It rained yesterday. Bill and I were attaching wire to the chicken
coop. The rain was sooooo cold beating down on us.
The puddle is something very rare on the Double Nickel.
The smell of rain is something I really cherish. Growing up
back east, I never really thought about rain. Now it is something
that I think about whenever I see a dark cloud. Mostly the dark
cloud wanders away for another day~for the facts-the average annual
rainfall in my area is 6".1
Chicks breaking bread. The more they eat together the less
bullying the bigger hens and rooster do to the smaller ones.
Looking up from the food court of the hen pen.
Some of the foods we have been eating this week.
The rosemary plant is doing great. I have dried a good amount
but it is so wonderful fresh!
A bit more of the foods we have been eating. I love onions and have
shared that little trivia fact many times. I have been drying
onions and enjoying them as a chip style snack.
As for the watermelon? It is such a wonderful refreshing snack
after being outside any amount of time.
I made chicken stock the other day. I save the peelings, ends
and otherwise wasted items of veggies and freeze them until I have
enough to make a batch of stock. This time I had the carcass
of a whole chicken so I made chicken stock.
This is a very before photo of a recent project. I will do
a before and after post on this soon.
I am closing with this photo. I am not giving up because I
broke down and placed a potholder in the vehicle. I feel like
I get second degree burns on my hands from the steering wheel.
Therefore 2016, I decided that if I use the potholder for the
steering wheel that I should use it for the gate and not be so
tough. Yep, you are reading it here first~I am not so tough.
I offered the potholder to Bill the other day...I wish the
world could have seen his expression. Bill is and always
will be tough~and that makes my heart smile!
