I went to the home improvement store, and purchased some nice wood, instead of whatever is cheapest-which is what I usually do.
My middle boys measured, cut and moved the shelves around so that we have more usable space in the cabinets.
I was happy with the results.
My newest hens have begun to lay eggs.
They are white.
They are smaller than the other eggs, but I'm sure they will get larger with time.
The boys made some new nest boxes yesterday too. The new hens were in them this morning when I went to clean out the coup.
My husband and other men-children are currently hanging new closet doors to the hall closet. Apparently son #1 thought it would be funny to tackle son#3. He didn't take into account that the MIIRRORED closet doors will only give so much before they crack. Normally when things break, it is son #3 &4. For whatever reason, it always involves son #3. I don't know why, it just does. His response is that he is so Epic, all the interesting things happen when he is around. I have to give him props, at least it is a creative answer.
I finally have ripe tomatoes from my garden! I ate my first one yesterday. They were so good.
My plants are full, its just a matter of waiting for them to turn ripe.
My goals for this week are:
-Mix manure into part of the garden to prep it for fall planting. I want to see if I can really grow lettuce here year round. I plan to also plant kale and chard
-Get all the window washed.
-Go through my clothes, and prepare a give away bag.
-Make an appointment for my son's car to have the muffler replaced and to get the car through emissions so I can get it tabbed.
It will be interesting to see what I get done!
