pulling weeds and doing the wash

We have about 10 loads of wash, so I'm just trying to catch up with it.  And I spent 2 hours in the garden pulling weeds.  I need another 10 hours to catch up with the weeds.  But I planted all the vegetables I brought home from Italy.  So much to do...so much to do.  But I'm very happy to be home.  It will take awhile before I can see my garden as anything but a weed patch, but I'll get there.  And I'm afraid I'm on my own.  Nicole can not afford to miss any school for the next 5 weeks.  She has allot of art to work on.  And after that she will be working at the summer camp.  So my best helper is out of the game, and I'm going to have to just deal with it a few hours at a time.  I just hope the weather improves.  I still have to wear a coat outside.  It feels more like March then June.

chicken coop idea

Why not start with an IBC and cut a hole for the door? You could build closed laying boxes into it, and something for the chickens to roost on. Put some straw or saw dust on the floor. You could add vents to the side for air. If it sat inside a chicken run that you can walk into, the chickens could be safe, dry and happy. I have an extra IBC. Maybe this could be my chicken house? I bet I could even plant the outside of it with mud and grass for extra insulation and good looks.

I love the idea

I think I've loved old stuff my whole life. I love 2nd hand stores so much more then new stores. And a container house is really just taking what is old and using it in a new way. It's cheaper to build with and good for the earth.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Juergen worked all day at the old house. This is after working every night there after work. My poor sweetheart is so tired! And he showed the house to 3 different families. It was too big for all of them. 2 families had no children, and one had a baby. It has 5 bedrooms, why do they look at all? And Sarah had a 2 hour cry over cleaning her bedroom. I think the cry had more to do with Juergen being gone all the time. We are feeling a little beaten up. I'm sure it will be OK, but it's hard not to feel discouraged. Part of this is just being too tired. "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. " Proverbs 13:12 We are feeling the pain of a sick heart, but still hoping for the tree of life. I hope it all get’s resolved soon. And for tonight, that we can rest. Everything looks dark when you are too tired!
