Planning a Transformation

Y’all remember our gross pool?

With all the thistles in the summer?

Well, we hope to do something about that next spring and summer.  Our hope is to cover the pool with a deck or something.  We’re not sure we want to fill it in, because someday we may want to use it.  But right now, it’s all just an eyesore.

If we cover it, the area becomes usable space for chairs or tables.  We’d like to take down the fence and get rid of all the weeds.

We’ve got a chicken yard on one side of the poultry barn, and we’ll probably add another on the other side as we increase our flock.  So part of the north side of the fence may remain as part of the chicken fence.  But we’re hoping the rest will come down; it would really open up the sight-lines on the property.

Maybe someday we’ll have a pool.  But for now, we’d like to enjoy as much of our property as we can.

About Karen Koch

I like the old-fashioned lifestyle. All this new-fangled stuff baffles me sometimes. I cherish living out in the country, raising chickens and rabbits, planting fruit trees, and enjoying a slow life filled with beautiful words and ideas. I don't always achieve a slow life. I teach middle school English and manage a little burgeoning farm with my husband, and somewhere in the midst of that, I try to find time for writing, running, knitting, reading, and playing the ukulele. And sometimes, I actually succeed.
