We did a quick trip to Princeton to bring home the last load of hay. Since I hadn't put up a photo of where we moved the cabin to, I remembered to take a pic and here it is. The cabin looks happier in this spot than it did down in the middle of the open area. I think it likes snuggling up to the hillside. The plan is to get a bathroom built on in the next couple of months. It will depend on the weather. Our youngest daughter made the comment, "Mom, if you let Dad fix that up too nice he won't build you a house." Which is probably true, but I'd like to have an indoor toilet and shower this summer since I'll be spending longer periods of time. We'll have more ground under alfalfa so it will take longer to get it all watered.
Being there more, I should be able to get more writing done. Which is good because I intend to write three books this year. We'll see how that goes. All the books will require a good deal of research. I'm checking into the visitor hours for the Nez Perce museum in Lapwai, ID. I need to make a run up there and do research for the third book in the Spirit trilogy. I've been reading books written from the memories of Nez Perce who survived the flight to Canada. It's how I get myself into my characters and stories, reading real history to find tidbits to incorporate and to make my characters realistic.
