Holidays Hit The Modern Prefab House - We Turn To Friendsgiving

The modern prefab project in the Northwest has, after a hiatus, restarted. Next steps, now that this modern prefab house outside of San Francisco, the modified R1 Residential, has been approved in planning, zoning, and building permits, is for the client to make their second of three payments, then the third at time of delivery. The SIP will be fabricated and cut, then delivery dates arranged so that they arrive when the contractor is ready.

At our own off grid modern prefab house, we continue to work on the wood shed, which is almost done! 

The roof is on!!!! We still have bracing and nailing to do on the run in shed for the horses, but at least there are roofs on the new structures to help keep animals and wood dry.

Hen on the rooftop?

There is always hard work, but also time for play.

 Here Pip 2 plays Hide And Seek with Cornbread...

I enjoy cooking on the cookstove now that proper fall weather is here.
Venison with sauteed onion gravy
dilled potatoes and peas.

Outside it's cold and gray but inside it's toasty...

...and bright!

Life here is good.

For many, holidays are not what most envision.
Instead of wading into cold familial blood, we celebrated with people with whom we have spent a lifetime in love:
What fun it was to host a lifetime of old friends- into the city we went to joyfully celebrate FRIENDSGIVING.

From far and wide they gathered- old friends that have been friends so long we're family. Many of these girls I've known since kindergarten...

Watching our children form their own connections was such magic...

Watching Handsome Husband make orange juice with one tiny Pipsqueak who asked for juice during the party, realizing we had none (but there were oranges!) was adorable...

Generations of love played and danced.

"'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come 'round right."

It's a new, easy tradition we will carry on through other holidays- Friendsmas, anyone? : )

We returned to the off grid modern prefab rejuvenated, in time to participate in the Appomattox Christmas Parade.

How is it we Casatis always end up with the muck bucket? 
; ) 

On the way back for another cozy evening in the off grid prefab house, we got caught in traffic, again... OH THE HOLIDAY TRAFFIC...

We loved seeing so many friends over the holiday, but it is GOOD to be HOME.
