I painted the coop tractor so the weather will not distroy the wood. We had left over pain that was used on the extieror of the house. It is supposed to have those additives in it. The girls (chickens) are growing except for little angle she is still very small. No more roosters I am left with 6 laying hens out of the 10 babies I got for $20. so I still made a good investment.
I so want a rain barrel I want to use the good rain to water the earth, it will give a water that is clear of tap waters chemicals and clorine and such, and be free once I get set up. It so seldom rains here, but when it does... This tells how to make my own:)
Daddy Man and the Kids built a table for the kids fort. It was cool to watch them as Daddy made them measure the width (having to teach what that was) and the length. It was so cool to see Dove and Dash take turns sawing and drilling. Dash was too easy to give up. We were able to talk him into sticking with it. Then it happened he drilled a screw in! hooray! He felt so good about doing it. My man is so patient! We all just kept cherring him on. Dash gives up way too easy and so we are trying to change that by giving him oppertunities to persevier. That means we get to exercise persaverence too! HHHHA!
We tried to do a post for the clothes line and ran into solid caliche' ( Hardened clay)! Handy Man Dad, is going to see if he can rig a removable hook over the top of the fence wall. I need to touch base with the neighbor to see if he is cool with it. I think it sound so much better than a whole in the yard to mow around and digging in this hard earth is no fun! I found the 6 (?) line for cheep at big lots last winter. I am so looking forward to having it up.
The compost and soil is coming along well. I better tend to a few tasks before church. We are having a play date after. Enjoy your morning!
We got the book shelves set into the living room and the cook book shelf into the kitchen also. Now I just need to find the books to put on them:)
