Everyone was enjoying the snow today!
Snow has been minimal here so it was kinda nice to enjoy it for once, though it was only 15 degrees with windchill of about 5 degrees! Of course, the animals love the snow regardless of the temperature:)

It is 90 degrees outside.
The "feels like" temperature is 98.
That is ridiculous.
My mission today: be creative and productive inside with the air conditioning:)
Last week my mom and I went down to Charm in Amish Country and stopped at Miller Dry Goods, a favorite sewing store of ours. I fell in love with this sheep pattern, "Sheepish Grin". After spending $112 dollars ( they were having a great sale;) and listening to my mom tell me I was never going to sew any of this stuff, I had to prove mom wrong!
So today, I dusted off my old sewing machine and decided to make a blanket. Ok, I have to confess, I bought a brand new sewing machine on Black Friday last year. I just took it out of the box today, like actually cut the packing tape to open it....lol. It has 50 built in stitches and 87 stitch functions and a bunch of offer things. I put it back in the box till my mom can supervise me....it was too overwhelming to deal with and I didn't want to crush my creative momentum.
I am almost done with the blanket.
The blanket will be perfect when........
.......it's snowing outside.......
......and temperature is below 32 degrees.
Wow, I almost got a chill thinking out it!
Back to my sheep sewing project...... don't want to break the momentum:)

Living with chickens does not come without its challenges.
Common sense sometimes never makes sense.
I wanted chickens so I built a chicken coop for the chickens......
I even had nesting boxes installed so they could lay their eggs......common sense.
Now this is where common sense becomes foggy.
Enter the lawn mower bag.
The chicken in the lawn mower bag.
Common sense really becomes distorted now.
Egg in the lawn mower bag.
All that money I spent on a chicken coop and all I needed was a lawn mower bag.
Again my college education failed me.
Who said chickens weren't smart?
