Woohoo... Yes, daring! Me! It was 3am and I had a commission for a 9"x12" painting, which in itself is such a frightening thought to me. So, I took colors that were left on my palette from the previous day's paintings and played with the colors.

We should all be a bit more daring this New Year.
Thank you for the lovely visit.
Hugs,

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
