Austin move

  Since moving back to Austin in the summer of 2013, there have been many differences in our lives. While down on the Texas Gulf coastal plain, we had a strict weekly schedule of events, we now have more ability to modify our plans. For instance, we now have a good-sized garden plot with some plants already coming up by equinox day. On that same day, we became a larger group of live creatures on the lot by gaining six pullets. Two are Production Rhode Island Reds and four are Dominique. They are about nine weeks old. This will entail a major life change in daily routines.
