Juggling Seven Balls

The living room, about three weeks ago

The living room, about three weeks ago

I apologize to you, faithful readers, for the long gap in my posts. Here’s the brain dump so you know what’s been going on:

  1. Wood stove, flooring, painting, jackhammering of concrete (inside the house!)
  2. Added to the farm: Guinea Fowl Keats
  3. Soon to add to the farm: Yellow Labrador dog
  4. Figuring out well drilling (may or may not hit an aquifer)
  5. Figuring out rain water catch systems
  6. Digging a pond, building berms
  7. Revising a manuscript for an apologetics book
  8. Developing a class on Scripture for St. William’s (I’ll teach it this fall)
  9. Soon to continue editing of If Protestantism is True
  10. Working longer hours at regular job–company profits must go up and to the right!
  11. Taking care of family

As Prince Humperdinck says in the Princess Bride: “I’m swamped!”

Thank you for sticking with me through it all! I just looked at the date and realized this blog just passed its Eighth Year Anniversary. Glory to God. May we do all things in and with Him.

    Man, and my to-do list seems exhausting. But nowhere does it say “use jackhammer indoors”. I’ve enjoyed seeing this new transition! Thanks for sharing parts of it!

      Thanks Kristy. We would have more pictures but now that we have dumb phones the transfer process to the computer/blog post is painful. :)

        I had a dumb phone until about two weeks ago. It’s so… quaint ;) Must feel good to have such full days of hard work though, even if tiring.

  3. Congratulations, Devin! And as Miracle Max and his wife say in The Princess Bride: “Have fun storming the castle!”

      Thanks Daniel. We are building our own little Kingdom of Patria here. And I have not forgotten about having another session with you about my historical fiction book!

      • I really admire what you and your family are building out there. And yes, it does remind one of a family farm in Patria! As for your writing, I’m here when you need me. Cheers!
