Yurts and Things almost live!

hear =t d=camilleI am just about ready to finally launch the updated version of the Yurts and Things blog. It’s amazing how many “things” there are attached, so much so that I had to really just get focused, pare down to some basics and will add as I go.  I swear I think I could stay up probably 72 hours and write that whole things and still not be finished sharing what I think are the important things!  This is actually quite timely as well as we are breaking ground this week on the Yurt Build.  We changed location on the property for it so now it will be down by the garden which kind of suits me well. It means not only will the garden be around but now I can actually have a real edible landscape. I really think that will be a lot of peace in my life.

Jordan is pretty excited to be involved as well as he will be taking on the business and direction of Yurts and Things. It has become even more important to him as his desire is to actually start building yurt kits for families to help them begin home ownership on a smaller scale, something they can afford without going into debt and grow into.  Not only that but to also allow those that want to live more off the grid the ability to realistically accomplish that. In fact in discussing Jordan’s vision for his business he really wants to help families with their initial build and then to help them add on as they can afford and as their family grows.  Eventually he would love to establish a yurt community that is sustainable and environmentally family friendly.  He already knows how to complete the foundations with his concrete knowledge, some help with energy requirements with wind turbines and just his excitement to really learn all he can and share.

We are both very excited to have Sunray Kelley and Bonnie Howard be a part of the build bringing their vision and special touches in only a way that Sunray and Bonnie can for sure. http://www.sunraykelley.com They are going to be  a pivotal part of the project for the community bringing their brand of love and life.  During the build they will be hosting small workshops along the way for those assisting. We are going to be documenting every step of the way with pictures, blogs, and videos. Upon completion of the Yurt here they are  launching the beginning of their Yurt kit adventure around the world. So stay tuned, it’s going to happen very quickly probably within the space of a couple of weeks and you don’t want to miss a thing 🙂

So now were off to find a home for the 1947 Minnesota Moline tractor that has called that space home for the past 20 years.  It’s time to make space and hopefully find a place where it can be restored to it’s former beauty!

Puppies

I have the wonderful life of owning two beautiful dogs. Pica and Courtney, they are Dachshund/Chihuahua mix.  A wonderful breed, very kind, considerate, loyal, oh and I must say hates mouse and rats so none come near my house. My one dog had puppies of which I have two.  They are beautiful, gorgeous, spoiled and well-loved and cared for, in fact the little puppies sleep with me which is why I have been so sleep deprived for a couple of weeks.  They figured out how to get in my bed!  They are still so much fun.  In fact I just witnessed one of the most incredible and hilarious things in my life! My dog Pica who is about a year has her favorite green unstuffed squeaky toy, she pulls it on the couch, squeaks it, puppies hear it, she then drops a portion off the side, the puppies come up and grab and then Pica yanks and pulls the puppy up to the couch! LOL Puppy fishing. It was hilarious, I am sorry I did not get video, got pics, which I will post. I’m still lolling who said dogs are not smart. 🙂
