The past few weeks...

We built a "poor white trash" chicken coop. We still need to get a bucket of rusty nails to complete the look.

We got the garden mostly planted, plus a few trees and a hedge, just in time to go on a vacation and leave all the crucial watering up to my nephews and sister in law.

First we went to a family reunion north of Sacramento, CA. I wasn't feeling well so I didn't get pictures. Then we headed down to the Bay Area where I grew up and my in-laws still reside.

We hit Monterey to see the aquarium, and Fisherman's Wharf then, camping at Big Basin, where we heard plenty of racoons but didn't see any, and we also didn't see any banana slugs or wolverines.

We spent some time at the beach, the kids really liked this even though they were both terrified of the water.

We had a lot of fun, but my husband and I were feeling extreme claustrophobia in the bay area, and needed some space, so we headed home a day early. It's good to be home, eating normal food and not driving in the car burning up expensive gas.

I miss the beach...but I'm not looking forward to buying gas again.

The coolest part about that chicken coop is how it looks like the chickens tried breaking out through the wall, only to find that big chain link cage.
