The coop project is coming along steadily. Zina finished priming it so the new paneling wouldn’t get weathered while we build (we are actually expecting snow again Wednesday – it was 75 degrees today! – no global weirding involved! ; ) ) I have begun framing the interior. While it is much less heavy and awkward than hanging the new panels, I have been reminded of what squat-thrusts were all about in high school PE: “Up, Down, measure, lift, move, cut, haul, squat, nail, drill, up…. repeat”.
In between homework assignments Aaron came out and assembled a bench for us. It will be used to while away the hours at the Chicken Hilton watching the entertainment (of course, Basil tried to help!)
I was wounded in action today! It was kind of like being shot with a BB Gun. I had to pull out an old nail with a crowbar and in my not so subtle and gentle fashion I pulled the head right off the nail! It sparked as it left – indicating it was hot – and lodged itself in my forearm. Chicken battle wounds. What one won’t do for their hobby!
