2003-2008

Typically, when a special event happens around our household, Jay and I go to work preparing some sort of special food. We have a rhubarb (thanks to the Kortas' for dropping off a huge bundle of it) pie and what get's me is that there aren't two kids around to gobble it up with us as they are in Huslia for a softball tournament. So, for our 5th wedding anniversary, we decided on T-bone steaks and a pie that would have the local bakery jealous, which we don't have, but I'm just having fun imagining...To make the day perfect, we headed out to the lot to hand saw a few more birch trees and clean up some of the brush laying around, it's amazing to see space cleared with muscle power and no gas powered engines! I do imagine we'll buy a chainsaw here soon, we just wanted to try out the ol' fashioned lifestyle and give it a go to test our limits. Sometimes I laugh to myself, people will drive or walk by and have no idea we're a few feet in the trees with the minimal noise we make. I'm getting giddy just thinking of that First Day house planted in the birch...
