Update: More pics of Floppy and litter:

Came home from Mass yesterday to find that Floppy has 14 live births. So far all are still well, although I had to save one this morning - Floppy had trapped it between her back and the fence. This is her 2nd litter. 

Rusty is due with her 2nd litter any day now also.

Picking tomatoes, patty pans (or scallop squash), cucumbers, kale, Swiss Chard. 

We got behind around here because of illness. I was sick more or less for a week - highly unusual for me. 

Lots going on with Turkeys growing, our first set of meat chickens in the brooder, and baby pigs dropping.

Oremus pro invicem!

Summer work

All my summer classes at two institutions have been cancelled due to low enrollment. I guess Physics and Astronomy are not so popular. Lots of time now - but not the $$. Isn't this the case?

But this is also an opportunity. Certainly the homestead and gardens have never looked better (if only rain will come!).

But I am thinking of resurrecting some old business projects, getting back into publishing a couple booklets we did before and maybe getting back into making wooden boxes.

I have started to layout the Daily Prayers for the Church Suffering booklet, which we can print ourselves in limited quantities. Too bad I didn't save the layout files. I am sorry we didn't have more. Recently I was at a wake and met an old friend who told he and his wife do those prayers together everyday.

Stay tuned.
