we just got home from the Big Island where we spent 10 days living in our annual paradise of Hawaiian living. we had a great time of snorkeling with the dolphins, attending 3 David Nelson concerts, eating fresh organic Hawaiian food, seeing friends, relaxing, and best of all we found a dog and flew it home with us. her name is Bella, she is a mix of lab and Australian shepherd and she mightily survived the flight home.
today was her first romp through the mystical lands of Darkstar Oaks. she seemed to love it. now she has to adjust to a bit colder climate, but no doubt she will be fine.
Rose came back with a cold...probably from all that "airplane air" as we lost the two hours we gained on our flight out of Oakland. she took some tie dyes for ambiance for one of the concerts and sold one without really even trying. this was a vacation and not a time to go about marketing.
all was well at home when we returned...except we learned that one of our laying hens is not a hen. rather she (he) is a rooster. now to get rid of him an acquire a few more hens for fresh eggs.
all is well as i began to reacquaint myself today with the things that need to be done to keep this place going. i love it!
so...keep on keeping on as we do the same. more to come.
