Homestead happenings....I wanted to move our new baby chicks into a secure area with their mama so that they would have a little more room. The fencing for this pen is too big for baby chicks and I only had some odds and ends of chick wire, so I had Columbus cut the chick wire into two foot high strips. Then I attached the chick wire to the fence with zip ties. We ran out of chick wire, so I repurposed our old living room curtains by cutting them into strips and then having the kids weave them into the fence. The chicks are still so small that they can get through the chick wire, but when they get a little bigger we will be all ready.
|Goodness from chickens. This chicken yuck was aged, so I put it near Sugar Kings corn patch.|
|I ran out of straw before I got all of the garden done, but at least we got a start on it.|
|Unhooking the wood stove to put in the A/C.|
|The picnic table in it's natural state of varying crafts.|
|JoJo loves Christmas all year round. He got these little angles from a lady at a yard sale, brought them home, and put them in with some mint.|
|Happy the Beagle gets her nails painted.|
|The Rose starts to learn to ride a bike.|
|And there was enough fabric left over for another hammock.|
|And three little capes.|
|Homemade BBQ sauce....once you make your own you'll never go back to store bought.|
|JoJo's Robot - made from a Kitchen Aid mixing bowl, egg basket and magnet letters.....I thought it was clever.|
Like the title says - just some randomness from May. I took Columbus to the Nashville airport today for his trip west to see my dad. I hope that he makes many great memories this summer. Yesterday, we attempted to butcher our meat birds, and I finally setup my RainSaucer freebie to test it out - so, posts on both of those things coming soon.
