Rejoice and Sing!

Guess what I did yesterday???

I made Bread!!

With my Bread machine!

Which requires electricity!!


We have electricity! After 10 months living without electricity, we are finally wired up! (not to solar, unfortunately. But we will get there!) We have a pole out at the new house site so that we can run our electric tools and equipment. So, Toby wired the cabin for a few lights and outlets! It’s so nice only having to pull a string to turn the lights on! I can’t tell you how many times in the last 10 months I have mumbled to myself (or screamed out loud) “I am not a fucking pioneer!!” It’s amazing how different the house feels with lights (and the smell of bread baking)! Very exciting!!

Toby begins laying the block for some of the exterior (underground) walls tomorrow! We are expecting 50 and 60 degree weather this week!!

  1. Hooray! Sounds like things are moving right along on the house. I know you must be excited about electricity — you can always go off the grid later, but in the meantime it’s nice to have lights and bread machines and all that good stuff!

  2. Yippee!!! Doesn’t life seem luxurious now that you have electricity!! Home made bread and lights….now that’s a treat
