Chicken coop above and to the left
Cookie and Ron below at my house Christmas
The above four photos are from my friend Cookie who lives a distance out of Homer. She and her husband have a very nice house in town but she prefers to stay out here in this cabin the size of my guest cottage along with her chickens (and dog) for the quite solitude and peacefulness of the area and come home on weekends. Could you do this, stay alone without running water, using a generator for power and a wood stove for heat?
Some shots of the snow around our house, Bob shoveling and playing with Kalen on a snow pile, the pheasant now coming up to the house to eat under the deck as the snow is too deep out there. I see how important it is to leave plants for them as they eat the seeds off this time of year. Yesterday I watched them as they went all over those dried up sticks out of the snow looking for seeds. An eagle got a rooster pheasant this week at the top of our driveway.
