I've been remiss in failing to blog my friend Sherry's project. She bought a chunk of land out in the middle of nowhere (and I mean nowhere - Yelm - an hour and a half drive from here, mostly on small roads) and is carving out her idealized farm. So far she's aded an inviting covered porch to the house, and put in a hot tub, greenhouse, fire circle, chicken coop, and of course a large garden. Much more work is coming, including conversion of an old chicken coop into a meditation space. She's even got a bunny! I'm so proud of her for identifying what she wants and making it happen. Go Sherry!
PS: Dad is doing better. Keep up the good work, everyone!
