The Coop is Finally Done!! :))

And we LOVE IT!!

Well, it's almost done. we ran out of roofing nails, so the roof isn't quite finished. But who cares??

I've wanted chickens for years. And now I know that dreams do come true!! I'm adopting two 13 week-old hens from my neighbor's mom. She got caught up in the Easter chick thing, but now she's decided that they need a new home.

She named them Hansel & Gretel because she thought one was a boy. Now it will be Hanna & Gretel :) I can't wait to get my new loves.  But...we're off to Grand Rapids, MI to visit my daughter for the rest of this week. So, sometime next week the girls will move into their new home. I'll post some pics of the girls and the finished interior when I get back.

Have a great week!

Happy Day!

This is How We Roll...

Yes...there's the handy guy husband. With a coat hanger. Opening the car door!

We were at Lowe's getting more supplies for this:

Chicken Coop
We got out to the parking lot and loaded the supplies into our little Mitsubishi pick-up that has over 200,000 miles on it, I might add! I love that little truck. It just keeps going and going!

Anyway, I'm standing there waiting for him to unlock the door. I look over at him and he's looking at me. I'm like, "what?". Then it hit me. He had left the keys in the ignition!

Mike went inside and managed to get a coat hanger from someone and he did get the door open. I have to tell you though, you wouldn't believe the looks and comments we got from other people in that parking lot! You would have thought we were sporting Afros and corduroy super-bells or something. If I had a dollar for every time someone came by and said, "Wow! I haven't seen that in years!", and then laughed at us I'd have...,well, $5.00.  :)

Happy Day!
