The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Friendly strangers

Portal to LoveThe most unexpected perk I've run into with our chicken waterer microbusiness is the strangers I meet who turn out to be both kind and fun.  Author and blogger Julie A. Carda posted a delightful story of her chickens' introduction to the Avian Aqua Miser yesterday, making me grin from ear to ear.

The story was just the kind of flight of fancy I adore reading, so I wasn't surprised to find that Julie has written two books full of intrigue, romance, espionage, and the paranormal.  You can buy the first one either as an ebook or a paperback.  Or just download the second book for free.  (Once you decide you love it, you can head back to her site and leave a donation.)

Thanks for the story, Julie!

Julie certainly does have a gift of writing. I thoroughly enjoyed her story of the Aqua Miser and her chickens, all of whom seem to have a name.
