About two weeks ago:
We went to an estate sale last week in between snow storms. It was half off day and I found this sewing box for $4.00. It was packed full of threads, needles, buttons, and elastic. It was fun going through this to see what I could find that would be useful in the sewing room. After I emptied it I gave the box to my husband for his garage. It will now be filled with his stuff.
He found a tiller for $23. A great project for him. He loves working on old things.
We went to the library and had a great time picking out some books. I was going to take a picture of the podcast booth they have and forgot. It's a neat new resource for podcasters.
Since I've been back:
Last night we had a ice storm. It's a quiet but pretty world here. We still have electricity. For that I'm very thankful!
Everyday I save leftovers for the chickens. It really saves on chicken feed. Today it was Apple peels, apple cores, blueberries the grandkids didn't eat, and leftover bread. In the background you see I also save their shells and dry them then crunch them up for calcium. No, I haven't had chickens that eat their eggs by doing that.
So, addressing the chicken feed debate that has been going on in the chicken world. We are now getting 3 eggs out of 5. Just last week we were only getting two. This happens every winter and I've had days in winters previously that I didn't get any during this time. It's dark and cold. When we get more sunlight production will pick up again. Really, though we will only get 4 out of 5 then because Miss Pretty is getting pretty old.
How's everything in your world?
