I spent all day giving the house its much-needed cleaning on Saturday. John Y. came in town. He is selling his current house and moving into an apartment, so he will be staying with us for a little while. He had to go back this evening to check up on somethings, but will be coming back on Tuesday.

Our bedroom (the one I share with Rachel) feels clean and refreshing at the moment. I’ve discovered that I write and focus on things in general better when I’m in an organized, harmonious and clean environment (don’t we all?). It is easier to maintain an uncluttered mind in an uncluttered room. Oddly enough, I’m so used to pleasant noise from siblings and the country atmosphere that if things get too quiet, it has the opposite effect on me. But that’s a rare occasion, isn’t it?

We are still waiting on the guesthouse to be completed – they have to finish getting the rest of the insulation up and then put up the beaded board paneling. They are really good and quick workers when they come to our place (in between their other jobs). I have some pictures of the construction, but I don’t think I’ve uploaded them to photobucket yet. I keep forgetting to get all of our garden, coop and construction photos posted, and of course, I can’t spend all my time on the computer.

We got a nice thunderstorm today.

I need to get some writing done…and really ought to get to work on my next chicken painting.

I’m starting a Blog Notification system (sending out a message every time I post a new entry), so if you would like to join the list, just e-mail me at amanda@fairhillsfarm.com.

What time is it, in your opinion?

Farewell…

I don’t know if you are really in to this but a friend of mine is having a contest on her blog. You are suppose to write an entry about a hobbit and comment on her blog telling her that you are/have done it. You can see all the rules on her blog. Oh, and her name is PansyDeepDelver.

It seems the same way here, if I clean the living room (my computer is there) then I can write quite freely. If it is dirty, then I tend to have writers block. Cleanliness cultivates an open mind, which frees our writing skills.

I need to talk to you about your website, please “buzz” me if you get on the IM.

Hey,

We’ve been getting thunderstorms here a lot, almost every afternoon. We had pretty much a whole afternoon of rain on Tuesday. Right now there is a storm overhead… and lightning so I guess I should be getting off right now, sorry to cut the comment short!

You received the blogging with a Purpose Award, so I just wanted to let you know that the banner has been updated. It now goes to the new site. Here is the code:

Did you give the award to five other people?

Yeah, it’s hot here, too. Really hot…

Well, I’m not taking any classes right now. The fall semester doesn’t start until September, I believe. I’m still debating whether I want to take the classes or not.

Yes, I was using that post because I needed to do that follow up post so giving everyone a heart attack was all I could think of.
I was actually going to find out if it was April fool’s day in another country but never got to!
