Waiting at the airport

We got up at 5am and had coffee with Mom and Dad.  Yes it was sad to say goodbye, it always is.  And we drove to Salem and had a big breakfast at Denny's.  I ate blueberry pancakes.  They aren't gluten free, but I'll be good when I get home.  Then we drove to Portland and filled the rental car with gas before dropping it off.  Then we took a shuttle to the airport and checked our bags.  We had to pull stuff out of 2 bags because they were overweight by 2 pounds.  We have big carry-ons.  Much bigger then I like.  Going through security was easy.  I was surprised because I was carrying a pressure cooker.  But the airline website said it was ok to carry on.  And I informed the security we had it.  It was no problem at all.  I hope it fits in the overhead compartment.  So now we wait.  We are 3 hours early and siting at the gate.  Maybe I can Skype Juergen?

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!
