After a six month hiatus from the internet and then the next few not bothering to write, it’s been a long time since I blogged…The winter has been a jump back into full time jobs and adjusting to a different kind of life. Our new place is nestled into the Gatineau hills beside a lake. We’ve got free range forest chickens and some veggies growing out of our hot bed/mini coolhouse that we constructed out of straw bales and old plastic. Things are greening up here and the spring ephemerals are popping up all over the place. It is definitely spring!
