A Flexible Living
I'm thankful most of what I do to make a living is flexible, allowing me to spend time with a family member who is ill. Some projects have been progressing, when I've been home and able to help Joseph. We're remodeling a storage space, making new sheds on the ends for tractor, mower, tiller and such, and creating a personal shop space for Joseph. There has been much sorting through, and boxing up, and a first load delivered to a local thrift shop.
This Mercedes was payment for a recent job Joseph did. He kept the engine, which was in good shape, and some other bits and pieces, and we took the rest to the salvage yard.
I was happy to see an indigo bunting at the feeder for a couple of days. I saw either a scarlet tanager or a flycatcher down at the creek while walking with the pups. It flew away too quickly to be sure. That's life on the homestead, friends. I'll be back when I can.
