Bird Lady

August 27, 2011

One of our evening chores at the moment is to remove a bunch of young chickens (some of the 2 hatches of 16) from the tree outside of the electric fence and carry them back to the safety of the chook house.  Lydia and I do it together.  I get them and pass them over the fence to her.  We soon discovered that it was quicker to do as many birds at a time as possible, and I decided I just had to get a photo of Lydia loaded up with chickens.  Two on each arm and one on the shoulder is a good load.

Then of course, since I had the camera there, I got a bit carried away.

Kim is now the proud owner of a Triton workbench.  We picked it up secondhand with a dust extraction system, sliding extension table, router table, jigsaw fittings and biscuit joiner.  We are very glad we extended the workshop or it wouldn’t fit.  🙂  We have to try to find a new router bit for the biscuit joiner though as the guy had lost it.  It didn’t have a saw either but our Makita one fits in just fine.  It seems like an excellent piece of gear and Kim is finding it very useful.  He is currently building us a second composting toilet for the caravan, and has big plans for more kitchen drawers and cupboards.
I’ve been weeding my combination flower and veggie garden.  I was pleased to see that there are still some of the flower plants there, and you can see the garlic now.  However as soon as the weather warms up I imagine the grass will be trying to take over again.  It is a strange thing that the only place I can grow grass near the house is my little garden!

93 stars now.
