farm things

I wonder if I will ever make this blogging thing part of my routine. I am horridly sporadic in my postings and I've been wanting to renovate the blog and make it all pretty for about three months... Ah well. Life gets in the way.

Life, though, is pretty good, so I don't mind that it keeps me too busy to write on here regularly. My family visited me this past weekend, which was great. My sister was back in the states for a conference (she's been studying in Ireland) so she was able to come visit as well. We looked around campus to show my brother what it's like - he'll be graduating high school in May - and then headed an hour south to my boyfriend's house. His family is incredible, and I adore spending time with them on their little farm, and it was a great weekend.

We mostly relaxed, but then on Sunday we took a trip to the nearby State Park and took a hike, which was great. I finished two rolls of film that I've been working on for over a month. I also got to see our chickens, and my mom saw them in person for the first time. She's been wanting to get chickens for a few years now, but the area my family lives in is too suburban for that.
