Rain, Rain, Rain

Kristine filled the wheelbarrow and used her muscle power to get it on the porch and parked by the slider near the wood stove.

I decided to bring in a load of firewood in the wagon and park it in the entry way for easy access during the rains the next four days or so. The wood looks like it is holding out fairly well. So, unless we get a lot more snow we should have enough to make it through to some warm weather.

I get my news off the computer and found:
Upstream has a live broadcast for news about what is happening in Japan in English or translated.
Kyodo News has up to date news.

Watching brings back the 1989 quake and living in a field and that disorienting feeling of not knowing and not having a place/home anymore. It took us ten years to get back to where we were before the earthquake. I think it could take a lifetime for the cities to be rebuilt. I try not to check too often. So heartbreaking.

6 eggs today - the hens are fine and dry

I know! I get sucked into the news too much and get more depressed! I have to stop...
We heat with wood, also. Our wood is almost gone. Maybe a cord left. We might have to order some more.
I have been getting about 7 eggs a day but I have a hen thats an egg eater. Do you have any suggestions? I tried the blown out eggs then filled with mustard. She ate it all! Geeeze!

Nice blog you have here! I love your chicken mug rug, and you have a beautiful dog and lovely chickens. I have a mixed flock: a barred rock rooster and hen, two Rhode Island whites, two Buff Orpingtons, three rescued Isa Browns, and one lonely Red Rock. I usually get about 6 eggs a day.

Wow! Four days of rain?! The wood pile looks good and looks like it will last y'all awhile. We're having beautiful weather here (I'm sure you don't want to hear that right now!).

I haven't been watching any news on Japan. I'm just praying for them!

Sounds like you can relate to these people. So glad you guys are back on your feet again!

It is a a catastrophe in Japan. One can't imagine what it must have been like. You sound like you have experienced one. I'm glad I haven't.
