Eggs Delivered to (Okay, Under) Your Door

We put straw bales around the base of the RV to provide some insulation during the winter. Most of the straw was covered with house-wrap, but the area under the pull out stairs was accessible from under the porch.

When one of our son’s chicken’s got loose, it decided this nice covered area was the perfect nesting box.

Fresh eggs at our door!

It’s Spring! (season of mud)

Most of the snow is gone. Melting snow and rain have slid us into a season of mud. We’re back to driving our big red truck, so we get around pretty well.

However, we are seeing some signs of Spring ~ green grass here and there and new babies everywhere.

Here are six new chicks for the family hen house and a litter of baby bunnies snuggled into mum’s fur (eleven!).

One day we saw a young moose that made it through the winter (he’s a bit camera shy).

Hopefully things will dry out over the next few weeks. We’re looking forward to some travel.

 

Winter in Washington

It’s been a good while since we’ve written here. We made it back to Washington and have spent the summer enjoying family and friends. (Here’s a pic of Paul and our grandson, he loves playing with any phone he can get a hold of.)

As we planned to drive out this fall, we felt the Lord cautioning us to stop. We asked our friends to pray with us and ended up choosing to stay in Washington for the winter. We are looking at a season of writing, so practically it doesn’t matter where we park and we felt the Lord had a purpose in us being here.

It would seem this part of our journey is not forward, but outward (among friends and family) and inward (as we seek God’s presence and direction).

We had our first few flakes of snow yesterday and we are just finishing up winterizing the RV. A friend gave us a mess of straw bales that we used to create a “basement” under the RV (to protect all our pipes) and another friend loaned us a car that will make the hill in snow and ice. We are set for winter weather!  :)
