Green Acres Weekend Update

Don't let the weather fool you; things are heating up around here.  Byron is working on a bigger portable chicken tractor.  Seeds for the garden have been started.  Mr. Woodward, a local farmer and dear friend, stopped by the other day to tell us that he's been in touch with someone who raises cattle and would sell us a couple calves to raise for beef.  We packed up Other House this past weekend despite Byron's unsettled stomach and The Worst Cold I've Had Since College (could it be stress???).  And twenty-three fruit trees are slated to arrive sometime tomorrow.  Apparently they can be stored, and I'd say that's a good thing.

In all this, I'm thankful that things are moving forward in our lives.  Maybe you've gathered this from other posts, and I'm hesitant to announce this since closing is still a couple weeks away, but we have a contract on Other House!  We'll be officially moving next weekend, which is why we had to rush to refinish some of the floors at the farmhouse.  Because of our unexpected renovations, for almost a year our belongings have been divided between the two homes, with just the essentials at the farmhouse. 

A peek at Other House.  It's one of those cool nook-and-cranny, they-don't-build-'em-like-they-used-to sort of places.  We enjoyed our years there!

Byron working on the new chicken tractor.  Hold on a sec - is that my olive oil???  Well, if you don't have WD40 in the house, it seems to work pretty well when you have to drill through metal!
If I fail to post much in the next week or two, you'll know why, and thank you for bearing with me as we enter into a very busy season!
