It is so cold that my shelves are taking so long to dry, I still have not put stuff back, I painted the shelf above the washer and dryer today too. So Jeff picked up mexican food for supper, I must admit it was the worst I have ever eaten, said it was beef, but I don't know.
Oh and it's so sad we have these danged cats running around, I don't know who's they are but it drives me nuts, I love most of God's creatures, snakes and spiders, not so much, but I don't think cats are outside animals, I say they should be inside, so anyway, I can't remember seeing the dove on the nest the last couple days and we have had some cold nights, so I went out today and the little dove is still there, it is bigger than it was, I could not tell if it was moving or not and I was not touching it, but I hope I am wrong, but I kinda think it is dead and it makes me sad. Jeff said that is nature, but grrrr…..if one of those cats got the Mum.
Tonight I went out to change the girl's water, I was only gonna let Fiji run around while I did it cause she sticks to me like glue and I can pick her right up to put her away unlike some of the others. So I got the big girls water jug out and I had just pushed the door shut but not latched it, I figured that would be good, but nope it wasn't long and I turned around and they were all out, they must have pushed on the door. So I let them all hang out…of course Alice and Clara were being mean. In fact one time Clara was running after Fiji and I yelled "Clara stop it right now!" and she did this weird thing with her tail feathers like she fanned them and wiggled them and I think she was giving me the bird.
So I told Jeff whenever we make the coop way bigger we need to have two sections, and have Fiji, Stella and Gertie together and Alice and Clara together. Cause I am thinking down the road whenever we get new chickens, we will have to separate the young ones so we will be all set. Plus I think the next time we get more I want them younger, cause I really love all of them but I feel more connected to Fiji because we raised from a little chick, or she was probably more chick/teen, but anyway, she is so tame.
This is the last card from class, and it is cased from the uber talented Renee Van Stralen. I had done this one before, but that time I did Renee's card exactly, this time I just changed it slightly to use the DSP the girls got at class. Thanks Renee for your inspiration!
