to yurt or not to yurt

Today was a good day.  A ridiculously ordinary day, but a good day just the same.  Mike and I drove to North Carolina to spend the day trekking through the woods looking at property. 

We visited Murphy, North Carolina, and I think I might be perfectly happy to live there full time.  For years I have wanted to live in a quaint little town with a town square, and today we found just that sort of town.  So off into the woods we went to find the perfect piece of land for sale.

We found something we liked, and I suppose the conversation about the yurt will come around again, but honestly, I’m not about to live in a yurt.  I will however gladly live in a converted barn, so bring on the talk of barns.

Life is basically good.  The future is bright.  And things are mostly back to normal.  Well, as normal as things can get when you change how you do everything.  My puppy is growing at an amazing pace, and after another trip to the vet this morning (I seriously think my vet should put me at the top of her Christmas list as often as I am there) he is now completely free of worms. 

I, on the other hand, am not too sure.  Can people get worms from dogs?  And if so, should I just keep them for a while?  I mean, that’s got to be a great way to lose a few pounds right?  There’s just nothing like a stomach virus or an internal parasite to help shed those unwanted pounds. 

I’m kidding of course.  I don’t really want internal parasites…not even if it means losing a little weight.  And no, I don’t really think I have them.  This stuff is supposed to be funny.  Just go with it for a little while ok?

So as it was such a good day, I think I’ll turn in just a little early tonight.  Maybe even get a few good hours of sleep before tackling day two of the weekend.  I might even have something exciting planned!

Until the next time…I’ll be refreshed and ready to have fun!
