goodbye, arya

Today we found Arya fallen in the chicken run. It is difficult to tell the cause of her demise, but from all appearances, she was most likely egg bound. She gifted us with eggs – probably around 900 total – for almost three years. Thank you, Arya. Even though you had a flighty personality and hated people, you (and your eggs) will be missed!

Loving this planter by Convivial Production.

And this vintage duffle bag from MintedxVintage.

Also, wouldn’t mind one of these concrete ring holders by concretelabhk next to my sink.


Anne is one of our oldest hens. She is the heaviest, definitely the boss of the group, but also very friendly (or fearless). She has recently started egg-eating, which usually begins when a chicken lays a weak egg and then breaks it while moving around. This habit is nearly impossible to break, and her case has gone the worse route: she now tries to eat the other hen’s eggs. Needless to say, we have a lot of waste going on over here. The only solution? Chicken soup. I don’t think I’m ready for that.

not a dreamer?

The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.
