Coop I haven’t bothered with writing anything here for awhile, because if I did it would just be a whiny, oh woe is me kind of a post, and who really wants to read about that? I will only say that in the last couple weeks a 300 year old tree lost a very big section and will have to be cut down for a large sum of money, and my old reliable Honda friend needs to be put out to pasture, which meant buying a new car for a large sum of money. It also meant spending four hours in the company of car salesmen who I completely detest. Wow, they were a bunch of jerks.

Let’s remember a happier time, shall we? This is me and my adorable niece in the chicken coop, during my sabbatical. Forgive the lack of makeup and hair styling, I was on vacation.  She helped me gather eggs every day while they were here. I miss my little helper! She also declared Bear her best friend. I’m sure he feels the same. We had so much fun at Disneyland and I had the honor of buying her first pair of mouse ears.

I’ll be back again soon, I still have egg recipes to share, cute cat pictures, gosling updates and even some stuff I made. This is still a blog about making stuff, after all. If you need something to cheer you up, Dreamkiller, by these guys and this song really worked for me. Go listen!


  1. I’m sorry about the tree and the car. And the car salesmen. I think you got off easy because you only had to spend 4 hours with them. Hang in there! Your niece is soooo cute!

  2. Welcome back! You aren’t whining, just venting. Sorry you are having such a run of bad luck. Hopefully things will look up. I think you and your niece are cute as buttons even without make-up!

  3. Bummer events strike again. It will get better soon!

  4. Hope things are looking up for you. How are the Ruby’s? We are back to 7-9 eggs daily, so what we don’t use, we give away. People are thrilled to get organic, farm-fresh, free range eggs!

  5. I hope everything is back to normal and that things aren’t as crazy. I don’t know what it is but always when one thing goes wrong a whole lot of other things goes wrong too. I love the picture of you and your niece :o) And I’m quite envious you can visit Disneyland like if it was just another theme park!!

  6. yay for love you long time!

say something nice...
