We are busy with farmer's market and other sales outlets for our produce. Blackberries! Wonderful! I'm freezing what doesn't sell, and those will go to the Co-op.
We have two new alpacas -- girls, this time. Hopefully, we'll be successful at breeding and get a little extra income that way.
Our remodel is still a "work-in-progress" after a year! Living with boxes everywhere and furniture shoved in every corner is wearing on the soul. The addition to the house is up, but the inside requires much work. Chuck finished the laundry room, but still need electric to the dryer; so I carry the damp clothes to the workshop where the dryer is set up on the porch. Have been washing and drying on the workshop porch for a year -- through snow and 105 degree days.
Have you ever watched the movie "The Egg and I" with Claudette Colbert??? Well, you should! Sometimes I feel I'm living that movie, sans chickens, however. I did reach my limit on critters, so chickens will come at another time. We did have chickens when we lived in North Street, Michigan (how small do you think that place is?). Loved our chickens, also had children at the time to do feeding, cleaning, watering. One time Chuck shoveled a path through the snow to the chicken coop for the girls to use, but it drifted over in nothing flat, so the path was no more.
Got to run -- Lilli (another cat) is climbing all over me and the keyboard. She likes to sit on my shoulder, which can be very distracting! I'm also freezing blackberries --
Push on, all, don't let it get ahead of you!
