Rainy Day, House Cleaning, Some Work and Some Carrots

Friday December 14, 2018 Guerneville CA.

A bit of rain to deal with today

It was raining lightly when I got it going this morning, more like a drizzle.

I went out and fed and watered the chickens and went back in the house to warm up.

A little house work

I did some vacuuming until my back said to quit so I sat down for a break.

Rain picked up and then slowed down

Eventually it rained a bit harder and then mostly let up so I went outside to get something done.

Making a roof frame

I split the 2×4’s I bought yesterday in half with my table saw and got the drill out and drilled pilot holes where needed and screwed the roof frame together to expand the chicken coop roof a bit.frame


While I was working on that I let the chickens out to graze near the end of the day and finished screwing the frame together and that was as far as I got on that today.

Carrots are sure good

As I was waiting for the chickens to come in and roost for the night I pulled a few carrots out of my brother’s carrot patch, washed them and ate one as they are getting bigger. Nice and crisp and sweet.carrots


On the roost

Once the chickens were all on the roost I shut the gate and brought some firewood into the house for the woodstove and went in for a nap and that was my day for a wet one.

    Slow but sure, you are getting the roof done for the chickens.
    Those carrots look big and I’ll bet they are tasty!
    Hoping you get a dry day tomorrow (today).
