Taking Olive on the Sound

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

A couple weeks ago, I found a 12 foot aluminum Duroboat for sale on craigslist.com. A guy was selling the boat, trailer, 3 seats, oars, trolling motor, battery, two anchors, and 4 life vests for $1,900. I ended up buying it. The title says the boat was built in 1998 but you’d be hard pressed […]

Geocaching at Fort Flagler

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

With June still showing us a glimpse of winter here in the Northwest, every sunny day has to be enjoyed to the fullest. Friday’s forecast looked good so I took the day off from work and Jared and I headed up to Fort Flagler State Park located on Marrowstone Island. View Larger Map This was […]

Washing My Car

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

The Pacific Northwest has changed the way I wash my car. Anywhere else, washing my car was more like doing the laundry. I did it to remove the dirt; sometimes once a week whether it needed it or not. I would dry the car so it wouldn’t have spots. If it rained, I felt like […]

Chicken Tractor

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

We enjoy allowing the chickens to scratch and peck in the yard. They usually do a pretty good job staying in our yard but not always. Jared and I constructed a chicken tractor today so we can allow the flock access to different parts of the yard and not worry about them going where they […]

A New Mower

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Mr. J. will be 10 in a couple weeks. It is about time he learns to mow the grass! The nice weather and sunshine has encourage my grass to grow. I drug the lawnmower out of the garage and Jared walked up as I was pouring in some gas. I asked if he wanted to […]

Jared the Chicken Hypnotist

Jared figure out own his own that you can flip a chicken on its back, rub its belly and it will remain in that position without a fuss. Here is some unedited video of the master at work.

On the Job

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

One of our pullets laid her first egg today! It was laid by one of the California Whites or one of the Sicilian Buttercups. It is small but looks good. We will see what is inside tomorrow morning. It is so awesome to see the chickens using the various parts of the coop as they […]
