I did not mention it in my last post, but Marc was not well on that trip. His health continued to deteriorate. In March, we "officially" learned that he had Pancreatic Cancer, and he passed away the day before Easter in April. Needless to say, things have been ... well, different. My neighbors, family and friends have been wonderful and very supportive and I'm grateful!
I'm planning to turn my Cabin in the Woods into a homestead. I'm going to plant a garden (with a fence -- the deer are already eating Marc's bananas!!). This will be quite a challenge, because besides the animals (not just deer), the area is largely shaded. I'm also considering getting some chickens, so I'll hopefully be more self-sufficient.
