Chickens in a hurry!
This is what I see when I go outside. The chickens see me and make a dash to where ever I am and then follow me around.
They act like I never feed them. Poor starving chickens.
This is what they love...
Scratching up scratch that I toss on the ground. I throw the corn out in handfuls into four different spots so the bossy hens don't eat it all.
I still haven't got out to the coop and changed the straw. I'm bad. I covered up the old straw with new straw and promised the chickens I would be back to work in the coop as soon as I get done painting in the house.
There is a definite feeling of Fall in the air. It is supposed to heat back up in a few days, but I think we are going to have an early Autumn and Winter this year. Kristine said that the birds that migrate have already left. I want to get the painting finished while I can still leave the windows open at night.
I painted away the orange and now the wall is a lovely apricot color. I'm going to paint the entry tomorrow and would like to paint the insides of the upper kitchen cupboards too. Maybe I'll have enough time if I get started early.
The other reason I decide to go with orange when I picked up the paint last year is because the kitchen area in the den area is orange formica. And instead of painting it or getting a new counter over there I thought I would just go with the color.
There is a small area over the slider in the entry that I will keep orange. I'll paint the other three walls apricot. I'm having fun painting. I'm slow because I'm painting with a brush. There are so many windows and doors that trying to paint with a roller would be a waste of time and paint. I'd have to clean the roller and there would be a lot of paint lost in the roller.
The shelf is painted again and I'm letting it dry overnight before I try and hang it tomorrow.
