Hi and welcome to the Friday recap! I hope your week went well. Remember you can win $1000 cash thanks to that awesome giveaway, good luck!
Life is pretty slow at the moment. I am enjoying having the house back to myself after having about 20 guests in two weeks. But since most of you are deep in snow, I am sure I can find some entertaining stuff and a ray of sun for you. The works are almost finished on the new room’s walls.
We found some interesting stones that we tried to highlight, and are overall very happy with the progress. Except that I get awaken every day around 630am with Gagnam Style cranked up on the workers’ cellphones. Is there any Gangnam Style-free country? North Korea maybe?
I also got to start on the 90 acres development’s website and am starting the works on Monday with the architect. And even received an inquiry out of the blue to rent our house over Easter! Since the new room will be finished I am pretty sure we will be ready to rent, or would go traveling ourselves. Yay for a holiday paid by that temporary rental!!
I know many are anxious to know how Rocky Balboa, the fighting turkey rescued from Christmas is faring among the hens, well he is behaving politely now, not looking to fight anymore, and seems more in love with BF every day. The hens are laying 3-4 eggs a day which is nice but we are still mostly buying eggs and yesterday the first hen has been seating over the eggs!! I was wondering how long it would take for one of them to do it and if the eggs would go bad by laying there with no hen on top so results in three weeks, we should get a few chickens!
Traffic is up since the holidays, and I notice a few new faces around here, welcome everyone, make yourselves at home. I am very happy to have you. I am still keeping up with the 5000 words per week Yakezie challenge but as I write for other sites too only half has been for RFI this week. My 4 posts were
