DARKSTAR OAKS - Shall we go, you and I While we can?     ~Robert Hunter
Ripples In Still Water

Just A Note

Yep, it's Winter here and we are loving it. Little did we know that we would burn through 3 cords of firewood already, or that we would become ecstatic when the inside temperature reached 63 degrees,  or that it snowed on occasion, or that the pond would freeze (if even for a day), or that the creek would rise so high after the rains, or that we could go a week without going into town (which is only a mile an a half away), or that we would feel like we were truly and finally at home.  It's a fact...WE LOVE IT here at Darkstar.

So, we did go to the Bay Area for Christmas and we picked up the rest of Rose's stuff and brought it home to store. The barn and container are full! Oh yeah, we are also storing some stuff for a friend too. We have a great renter for the cottage and he's hardly ever here, though we wouldn't mind if he was here. We've had several visitors stay over (we have plenty of room upstairs) and we love to here them express how beautiful and peaceful it is here in Mendocino County, the home of Darkstar.

I have the main barn all cleaned up now. All tools and equipment is accounted for and best of all, I know where it is! Rose has a small Winter garden going, the chickens are growing and soon to lay eggs. We are thinking about getting a dog. I've been mending fences and putting in gates between pastures.

Right now there are a plethora of frogs croaking West of the house. It sounds like a concert we've never heard before.  It's amazing to begin to become one with nature and enjoy each and every moment. We seldom have much concept of what time it might be. We pretty much go by light and dark.

Today the grand-daughter of a former owner came by to see the old place. She told us about memories of her early days here and was thrilled to see that the place was just as she remembered it. She had so many great stories to share and was pleased that we were working on bringing it all back to the way it use to be.

Well that's about it for now.  However, please check out Rose's Ocean Song Silks. They are fantastic. Of course we have some hanging in the house as they add a great sense of ambiance and movement to this place we call Darkstar.

More to come in a few weeks.

Carry on...

When finances get strong and you'd like access to credit, that comes at intervals the kind credit cards and Lone-Star State day loans, emergency things don't have time to attend for ancient bank loans or lenders. they typically take their time running your credit and making you not sleep for approval. If you'd like fast cash and don't have many it slow to spare, don't produce financial alternatives hastily.
