Weird Weather for all!

Posted on

So here I am with another update for everyone, with a minor bit of good(?) news. Due to the fact that we do receive food stamps, the state requires me look for work that will get us off food stamps. While I don’t have an issue with this I must actively 3X’s a week put in applications. I have to be able to prove it. So I will be online about once a week now, and I should be able to update this every week. I will also be able to update my pintrest photo’s too.

As for our wood stove, how many of you remember this picture of our cat Stormy from last year?

Well after we put the wood stove in the house and during the time it’s been too warm to use it, (60’s in December…yuck) Stormy -AND- Merlin have both tried sleeping on the wood stove. This lead to a minor problem for both cats the night we lit it back up again. Both boys wound up lightly burning their paws when they landed on the stove. Funny how they jump right back off.

We have been clearing the ground down to bare dirt for the house on these warm days. The dome is going to be 40ft in diameter, and we have set out some strings so that I could see the future room sizes. It does look like we may have to remove our largest dogwood tree as we are working on the house.

We have also cleared out a few other spaces. One is for an eventual pig “pen”; in that case we cleared out trash, downed trees, and branches. We also cleared out for a new compost pile by the current chicken coop. We have started it with some sticks and leaf litter from where the house is going. The third place we have cleared is where we are hoping to plant sun chokes next year, it’s in a low spot so I hope it works well.

We have gotten a trailer hitch for the van, and Silver has put it on; it looks really good on the van.

Well, that’s it for now folks! Catch you in about a week.

Be Well Be Safe and Blessed Be…
