so my permaculture student days have officially come to an end.
the presentation of my site design for my parents' house went really well, and i got some good ideas for it. (I promise I'll scan those of to you soon mom and dad.)
I think a combination of running around in the rain barefoot, lack of sleep, long nights, and a bit of stress joined forces to make me sick. So I'm currently trying to nurse a cold, sleep a lot, and pull myself together for the buzy week ahead of me.
This morning was my first breakfast back cooking in the kitchen- smokey chipotle black beans, sauteed yellow squash, red pepper, spinach and tomato, scrambled eggs, salsa, and cheese on the side. We have a bunch of classes going on, so lots of people around and some favorites back for new classes. It's fun to get to the point where I already know people from earlier in the year and am excited to see them again.
on other notes, I think it's finally gotten to be the time that our overly aggressive, and frankly mean rooster, Bill, will become chicken soup. Other folk offered to kill him, but I will be in charge of defeathering, taking out the organs and making the soup... a few weeks ago erin and rob brought home a dead pigeon and did the process to the lil bird, and i couldn't really handle it- it freaked me out a lot...so i'm not sure why i think i could handle doing that to bill- but I think it's my job too... working up the guts...
not much else new- once it drys off enough the garden will get spaded and beds shaped.. wish I could have gotten it done a bit earlier- but between class and the ground being really wet- there was no hope..
hope ya'll are well- send me some stop being sick thoughts!
