We have ducklings!

We bit the bullet and got the 20 ducklings.  I made it more than clear to my husband that I am not responsible for them.  However, I am making sure they have water and that Keku doesn't kidhandle (manhandle) them too much.  So does that make me responsible after all? Hmm Me thinks I've been tricked. Well, they sure are cute anyway and hopefully they will be delicious this fall. And produce lots of eggs.

Faith Restored

Well, we had a work party to work on our porch, and many people showed up.  We got the new porch roof framed in and figured out.  I made lots of food and we had beer at 5pm.  It was great fun. Our group is now having rotating work days where we all get hellp on our projects. So my faith in community is being restored. See More

"I just thought of some slow cooker chili.  Guess what?  I don't even brown the meat, I just kind of separate it with a potato masher and throw everything else in on top of it.  When it;s ready, just break it up a bit.  You…"
