So I am waiting for the bank to open so that I can take out some cash so that I can go to the Amish fabric store to pick up the last of the fabric I need to make my daughter's quilt. I thought I had enough but as I was rethinking my color choices, I realized that since I had a few extra dollars - instead of buying paint for my kitchen, which really needs painted because Casper my boxer caused a fire that seared the walls about 4 years ago - instead of buying that, I would buy fabric. Because logic in my mind works that way. Any quilter would agree.
I'm also hoping to work on a new chicken coop. I have the wood - but I misplaced my cute pink electric screwdriver. Well, I didn't misplace it - I hid it from my son and my husband and now I can't remember where I hid it. I have a feeling that my husband saw it and hid it in retaliation for me misplacing his broken, cordless drill. A truly healthy, adult relationship....... The chicken coop is an ongoing project for me. I have some of my old hens and a rooster cooped. But then I have this posse of rogue chickens with a couple of roosters who live in the milkhouse. They need a coop because whenever I get used to collecting eggs in one place, they switch it up on me. Right now, they are hiding them. I can tell it is a game to them - there are 3 brooding hens who never have eggs under them. They make a racket when I check underneath them every day for eggs but nothing..... However there are always one or two or three eggs over in the far corner of the milkhouse. A week ago, I could count on getting six or seven eggs. I guess I need to follow them - I'll add that to my list of things to do today.
So now it is time - by the time I get dressed and cleaned up, I'll be able to make it to the bank and then to the quilt shop shortly after it opens.
