Rice, WA. #latergram

One of my BFF’s, Selena, came over for a visit a couple of weeks ago. We drove around the countryside, and she fell in love with Rice, WA. There’s a great farm out there and I sure hope Selena gets to come back for a class there at some point. Above, this was my favorite picture of greater metropolitan Rice.

Now contrast Rice with greater metropolitan Loon Lake.

Took this picture to remember what our future yard once looked like. #latergram #goodlifejones

We buried some wire, conduit, and pipes, leaving the side yard ripped up as hell. I took this picture to remember what it once looked like. In the spring, I hope to have this seeded with native grasses.

And here’s a picture of me on the backhoe because the novelty of me being on a backhoe never really wears off.

And finally, here’s a wooly mystery. Sometime last week or so, three sheep showed up on the property. (Ironically, this happened just as Mindy and I were in the middle of Haruki Murakami’s A Wild Sheep Chase.) We speculated that maybe some other farmers let them go during the fires — livestock can take care of itself for the most part, so it’s a pretty common practice to release them when fire threatens a property and you have to evacuate. My sister-in-law Lisa identified them as Barbados Blackbelly sheep, which is primarily a meat sheep, and if we could catch them I would not be opposed to eating them. However, I haven’t seen them since I took this picture last Sunday. It’s probably because they know I want to eat them.

Hope everyone has a good Friday!
