As newlyweds we moved into our home almost 13 year ago and on and off we have been renovating and improving ever since. We have done a lot of the work ourselves and it almost feels like it is nearing completion.
The final major stage of our renovation has been our wood oven and outdoor kitchen area. We now have a warm, open, sunny place to prepare and cook food and we couldn't be happier with it.
I hope one day our wood oven is a gathering place not just for our family but also for our little community. Perhaps we could share bread making knowledge or home butchering skills or vegetables or just some warmth and a home brew or two.
Over time I have learnt that waiting for improvements and working towards them results in a more fulfilling experience. The time spent waiting and saving often leads to more thoughtful planning and unexpected outcomes.
Do you have a goal, or a dream or a long term renovation happening?
Are you cooking a lamb roast or bread?
I hope you are having a lovely week.
