Under a week, and the trailer will be packed, and we will head off toward the morning sun.
I must admit I am a little overwhelmed with the number of tasks that need to be completed before I go. I am thigh deep in laundry, and have piles of tools, implements, and manuals that will need to find their home at the farm.
The plan is to head out early, stop for breakfast on the road, continue until lunch, then drive again until 2:30 or 3:00 when we will find a hotel with a swimming pool and swim the road off of us.
It should take us 5 or 6 days to arrive in Toronto where we will spend a day or two, pick up my eldest daughter, and get on the road again.
I have arranged the purchase of 8 baby chicks when we arrive in Fredericton. Barred Rocks – speckled black on white, or the other way around, and we will raise those this summer.
I ache for the farm under my feet and all around me more and more each year. I cried when we left last summer. I suspect I will again this year. I’ll let you know.
