Speed Bumps

Life is full of them, I suppose. Honestly, I guess I should be thankful that it wasn’t worse.

I haven’t said a whole lot publicly about the living situation we were moving out of to move into our camper. In truth, I did that on purpose.

This was the second time we’d lived with this person and the first time, other than a few issues with feeling like my privacy had been violated, things were pretty good.

Going back the second time turned out to be quite different and neither Draco nor I were very happy being there. That was part of the reason why we were planning to move out.

Last week, in the middle of a snow and I’ve storm, she texted me saying she thought it was time for everyone to move on.

While I agreed with the sentiment whole-heartedly, we were due to get our taxes last week as well and would have been leaving soon anyway. Something she knew.

Her timing was obviously intentional and instead of having the camper in the back yard last weekend and possibly being ready to move it this weekend, we have instead been sleeping on an air mattress in Witchlet’s living room and my camper is still sitting.

Hopefully our second check will arrive this week like the website says.

I was finally able to make arrangements with my Aunt to pull the camper to her house to get it park-ready so I’m hoping we’ll be able to move it this weekend n not have to keep staying here.

Even if I’m in someone’s yard, at least I’ll be home.

I think I mentioned it before as well, but Draco and I have decided to get mopeds and give up our car. We just can’t afford it anymore. I’m actually looking forward to it and with the temperatures reaching 70 degrees today, I’d love to go for a ride.

Unfortunately, because I still have to get my stuff moved to the camper, I can’t give up my car just yet.

That about sums up what’s been going on around here. I’m having to do everything from my phone right now though so I’m not sure how much I’ll be blogging until we get settled.

Oh, I did get Witchlet and her mate into experimenting with regrowing from scraps. She currently had 2 heads of romaine lettuce, celery, garlic and onions going. I’m so proud!

Welcome to The Tiny Hearth

My name is Fae Moon and I am the resident blogger here at The Tiny Hearth.  Let me start off by telling you a little bit about who I am and what you’ll find here at TTH.

I am a wife, mother, and soon-to-be grandmother (our little bundle of Wee Witchy joy is due on March 2, 2014 ~ which happens to be the day after my birthday, too).

I have been blogging off and on, it seems, since blogging began, but didn’t begin to take it seriously until about 3 years ago when I found myself caring for my dying mother and her husband that was slowly going insane.  That blogTheTinyHearth200x128, unfortunately, disappeared in a maintenance mishap and even the techy guys where I was hosting at the time couldn’t make it come back.  Since then, I have floated around from place to place, never quite feeling at home anywhere else and too disheartened to try to revamp my lost blog (let me tell you, that was over a year of hard work, writing, socializing and making a name for myself).

Now, after nearly 20 years together, Draco (my husband and the love of my life) and I, find ourselves on the brink of a completely different life.

Witchlet is our only child and she has been gone from home for years now, and suddenly we find ourselves about to be grandparents!  That means that the pitter-patter of Wee Witchy Feet will once again return to our hearth.

Draco has frequently worked jobs with unpredictable hours, and for the last 2 years, it seems he has spent more time out of town than at home and he has just changed jobs to one with a set schedule and days that is local.

In addition to all of that, for the last 4 years, we have mostly lived with other people.  We gave up our place nearly 4 years ago to care for my parents and then we moved in with a friend of ours and our lives have been reduced to a bedroom for those 4 years.

Within the next month or so, we will find ourselves moving into a camper and putting it on a semi-permanent site about 15 minutes from Draco’s new job.

I have to admit, I have teetered between excited and nervous, but I have found a number of sites recently about living in small spaces and making it work, so now I am filled with confidence and excitement over this next phase of our lives.

In The Tiny Hearth, you will find stories about our lives and our family, recipes, tips for living and growing plants in small spaces, and frugal living.  You will also hear a lot about my favorite little 4-legged baby, my Pug, who is also my familiar.

It also just so happens that Draco and I consider ourselves Pagans.  Now don’t get all nervous.  It’s most likely not what you think (it’s not what most non-pagans think it is).  Our practice is really very different from what I think most Pagans do.  I am what I consider a Hearth Witch, or Kitchen Witch, when means that my focus is on my home, my family, cooking and cleaning.

I also do a handful of crafts and I intend to start doing a few more that I may share from time to time.

I’m very excited to have this chance to spend some time with all of you and I look forward to growing a community of people around this blog!  I hope you come to enjoy your time here as much as I do!

Blessings!
