Have you been following the news about that crazy snow storm? I’m not ready. Not even close. We've stepped up the pace and put the fall chores in high gear. Cleaning the chicken coop is a major undertaking; it is the most daunting task of the season.
The dust and cobwebs have to be swept, the nest boxes washed and the pine shavings removed. It’s a lot like cleaning out a giant litter box.
It is no fun but has to be done to keep the chickadees healthy and happy. Not to mention making my visits with Sammy more enjoyable.
Now that it is finished I can move on to cleaning the barn. The sheep, alpacas and llamas all still need their pedicures and a couple of the boys need to have their “procedure.” Then we’ll be ready for the long winter’s nap. After we get more hay… oh and we need to drag out the tank heaters…
I keep working but my to-do list isn’t getting any shorter.
