August arrived in style bringing very few rain showers, enough to soak the ground and cool off the forest. J decided to try his hand at a kickstarter project, which did not succeed. But I think we are a bit relieved, since that would’ve been more work than we could handle right now. Toy sales are going moderately well, nothing spectacular. Hopefully we’ll see the big numbers they promised at the end of the year. Fingers crossed. We also began collecting our CSA meat share this month! It is definitely amazing to me that the Luna bleu staff offer all these awesome share options every year, year round. We really don’t get much from the grocery store these days and when we do, we aim for locally sourced items and/or organic when possible.
September brought us more beautiful weather and a final decision to sell the dome. Where would we go if it sold quickly? J came to me with an idea to buy a box truck and convert it into a mobile living space! So we found a local U-haul with several trucks available (in Manchester, NH), headed over (on a Sunday) and J test drove four!! The last one was the winner. We talked them down to $4k from $5k (it had been marked down from $6.5k) and checked in to a hotel for the night (we didn’t bring a temp tag and the DMV isn’t open on Sunday! Duh! Oops.) By Monday afternoon, we were caravaning back home. J drove the truck. A few days later J posted a video up on youtube about selling the dome and began receiving an onslaught of offers. Some serious, some more like wishful thinking. By the end of the week we had a family of four visit us for the weekend and make us an offer we were happy to accept!
