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


Tax return

I've been spending a lot of time worrying myself sick over Artemesia's health. I don't really want to go into the details until everything pans out one way or another. So, instead, I'll share the best technique I've found so far to block out worries between hand feedings --- income tax returns.

Unfortunately, twelve pages only took a couple of hours since I'd crunched the business numbers in January. Now what kind of busywork will I come up with to keep my mind off a sick goat? I'm not quite desperate enough to mop the floor...yet.

To the birding end, maybe you can do a bird inventory over time, since you've been there? Some of your birds are permanent residents, too--Could you explain that?

keep us posted!--love, mom
