Chicken coop run !

Today i worked on the run for the chickens. I decided to use pvc instead of wood. One , it's cheaper , two, it never rotts and its a quick easy install. I sunk the ends in the ground about 16" and put a tee on the end so they could'nt work their way out of the ground.I'm going to tie wrap the wire to the pvc . I need to get it ready cause the chickens come next week. Katie painted the spare bedroom and put a border up, looks nice !

Odds and Ends ....

Easter weekend was awesome , the kids came to visit with our grandson. Jayden is getting big , he's walking , in fact he took me for a long walk. He also likes to throw rocks in the pond !I have been doing alot of small things i needed to get done. I put a new battery in our neon, fixed some rust spots on the jeep, worked on the hen house, put up our street sign our neighbors gave us, built more shelves. Since the majority of the work on the house is done i thought i would find a job to keep me busy. My neighbor Butch works for the largest oil drilling company in the area. So he says , why don't you go down and see if he's got work for ya, so i did. I start Monday as the owner's personal groundskeeper on his horse ranch. So i have been busy catching up some stuff around here before i start. I will be working on my spare time around the house and plan to keep posting as i can.

She needed a bath !

So i mowed the pastures today and put a latch on the hen house . There was something i really needed to do , take my bike out of our storage container and give it a bath ! It was a beautiful day and i could hear her screaming to get out. I hav'nt had her out but one day last year cause i was so busy with the house, this year will be different.

Doors , rolls and fire ...

The last few days i worked on cleaning up the brush and trees that were pushed out of the way when the well was first put in. We want to put an outside kitchen in that area. I built a new fire pit there too. Katie has been experimenting on baking dough and rolls. She made pizza dough the other night that was to die for. Today she made rolls that tasted better then the amoroso rolls we left in Pa. ! I knew it would'nt take her long, she has become quite a pioneer. I built and hung the hen house doors today and made a sliding door for them to enter the outside pen. Next i have to run the wire fence and make a perch for them and were all set. Katie primered the spare bedroom and will start painting tomorrow because our guests will be here for Easter weekend !
