Have you ever had to clean a chicken coop out that hasn't been cleaned in almost a full year? Yuck! That stuff was so thick in there. I haven't cleaned half of it and it took 3 big wheel barrels full just to do that. Whew! The shoveling didn't bother me any.(I can't vouch on how sore I'll be tomorrow though.) What bothered me was trying to push the wheel barrel in all of the mud. It wouldn't go! I could push it 4 feet and then it would stop. I would back up, get a run at it, and then it would go another 4 feet and then stop. The mud was so deep! Well, it started to get dark on me anyway, so I stopped for the night. I know those girls will be happy to be able to walk on at least half of a clean coop. I'll finish some more later. Maybe when the ground dries up some.(Yea right)
Right now I'm waiting on Hubby to get back from the neighbors. He has been helping them put on a roof. After he gets back, we are suppose to go down to his Dad's house so that I can teach his step-mom how to start her own blog. She said she was looking for something to do. I suggested she start a blog. As soon as I figure out what she is going to call it, I'll let you guys know.
Speaking of blogs, have you ever looked at all the different blogs. Millions and millions. But, have you noticed how many people don't post on them anymore? In my little town of South Shore, the population is 1200. I just wanted to see how many people had blogs. 26. Now how many people still posted? One,me. Some were kids that was doing an English project,(Great idea!)quit when the project was over. Some people started blogs so that they could post pictures for relatives that were far away,but haven't posted for over a year. It got me to thinking. Why do we blog? Me, I love being able to be in contact with people all over the world.(Hi Granny from Granny's Garden in Australia!) I love the friendships that were made because of blogs. I feel like we are all a little family. When someone is grieving over a lost loved one or a pet that has died, we all grieve. When something funny happens, we all laugh together. If I haven't said this before, you guys are awesome!!!! So tell me, why do you blog?
So until next time,
