You know when I spotted this gal at the thrift store for $1.99 I had to have her. I think she will reside on the window sill.
Yesterday I mowed the front lawn. I only do one lawn at a time. Now you may ask why I do the lawn and the answer for now is that I love it and am available to do it. Our oldest did it for about seven years but with school and the hospital she is never home and number two has many allergies which keep her from doing it. Number three may learn soon but she is a big helper in the yard and keeps number four busy while I am working. My husband does it when he has time but because of long work hours I prefer him to spend any chore time on projects I cannot do.
We took the girls out the last couple of days for some time in the sun on the lawn. They love it and take a big nap after they head in. I clean their box everyday. Maybe not necessary but it smells better if I do. When we move them to the garage in a bigger box I won't be able to do it but for now I am.
Everything is blooming so beautifully right now. Love spending time out there with the warm sun on our backs.
I am trying a method of growing potatoes in a large container. This pot is enormous. About three feet tall but I fear the inside is not getting enough sun. No action yet. You let them sprout and grow a couple of inches and then keep adding more soil and repeat the process. Not sure this is going to work.
Been clearing out where the chicks will go eventually. This space looks really narrow here but is actually about three feet wide and twenty feet long. It gets midday sun. I am about half done. The coop will be at the far end with lids on the laying boxes so I can come around the other way and get the eggs but I will be able to go in the front way to clean the enclosed run and feed the girls. I was so tired when I came in. I have the hands of a man I swear and I wear gloves but they just still get so dirty out there.
