Getting Started on the Duck Cabin

Since we got the ducks last November I’ve been itching to get them out of the tub and into their own home. Now that it’s warmed up Mr. Comfortable is getting started on the duck cabin. It’s going to be amazing!

Learning to Sew with Eileen

It seems as if it took me forever to schedule a day with Eileen so she could start teaching me to sew. This was entirely my fault. I started doing other things and kept forgetting to call her to arrange my lesson. She finally gave up waiting for me and told me she’d be uptown having lunch with Pete & Andi’s youngest daughter and she could come by right after. I jumped at the chance! Eileen can sew anything! And learning to sew with Eileen would be fun!

Learning to sew is fun!

Life with Ducks

Since we brought Penguin and Spot (and the rather unfortunate but delicious Stu) home from Indiana it’s been frustrating and fun. People are still flabbergasted that we have these two ducks living in a tub. Mr. Comfortable recently mentioned how it’s going to be strange when they move outside. He’s going to have to get used to it. They will be moving as soon as it’s safe for them! In the meantime, enjoy these pictures and videos of our life with ducks!

Raising Rabbits for Meat

When my sons were kids they raised rabbits, mostly for showing. Yes, there are rabbit shows just as there are dog shows. The boys’ primary breed was Mini Rex and they did incredibly well. They were first in the country in their breed. But their secondary breed, which they showed mainly at our county fair, was New Zealand (whites) and those are the rabbits I’ve chosen for my next project; raising rabbits for meat.Raising rabbits for meat is a great way to provide for your family!

Winter Storm Preparedness

Here in Michigan we have an ice storm nearly every year. And every few years we get an ice storm that’s epic. We also have some impressive snow storms and periods of extremely cold weather. Mr. Comfortable and I were, we thought, well prepared for winter events until he was in the middle of his cancer treatments. The actual temperature was -15 degrees F and with the wind chill the cold was utterly bone chilling. Our furnace died on the first night of that cold snap. And that’s when I discovered that our winter storm preparedness plan needed some work!
