The start of something new

It doesn’t look like much, but this is a 10′ x 12′ concrete slab for our new chicken coop. !!! The floor slopes on purpose towards that drain in the middle – the goal is to periodically hose the thing out and let all the, er, “organic material” go down the drain and back to nature.

For Mother’s Day

Here’s my mom as a little girl.


A bit older, and reminding me of Rosie the Riveter.


She grew up and got engaged.


One time, she rode a horse!


She was always doing something – painting, cooking, sewing. Very crafty, that one. She could make something out of nothing.


I’m not sure what she was thinking, but she did this. (I think that’s the last time I was in a dress – !)

I love you, Mom.
