For nine months, I’ve been working in Sacramento, California. I’ve met some great people and learned a lot of new stuff here. My time in Cali ends this weekend. I’m moving on to a new contract.
I’m going to miss aspects of my life here.
Here’s a pic from the backyard yesterday…
There are cows and sheep out there, living the way they should.
This morning, there were a couple mallards in the front yard…
She’s on the grass and her man is in the flowerbed to the left.
I got some experience starting plants from grocery store fruit.
I built a wind turbine…
I had some fun building a generator out of Peltier coolers…
I spent a lot of time at Soil Born Farms…
I dropped a few pounds and I’m in better shape too.
The biggest part of my time here are friends made.
Nick, you’re the best roomie. I’ve learned a lot from you and had a lot of fun working projects, movies and just goofing around. Thanks for getting me into bikes! You’re a great friend. Hopefully I’ll talk you into moving my way!
Cali, it’s been great. Thanks for some good memories!
Looks like you had a great time. Tell me about starting new plants from grocery store fruit. I have some ground I need to do something with. I like the top photo. Where is your next contract? Is it close to home? Glad you have a new contract. I prayed you would.
Love Aunt Chris
I’ve started some Korean radishes… http://thishappyhomestead.com/2014/03/07/korean-radishes/
and limes and lemons… http://thishappyhomestead.com/2014/01/28/grow-limes-lemons/
I’ll message the rest to you.
Got another job lined up??
Yep! Best of all, it should allow me to be home more often!
Congratulations…still in Smog Land…aka California?
Yep. Coming home early next week.
Jeremey, sounds like a great experience! But I know you and Charity both look forward to more time together. However, you have memories to pack and bring home with you that no one else will ever have.
