What spring looks like

Finally! Spring is here!!
In the past several weeks a lot has happened…. So much bad stuff that I can’t even address it all. I am too tired.
When we got home today from another emergency trip to SC (the third in three weeks), I saw all of this, and it helped me. We felt that we came home to a house of life.
We are all so so happy to be home!

The chickens got to scratch in the forest for the first time in five days. We also moved their house to fresh green pasture.

As an act of love, Neilster brought up some chicken dung for the bottom layer of a new lasagna bed. I am unable to do any of this with my shoulder situation, so it means a lot to me!

Oh, and when I got home, the good fairy had come and cleaned my house! I had always hoped she existed and today I found out that for sure she does!!

    What a beautiful post! Spring is like Christ in that it reminds us that all things are made new.

    Whew! I’m glad you are home! We’ve been praying for you.

    We have been praying… we hope you get some rest. Stress can take years off you life. Sometimes, after a very stressful day I get up the next morning and look in the mirror and I’m several months older than I was the day before… Some suggest that the only reason we age is simply because of “bad days” and stress in our life. Take away all the stress, you’ll live to be 100! It could happen… We hope you all get some rest and heal!

    Also, At first glance I thought Neil was sheering a sheep and I assumed that you had gotten a sheep, then I realized it was the dog. Whew! That was close…

    That lovely tree… crabapple or hawthorn possibly. Check with your county extension services. ;0)
