You are all doing well, don't you?
When I see news reports here on the situation in the USA they only show New York. Live in the mountains of Montana probably is very different from that big city!

Chris,

If you’re looking at the green stuff on the Abbey roof and mass, unfortunately that is mulch (conifer branches from junkpoles) and not growies, but we do want to have plants growing there soon!

Inge,

We have all been sick, but we are hanging in there—we have plenty of food and plenty to do when we have the energy. Thanks for checking on us!

Thanks for Inge's answer... I think a lot of us are wondering how your coping with the physical downer.... (prayer/intentions at you all [and, of course, for everyone else, everywhere, dealing with the same :)  ox

Nancy,

It has definitely been a little stressful to be down right as we are beginning spring planting, with lots of fencing projects that need to be completed, etc., but mostly we have just been working to the best of our capacity and being gentle on ourselves. We have been getting some design and planning work done, and I have been working on indoor projects like the window quilts since being outside much gives me a chill and hurts my lungs. Orin has been a champ about carrying the workload as the only healthy person, and Josiah has been doing a lot of heavier work (like fencing) despite being sick. Hopefully things will start gaining forward velocity this next week!
