Mickey is a good dog

A drunk man wearing a clown suite decided to take a nap on my front porch today. My kids didn’t know what they should do. I called our dog Mickey (he is all bark). I opened the door and said Hello. The man woke up, shook my hand and went on his way. Thank God for Mickey! I hope he makes it home safely. It is the Carnival season. It is sad to see someone so drunk at 3 in the afternoon. I also worry about having my kids driving tonight. God please keep my family safe on the road. I was in the car when my mom was hit by a drunk driver. I was maybe 6 years old, but I can still remember seeing that car moving towards us. There was nothing we could do…but grace saved us from getting hurt. We were hit.

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!
