This year, I have several hundreds of little things to be awaiting impatiently-- I have taken beekeeping class this winter and will soon be venturing at taking good care of a couple of hives.

            My anticipation for Spring time grows even stronger it seems as the days get colder.

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 broode
