Some days I have no problem starting a post. I know exactly what I'd like to say and what photos I'd like to show you. And then other days... not so much.
Well, today is one of those other days. I feel like I'm back in Junior High/Middle School in my Creative Writing class and I have no idea what to write about or how to even begin.
So, I'll start with some photos...
Country Boy and I picked up this antique wheel while visiting his home state of Arkansas.
Antiques such as this cost a fortune here in Florida; not so in Arkansas. Maybe because antiques are more plentiful there, perhaps?
Country Boy acquired this cast iron horse before we were married. I'm not sure what it was used for but I like it and have always used it as a plant hanger in my gardens. Do you think it was an old hitching post at one time?
Today, my Dad and I are going to be working on the duck pond. We'll be doing some more digging and hopefully getting some plumbing installed.
The ground naturally slopes towards the woods so we're going to install a drain and a valve outside the chicken/duck run where it can easily be drained into the woods or into buckets to water plants. This will make the pond easier to empty and clean.
The overall size of the pond will be 10x10.
Once the pond is finished, we'll begin to enclose it. While I would love for the chickens and ducks to have access to the property we just have far too many hawks and predators around here making it too difficult for my Roostie boy to keep an eye on his girls!
With that, it's time to get to work my friends!
I hope you have a lovely day!
Till next time,
