains why my post have been less and the topics are not as "country" as they were before. My job keeps me crazy busy so less time has been devoted to blogging and I am not on the farm daily. However, I am still involved in agriculture on a daily basis. Again, different but not always bad!
