A beautiful day

The weather was really lovely today. It seemed more like May then February. Juergen and I took Jessica for a drive. I would have liked a walk but Jess wouldn't walk. The sky was almost unreal. I wish I could paint. My painter Nicole is starting to pack her bags. She leaves for America in a week. She will be there for 5 weeks. I look back at all our adventures together last year. She is well on the way to new adventures. What an exciting period in her life. And I have my ticket too. God willing, I will join Nicole in Oregon at the end of March (only for 10 days). I would love more time, but I'm grateful to have the opportunity. Juergen must take time off of work, and take care of the family alone. It is not very easy. So my adventure will be short, but sweet! I hope to get some work done in the garden this week. I also hope to be doing some teaching in March. So I must study. It's easy to study when it's cold. I never thought the weather would be so nice. It is hard to study when it is spring!

it's hard to do anything that isn't out door related when the weather is nice.

Looking forward to seeing Nicole. I am lining up a few art projects for us. I'ts gonna be fun! Oh, while I'm thinking of it, how hard is it to bring over a tube of Mustard? It is delicious, my favorite by far!!. Have an awesome day. Here's to adventures.

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!
