The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators for posting.
This week's chapters open with Grace, Margie, and Joe going to town to check on the availability of seeds for planting this year. At the hardware store a local woman insults Joe, and Margie immediately takes offense to her attitude with a statement of principle regarding all of the O'Connells and their employees. She uses a little Magic to enforce her deceleration.
On leaving the store, the women go to look at dresses and encounter a runaway buggy. Later on meeting up with Joe, he has a surprise for them. On returning home, there are clothes to be mended and bread to be baked. Margie helps Robert close the portals for the night.
Joe brings the cats in at supper time, and Margie returnes them to the stable after eating following introducing them to Macha for them to become acustom to her.
The road work and the survaying proceed rather quickly, and the chickens that they had ordered arrive early in March. Following St. Patrick's Day, Margie's Cousin arrives with a tractor from the O'Connell Realm to plow Owen's fields.
Margie and Robert secure a contractor to build the new houses and she arranges to have the hole for the basement excpvated by a relative.
Owens tenent farmers are impressed with his already tilled fields.
Enjoy these two chapters for now. More next week.
