Happy Halloween!

Some of the chickens came up on the porch in hopes
of getting some of the pumpkin brains and to watch Kristine.
But then just as I was going to take a lot of photos Morgan showed up.
And she shooed the chickens away. Morgan wants her dinner not pumpkin.
This year Kristine made a smiley face pumpkin.
One year she made a dragon that went all around the pumpkin.
But we couldn't find a camera and there are no photos.
TaDa! And here they are in all their splintery wonder. My planter boxes are actually together. Well, to be truthful each board has only one nail on each end. Tomorrow I need to drill some more holes and use the power screw driver and put in a bunch of screws to hold the boxes together securely. Also, since there is still a lot of wood laying around I think I will look around and see if I can't build something else in the garden. Then I won't have to haul it away.

Kristine brought home pizza for dinner. Yea!

[3 eggs today]

Kristine will carve the pumpkin when she gets home and I'll post a photo of it and a photo of how far I have gotten building planter boxes. The other night she carved the apple with her teeth. Pretty cute! An apple pumpkin. Well, the battery for the drill finally charged and I have no more excuses. Back to work.

You are very handy with the tool kit. The boxes look great. Are you going to grow vegetables or flowers?

Callie said...

Becky's Barnyard: Thank you! Hope you had a fun Halloween too.

Gus, Louie and Callie: Thank you all!

diane: Power tools make work more enjoyable. I would hate to cut all that wood with a hand saw. Kristine and I are going to try growing vegetables. But, I'm going to grow some flowers in there too.
