A note from Oregon! Picture of our new home on the range in Stayton, Oregon a town of 8,000. (for more pic’s send me a friend on facebook (Lori Maravilla) and check out El Rancho. Our first project was the a shed to get the tools out of the rain. That is Chuy’s there on the roof. The weather has been cool, it will take some getting used to, today Tuesday we are at 36 degrees, and it chills to the bone.
But once you start working the cooled does not seem that bad. The land is breath taking in all directions. I have never slept so good and woke to such peace.
This is the first 5 acres. We plans to raise chickens in this part of the farm. That house in the background is the neighbor Ralph’s house, and a man of few words. Behind his plot of land is the Santiam River and is a tributary of the Willamette River. I here that the salmon run through it every year.
This natural beauty is a flock of geese in flight over our little house heading for Canada. What a sight, we have seen about a dozen or more of these flocks pass over head in the past week. Happy Holidays everyone, more to come as the days go on. Namaste, Lori
