I tell you what's funny. I got more comments on yesterdays post on doing nothing than the post on a project I worked on day and night for several weeks. All I can do is chuckle and scratch my head on that one.
It is back to work for three days and off for another five. Next week is the week I prove to myself I have what it takes to live the way they did back in 1833. They may try and hurt me making the adventure only last a few minutes or if I can man up and take it, it may last all day. Either way I plan to enjoy every minute of it and try and learn a thing or two.
I have seen and read about places kinda like this where you can go and live for a few weeks and learn. I think it was a place called Rabbit Run or something like that but I cannot remember. From what I can recall, it is a ban of hippies living in the sticks and live off nothing but renewable energy and only using what they grew on the farm. It was part of the green movement. I guess they get there money from having workshops and people pay to learn. I would do it.
They came up with several things I liked. The grain silos they converted into houses was one of them. What I did not care for was the fact they used there own poo for fertilizer. Yes it was composted down and done right but I just don't see it. It was had enough to get the girls to use the outhouse much less have them go in a bucket with sawdust. Never the less, I would like to try living 100% green for a while, I could improve the Mini Farm so much if I got the chance to learn and live that way.
Try and stay cool tomorrow.
