If i blow it this time I will not try to blog again today. I don't know what button I hit by mistake to lose everything and not get it posted, but I did.
It is hard to realize that 4 days have gone by since I last posted. I don't know what I have been doing and have little to show for the 4 days.
Friday Michael, Shanteal and the three boys were over for most of the day and it was GREAT. I believe it was one of the best visits we have had in a long time. The boys had me in stitches with their antics. I still laugh about some of their shenanigans.
Today I spent more time working on the new chicken house. I did more bracing on the frame, attached the two wheels and have almost got all the floor put down. in order to finish the floor, I have one more piece of wood to cut and fit. Then it will be time for the sides, door and roof. I believe it will be a good thing to get the chicken separated.
During the days I open the gate and leave the chickens have the run of the yard. I had not let them out for a couple of days and I did today. The bantums did not want to go back into the pen and house. The bigger birds went right in, but the little ones decided they were going to huddle down on the patio. I had to chase them to get them on their way out to their house. I hope that once I get it all made, we will have a day or two with sun shine and above freezing so I can slap some paint on it.
That is about it for this time around. I am tired and am thinking about turning in so I can maybe get up at a decent time in the morning.
