Mama Freemans Easter Thoughts

Easter is a time for a fresh start . All the sins of the past are forgiven.
This is so evident in our gardens. I might have neglected things last fall but a little raking and a big fire makes things so neat and tidy .
Gives me a thrill!
I incubated some eggs and hatched out 8 little cuties. I am going to leave them in the house till Monday. I want the grandkids to see them.
It's funny but I have 2 pit bulls that live in the house and they do not bother with the chicks at all. Some people give them a bad rap but I believe its what I as the owner allows.
Living in harmony is what its all about.
Have a Harmonious Easter my friends!

Ma ma Freeman builds a chicken coop

The moment you have all been waiting for is here! I made a design on graph paper, collected my tools including the cordless drill I recieved for my birthday. Thanks Johnny, Autumn and the Arnolds.
The chickens kept me company while I was working and at times made so much racket with their squacking that I could hardly listen to my book on tape. I am always plugged in when I work.
I have so much pride in this project. After breaking my pelvis in Sept 08 I thought I would not be able to do what I used to do but am so pleased to discover that I am as good as ever and
am back! Next I work on the outdoor run. And yes there will be more pix.
