…yeah right, maybe in Alaska!
I have been buying cheap gallon jugs of water and freezing them and then every day I put one in the chicken coop and the girls sit around it to stay cool. Then at the end of the day when I go to change out their water, I just use the melted water from the jug. No waste! We won't have to do it when it is not summer, and maybe they don't even need it, but I would not want to be outside in the heat.
Added since post: my sister Jax said: You are only buying like 2 jugs of water right – so that you can freeze the one and have the other one out in the coop. You are not really BUYING water for your chickens are you? Please tell me no..please tell me you only bought a couple so you could get the jugs to freeze.
Ok, my dear sister Jacqui, let me introduce myself to you…do you really think I (germ freak, but not as bad as Howie Mandel) am going to put a jug that has sat on the ground in a poopy chicken coop back in my freezer? Where we have food…that we eat? But yes, I have picked up 78 cent gallons of water and am freezing them for the chickens, (a new one each day) we live out in the desert so we pay an arm and a leg for our water, so I probably spend that much filling up the jugs out of my tap, so this is totally easier, and no poop in my freezer…ha! Plus their water jug in their thing is a gallon so that water just goes in there. I do feel bad (sorry Mother Nature) that I am wasting the plastic jugs.
you always put a smile on my face. oh yeah…colour me stupid…but I don't see where the Poppin' Pastels is on that card..can you explain - as for the Poppin' pastels on the card, this one was less obvious, I just stamped with the white craft pad and then used the white pastel over top, it dried it right away, and I think you can see the white better, cause it did not have time to soak into the paper.
I wanted to show this cute card from my demo at convention, this was showing Poppin' Pastels using the White craft pad and the pastels. I also used the cute Greeting Card Kits set, don't you just love it?

A few people have asked me how my elbow is doing, it is better, the odd coloring is almost gone, it still is a little sore in one area and I wonder if it could still be slowly bleeding inside? I have to make that dreaded well woman exam so I can have it checked then. Oh and too funny gosh I wish I had wrote down her name, I think it was Pat (it was Patti – hey girlfriend), she said she loves my TMI (too much information) stories. That made me laugh out loud. Maybe I do put too much "me" on here…ha! I guess that is the everyday this ' n that part of the blog.
You know how Carol Burnett would pull her ear at the end of each show and that meant a special I love you to her Grandmother. Well Jeff does something similar, he has "a look" when he says or does something or whatever, and it means "that does not need to be blogged" ha! Here's looking at you babe!
Well I got me some ribbon to cut.
Have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in! Make sure to get back here bright and early Friday morning, you won't want to miss it!
