I hope your Autumn has been a lovely one and that winter plans are going smoothly.
As most likely it is for you, things have been busy and just when I am ready for a break something happens that puts a wrench in my plans. This time it was a strange damage to my wrist along bruising to my arm, which I am still not sure how I did it, but my thoughts are that it was all due to my raging war on the squirrels. I've been waiting to plant Rembrandt tulips, but every time I plant them, the bulbs are enjoyed instead by the squirrels. So, I purchase metal netting that was denser and stronger than chicken wire. So, I had to cut out the pieces, pull wire out in some places to form holes, so the plants would peak out of them and fold them down on the sides. I remember my hand hurting then, but I finished the job. A couple of days later, I started to feel the pain and the bruises started moving along the side of my arm. YUCK! It feels much better now and I am able to sit and paint without much pain. Arg those squirrels. :)

This wrench to my plans made me slow down and take a much needed break- a time to reflect, read, enjoy a few movies and just be. It was lovely.
I am so thankful for all your support and encouragement. You've helped made my year feel very successful.
I am starting a few paintings at $25.99 as my late "Black Friday".

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

My heart is filled with all your inspirational words. Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around.

I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
