Yes, we’re moving again. This time, however, rest assured that we can settle in and call this place home for at least the next few years.
The beautiful cottage we moved to had particular molds that I was allergic to, and if I would have stayed there, I would have developed pneumonia. Currently, my lungs hurt, are starting to get juicy and my coughing has increased.
I’ve lost a lot of hair and had a flare up of alopecia. Dom and Simmi shaved my head a few days ago, and now, hopefully, I will recover and my system will calm down. My hair will grow back, so I’m not really too concerned about that. Our biggest concern is keeping me out of the hospital.
Tomorrow is our move-in date, but we’ll be bringing our stuff starting today. Dom searched our new house from top to bottom, inspected the basement and bathrooms, and everything is mold free.
Our new home is only about 15 miles from where we are currently living. We will be perched up on the side of a mountain, overlooking the valley. It’s quite magical. As far as gardening and farming goes, we’ll see how any of it plays into this property. I haven’t discussed gardening, keeping turkeys, ducks, or chickens, or even sheep with the landlord and I’m not sure they will fit into this place. I think ducks, chickens, and turkeys would though. I’ll have a better idea after I get my health back and have had the winter to observe the land.
The property is situated on a very steep drop off. There are areas for forest gardening and permaculture, but I’m not sure yet what kinds of animals like to pass through. Understanding the wildlife is important since we share sacred space with them out in the mountains.
Our new home will also be the backdrop for a few projects we will be working on over the winter. Dom will be starting a video series on how fathers can begin to add more traditional wholesome food into their family’s lives. From food prep, to making lactofermented foods and beverages. We will also be creating a video series on how to prepare allergen friendly foods for loved ones. With food allergies and sensitivities becoming more common, it would be helpful for those who don’t have food allergies to have the rules and tools for preparing a safe meal for a visiting family member or friend with a food allergy or sensitivity. Our aim is to take the mystery and fear away, empowering others to make a difference in the lives of those who in many cases have been marginalized by a food allergy or sensitivity. We have eight years of experience in what has worked for us, and now its time for us to share that knowledge with everyone.
We don’t have a date for when we’ll start filming, but we’re thinking that it will be sometime in the new year.
In the meantime, we’ll be busy getting settled in and I’ll be recovering…hopefully very quickly!
