Dirt Bath

Good Day Reader’s!

How was your Friday? Mine was good. I went into the office to do a few hours of work and then met My Man for a late lunch at a new restaurant called Common Quarter. I had their fish sandwich which was good but I would have liked a little more sauce on it. My Man had the hamburger with homemade chips. When we got there, there was a table full of ladies that were so loud. As in it hurt my ears loud! Even our waiter mentioned it. Over all the food was good, our waiter was nice and the place was pleasant (especially of the table of ladies left). We will go back and try it for dinner soon.

Go away...sleeping.

Last night we chilled in front of the TV waiting for the season premiere of Grim. We have been watching it since it first aired. The Boy got into it to, so we watch it as a family. There is a lot of “close your eyes!” moments and a few times, he has left the room because it was to scary for him. I am glad he knows when it is too much for him. ┬áIt is funny, he remembered everything that happened last season but can’t remember what he did at school that day. I guess he has his priorities!

First Fire of the season

We had a fire for the first time this season. Simon was all over that. He loves to sit in front of the fire and get all toasty. Timber wasn’t all that interested but to be honest, I think Grim was to scary for him!

Saturday

The Boy had piano/guitar this morning, so while he was getting his rock on, I went to Lowes to pick up a few things. I wanted to make a dirt bath for the girls and read on Pinerest that a mixture of sand, dirt and DE was great for hens. I had already ordered the DE so all I needed to do was get some sand and dirt.

I mixed all three items together in an old, used one time, cat litter box I found in storage. I put it under the plank where the run roof is covered so it won’t get rained on. I picked up Turbo and put her in it and she promptly hopped out. Oh well. I hope they check it out.

Ready for some hens!

I also picked up three bales of pine straw to put around the coop and the area where the old coop use to be. I am never sure how many bales to get or how much will fit in my car. Turns out I could use another three bales and could have fit two more in my car. Maybe tomorrow.

I think someone is trying to hide.

  1. Love the pic of Panny…it’s been chilly here…my girls are cuddled up together in their basket. They keep other warm. I have to say that fire looks welcoming…

  2. I agree with Bob it is also part of my day. It takes time to get use to new things they will love the dirt bath but could it smell like cat’s? Watching Alabama so far so good but never write off Tennessee. Have a great evening, love you lots Momee.

    • RTR! No, it is a gas fire place. I think at one time it was wood burning because next to it is an area where you could store wood.
