Well, looks like 2007 is shaping up to be a banner year in our household...

First, my illustrious hens decided to ring in the new year in the RIGHT way, by finally laying their first egg!!!! We're hoping it's the first of many, and I'm looking forward to finally enjoying some fresh omlettes.

Undoubtedly, the reason they have finally started laying is the fact that we're looking for new homes for them. Surprisingly this is not due to their egg-less-ness (we would love them if they NEVER laid eggs!) but due to the fact that we're moving-- again-- back to California. Not to the city, however. This time we're moving out to the sticks to a beautiful little town in the southern Sierras. It's farming land, there's apple orchards and people riding horses on the side of the road, goats, sheep, chickens and turkeys in people's yards; it's the next step in our journey towards a simpler life. The hubby got a job designing spaceships out in the desert, and the dogs and I are tagging along for the ride. I will be going into temporary retirement for a couple of reasons. One, the distinct lack of architecture firms in a town of 5,000, and two, the most exciting news of 2007 (besides the egg, of course), we're having a baby.....

So, not unlike 2006, (in which we moved 1,300 miles, got married, aquired our first farm animals, and created a garden out of a wasteland) 2007 is looking like it's gonna be a wild ride (in which we move 1,500 miles, add a member of the family, aquire MORE farm animals, and go on further adventures).

So there ya go! Might be late in posting, but chock full of information!
