A town day...lots of stuff to tend too and it took hours to get it all wrapped up.
Barely home in time to get chores done before dark ,,leaves me feeling rushed and like my
day was none productive. But town stuff has to be done..so tis.
Tomorrow is supposed to be a warm day before another cold front rolls in..so I am getting
ready to do some changes to my lil farm. We had been thinking to add on to the feed room, it is sort of crowded with too many barrels and not enough room for all the Stuff . Then as ideas do..I woke thinking..I have a big chicken house but few chickens. A tiny feed room but lots of feed and hay to store. So why not put chickens in smaller area , they can stay warmer being sort of forced to roost in a group and the smaller area does stay warmer and dry. Move the feed to the larger area where the hay can be stored as well! Not exactly a duh moment but definately a...why did I not think of that before.! I have always had a larger flock and marketed the eggs. Now I have what might be called a back yard flock and am happy with it.
Get enough eggs for me, the kids and a few neighbors. So tis good!
Not sure I can get that big change done tomorrow as there is a door opening to make and then move the door, small chicken sized entry door..but that can take hours to create. Easier to frame in a big door than a tiny one, weird as that sounds. It would be nice to move the birds before the cold though..ahh we will see. I tend to think that ..ah I can get it done..and then am very irked at me when it doesn't go as I think it should. The ole can't do what I used to do in the time I used to do it syndrome!
But if you try to do in a rush...it usually doesn't work out..so need to rein me in and apply some patience to my plan I guess!
For now I have dedicated evenings to the afghan that I have been working on. Got to get that beast done! I will never make that pattern again..although it looks to be a nice one..takes too long to make for me. I like to have bulky yarns and patterns that make up rapidly, this one has tiny little cables every few stitches...grrrrrrrrrr...suppo
sed to be created with love for loved ones..it is stretching my lil self to my patience limit..so yep time to apply and get done!
I am hoping for snow..if it is going to be dark and cold..then couldn't it please snow!!
Here's to a good week..winding up one challenge and on break from another. So a few extra moments to focus..on the afghan..heee hee
Nite ya'al..and to those that do....happy knitting!!
