Drizzly day

We visited our friend Dennis today and picked up 12 battery cores he donated from his defunct bank.  We also got to check out his latest project, repainting the dome exterior using this fancy 'Koolcoat' additive.  Supposedly it can add up to R2 insulating with these tiny foam beads (think fluffy grains of superfine sand).

In other news, we have been letting the chickens out to scratch and explore a few hours per day. But because of our tenacious coyote, these outings must be closely supervised!


  1. Happy New Year!

    Hope that drizzle continued and y'all got some rain, we ended up with about .4" here in central Tx.

    I have never heard of Koolcoat, thanks for the heads up, I'll have to look into that!


  2. Love it that my uncle dennis made the blogosphere!! He is my hero when it comes to simple living and mindful thinking!! ❤
