The Yurt is on its way!

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:…a time to tear down and a time to build…
―Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, NIV

And just like the the Sun rises in the East and Sets in the West, I continue my story, oh grateful listener.

First, I am excited to announce that my little brother has sent me my Yurt and paid for it. As a matter of fact, he is the closest person I have in my life and he and his wife Olesya have been my backbone and support for many years. There is nothing I can do to thank them enough. They are my family. I thank my brother Zhenya and Olesya for their help and support. I love you guys.

While I wait for the Yurt to arrive, I am still searching for the right place to put it. I started to search for the piece of land back in May, and I envisioned a flat lot on the shore of a lake somewhere near the city. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything that was either close enough to the city or by any means affordable. I had received an offer from one fellow that showed me an abandoned old farm 30 minutes away from the city. It is 80 acres, with a weedy dirt road and mixed forest with bush and pine trees. Deep into the property there is a pond but it’s quite hard to get there because of the tall grass. After-all that, I was quoted $450 per month for rent and I abandoned this property idea.

I reposted my ad on Kijiji and received an interesting call from a lady that has a big farm. She allows some people to use some of her land in exchange for work or, in my case, work + money. We didn’t discuss all details yet, but it looks promising. And it’s just 30 minutes away from my work or downtown.

Stay tuned. Lots of fun coming soon…
