Happy Monday friends! How is your day so far? Is this a holiday for you or just another Monday's Monday?
I am just about over this cold nonsense. Not quite all the way well, but getting there. We are down to the coughing and stuffy head, which I will take over body aches, fever and sore throat any day.
But enough about my ailments. Can we just talk about Downton for two seconds? Can you believe? Ugh. So stupid. So what if what's his name wanted out of his contract? Can't they just do like good old fashioned soap operas and replace the actors? I could go along and pretend that Matthew was suddenly a brunette and two inches taller, really I could.
Okay, my two seconds are up. Moving on.
Yesterday, in a fit of complete inspired genius, Sweet Man built our girls a little feeding station to sit outside their coop. This little structure, completely built out of odds and ends he had on hand, will protect their food and water from the elements and be more accessible to them during the day. Up until now our feeders hung inside the coop, but our girls are rather healthy in size and it seemed like they were always bumping them and spilling food and water out on the floor of their coop. This will help keep food off the floor of the coop (and therefore not invite varmints in) and provide easier access during the day.
The next steps are to put on a metal roof, give a cute paint job, and add the heavy duty hooks for the feeders to hang from. I cannot wait to see it finished!
PS- Don't you love his sketch?
PSS (or is it PPS?) - The book should be in stores a month from now. I. Cannot. Wait.
