Sunday we had our housewarming. This meant that the two days previous were a mad frenzy of painting, cleaning, unpacking and organizing. But that is the best part of a housewarming, it gives you the incentive you need to finally get that stuff done!
The housewarming was a massive success, we have one very warm house! 51 people showed up! The day before we had put flyers in our neighbors mailboxes, and 20 of them showed up, which was a great opportunity. The neighbors also liked it, as it gave them a chance to meet each other and catch up on what is going on in the valley. We had plenty of dancers and musicians, as before the party started we had a rehersal for our coming performance (in March). All in all a great time was had. Food was eaten, drinks were drunk (but nobody got badly drunk), people walked around the paddocks, a much good conversation. A few people could not make it, so we will just have to invite them all over some other time!
Now with that past it is time to start focusing on farm projects. There is gorse to cut, fences to mend, and water tanks to get installed. Later this week we get our first Alpacas, and you can rest assured as soon as we do plenty of cute photos will start going up on the blog.
