The hens were busy cleaning up their pen when I went out to lock them up tonight. In fact, there were a few roosting, one in a nest, but the rest of the girls were all in the pen. Nobody was hanging around outside looking for the door. Maybe they like picking up their mess.
I spent some time trying to come up with some different ways to attach this board to the end of the counter. When the guys were putting on the countertop they didn't think of me having to cover up the boards they left hanging out (upper left corner.) Soooo, I'm going to have to put in some spacers. I thought about cutting the board back flush, but it is supporting the counter. Phooey! I got the little finish board up without splitting it. That was neat.
The board is going to be there, but I have to put some more spacers in, so I have some where to anchor the front piece. Now I need to find a board for the front. And cut some trim boards to cover the holes. The main thing is to just keep working at it everyday, and one day I will be done. I know I'll be surprised. There used to be a built in oven and cupboard here, but now we have the cooktop in the island the new oven is built in over there too. Tom built the oven's home and is going to get it checked over by an electrician before I can use it. Soon.
Poor Morgan is all tuckered out tonight. I found her behind my sewing machine table. After her dinner she likes to find a quiet place to lay down and think about her day. Or think about tomorrow? Or sweet friendly chickens? Or no chickens?
