Lunch with my sister

Philip and I did a little more shopping with my mom today. I found some nice Christmas gifts for Thomas today. And we ran into my sister Dianna. So Philip and I went to lunch with Dianna and her son Chris, and her husband Paul. And I got the tour of their new house. I was feeling very tired today. Somehow the jet lag seems worse as time goes by. It is only about 9pm and I'm going to bed totally wiped out. I need to pull my camera out and start to take some photos. And I need to get out in the garden. I'm a little nervous about the weather. I wonder how the poor weather will delay our trip home. My dad sleeps allot. He is happy to see us, but I feel like he just does not feel that good. I'm wondering how having the whole family around is going to stress him out. He tires easily. My mom also seems pretty tired. We may all be getting my sister Shelley's cold? I'm really feeling drained. They seem glad we are here, but it also seems stressful to them because it is a break in their routine. They are both in their mid-70’s. I think they need their quiet and rest. Even positive stress is still stress. I can tell my dad is not feeling well and feels stressed.

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!
