Well, hubby and I have been on a work trip this week, during which I have been quite bored and been able to read books that I have wanted to read for quite some time! It has been very nice, even though hubby has been gone for most of it. But we have taken a few chances in the evenings to do a few fun things in the area, but for the most part we like our vacations pretty boring. :)
So, I'd like to take the chance to post about a few things that I have had in the queue to blog about for a while, this way I should be slightly caught up. You remember how we made the pvc and netting run for the chickens? We use that now as an attachment onto the coop so that they have a lot more run area and it seems to be working pretty well!
Here is a picture of Parker, the partridge rooster...He has so many nice colors and is really filling in to be a very nice looking rooster! I'm afraid that Basil is still the number one rooster though!
We decided to finish off the garden, so I picked all the carrots and all the rest of the watermelons, whether they were ready or not. I think we are going to end up feeding all the watermelons to the chickens because we kind of have to be in the mood for watermelon, and we haven't really been in the mood for it. But...the chickens are absolutely in love with watermelon and I know they are hoping that all the cucumbers I take out to them are watermelons...I can see the disappointment when they discover they are cucumbers, hehe...
And, alas, here is the garden. I cut out the tomato plants from their mangled cages and pulled them from the ground. I wasn't going to use any more tomatoes and decided it was time to call it done. It was fun though, wasn't it? While hubby was mowing the lawn I sprayed the garden with round up just to kill anything growing in there.
On a different note, here is my finished painting from the acrylic painting class I took! Ta Da!!!!
Here is a quilt that I am in the process of kind of making. It is no where near perfect...
Also, I kind of want to learn how to knit, so I thought I would take the time to learn how this week. I have a little swatch working, but I'm still working through learning the stitches. When I finish learning them I'll post a picture of the swatch and the book that I'm learning from. I think that because I already know how to crochet that maybe that has helped maybe a little bit. Maybe not, I dunno. We will see how this goes. :) It is kind of fun though!
