meet my new housemates

it feels longer, but we moved in to this house only one and half week ago.
we'd been pretty busy painting the walls and putting stuff away(and still it's work in progress).
but it feels very grounded having our own space back!

so, I'd love for you guys to meet our new housemates!
they're a lovely family of three with four goats and several(fourteen to be specific) chickens!
oh oh! and a bunch of bees(tiny dots you can see in the pic below), too!!
we had been looking for a place pretty intensively ever since we came down to Portland for almost a month and half.
but it was really hard to find a 'workable' place with a child and cat...
so it took us a little more than we expected to find it,
but it was worth it and this place is so perfect!
my daughter loves the kids and animals, and there is a nice park/playground not even a block away!!

well,,, you may think this is somewhere in the country,
but it is right in the city of Portland!
Portland allows you to have up to three domestic animals without any permit.
and a lot of people do have chickens in their back yard.
it doesn't seem that hard to get a permit(for bigger animals/more number of animals) either.
pretty cool!

we're loving Portland and it feels really good to be here :)

>ちえちゃん
お乳ねー、ガンガン出てますよー!
新鮮な山羊乳ってぜんぜんヤギっぽくなくて、
あのヤギ臭さが苦手な私でもぜんぜんイケます。
あとチーズとかヨーグルトも作ってるみたいです。
私もそのうち乳搾り技術を伝授していただかないとー。
