Yay, here comes the vaccination fever! I think I’ll spend the rest of the day in bed. Totally worth it, though; I’m sure I’ll feel better by tomorrow, and won’t have to worry about becoming unexpectedly dead from COVID. Get your vaccinations, people! 💉🦠🌡🛌🦸🏼

Fun fact: this picture was the first time Jenn saw me (we met online in 1993), and yet she wanted to continue the relationship. Our backstory: dejus.com/2020/04/02/0725/

For week 19 of my 52 years celebration, a selfie from my early 20s (before they were called selfies). 

I just got my second COVID-19 vaccination today (Moderna), at a drive-thru clinic again. Less busy than the first time, no waiting to get the shot. Easy, and now I have superpowers! Well, in two weeks when I’m “maxxinated”; the best birthday present. Such a relief. 💉🦠

On the homestead blog: I’ve just added a summary page for the bee shed project. Check it out for an overview of the project, with links to each of the individual blog posts.

On the homestead blog: yesterday I evicted the chickens from our fenced vegetable garden, and prepared it for planting — which Jenn subsequently did. 🌱 yellowcottagehomestead.com/202

Some of our ducks rooting around in the back lawn. 🦆

Sorry chickies, it’s time to evict you from the veggie garden, as we prepare it for planting. Thank you for cleaning it out over winter. I enticed them out via the mealworm roller toy, though Buffy looks disappointed by the closed gate. 🐓

On the homestead blog: for Flock Friday this week, an assortment of chicken and duck pictures, plus more of nesting ducks and broody chickens. 🦆🐓 yellowcottagehomestead.com/202

For week/year 18 of my 52 years celebration, I actually don’t have any pictures of me from age 18 to 20, so I’m jumping ahead to a photo of my 21st birthday. 

Looking from the fountain garden towards the cat house, with a whirligig, irises, rocks, maple tree, bird feeders, the cat house, and more visible. 🌼

A bright spot of color caught my eye in the flowerbeds. 🌼
