Best Intentions

Several have asked about the future house sell and what it could mean for the Sanctuary. Right now the plan is to eventually put the house on the market. We need to do some fixing up, and it won't happen right away. We have a cabin on the Sanctuary property across the street with the horses and pond, and we would make a larger place for us there.

As much as I love our house, it is bigger than we need and expensive to maintain. And all the surgeries we've weathered this year are most definitely taking it's toll (I don't want to live in a refrigerator box with Excy and three cats)! Hopefully the foxes will follow us across the street. We saw one of the kits stroll over there today (I hated seeing it cross the street). Today Francis and Mr Fox and a female kit came up to eat. I will post some pics for 'Wildlife Wednesday.'

That's good to know. I couldn't imagine you giving up the mustangs and assorted wildlife. (at least not completely)

That's a relief...but I'm so sorry about your family's health problems. That does take a toll, both financially and emotionally. I will pray for you.

Health problems can be a real kicker, can't they. I hope you guys get through to the other side of whatever niggly issues you have so that you can start saving money again!

And I guess just moving across the street will save you a bit financially when the day finally comes, eh? :)

Glad to hear you will be on the sanctuary, but saddened for the health issues. Good health thoughts I will have for you.

So you'll stay with the animals, then? I could not imagine you without them!

The animals are far too important to live without -- thanks to all...across the street we will have the horses and beaver and aquatic wildlife to spy upon...as well as the coons and foxes...

It's always amazing to see how much unneeded stuff you've accumulated when you downsize. Purging is a great benefit to such a move. Glad you'll still be among the critters. I live on a farm, too, and can't imagine life without the animals.
