We’re three months into being Tennesseans

Well, we’ve been residents of Tennessee for 12 weeks, and we’re ahead of schedule. Though I will not disclose all of the work we’ve completed on our homestead, last Friday was a busy day.

Barn Swallows in our porch pillars

I saw remnants of mud above this pillar and thought it was from the wasps we see around, so I was getting ready to spray it. But thankfully before spraying, we saw Barn Swallows landing there. When we sit on the porch, they make it clear that we’re not welcome. Though my video did not
