These chickens live next door ro where I work. They seem to live our bugs more then theydo in their own yard. We are not complainingit as they are nice to see.

A few times their duck friends would come along too.

Kairo the Amazing

This morning with my cats, Kairo and Greyson, it was another uneventful morning as usual. I feed them, cleaned the litterbox, and proceed to get ready for work.

As I am getting my clothes ready I hear this noise and when I look up this is what I see….

I think I just figured out what to add to my project list for the winter months….some sort of ledge so the cats cat get up really high.

My family will really start to call me the “Cat Lady” then.

Fungus Friday 2

I am unsure what to title these mushrooms. Do you have a suggestion?

Fungus Friday 1 – Orange Cluster

Photographing mushrooms seems to be a thing for me so I decided that on Fridays during the summer I will post mushrooms. So here is the first post in the category.

At my day job there is a lot of mushrooms and most of them are orange. Click here to see some tiny mushrooms from last week.

A Little Bashful

Finally saw a Woodpecker but he/she is a little shy.

After he left this tree he flew to a swing and started to do some acrobatics.

A Little DIY Project

On Pinterest I saw a lot of DIY birdbath ideas that looked fairly simple to make. So this evening I decided to make one.

My goal was to take photos of each step but once you are in a flow you sometimes forget to pause to take a pic of the progress.

What I used:

  • 4 plastic flower pots
  • PVC pipe about 2 1/2 feet (left from a past project).
  • Metal serving tray
  • Spray paint (left from a past project)
  • Gorilla glue
  • Gravel & a few stone for a fish tank

I think if you bought all the items you would spend approximately $20.00/$25.00. The gravel and stone choices will vary the price a bit.

I spent a total of $11.00 for this project. Most of the stuff I already had left over from other projects.

I drilled a 1 inch hole in the bottom of the pots then I painted them.

While I waited for them to dry I put the PVC in the ground about 6 inches.

Now that the pots have dried I put them over the PVC and glued them together.

Once I was satisfied with that, I put the serving tray on top and glued to the top of the flower pot.

Now it is time to add the gravel, stone, and water.

Tomorrow I will add some touchup paint to cover where the glue dripped and take a picture from the top so you can see the gravel and stone I used.

I will be putting mulch and edging around it to make it stand out a bit more.

Next Project

Since June 15th I have been working on another project, a deck with a trellis on top.

I completed the deck over the first weekend but was trying to find someone, at a reasonable price, to dig the holes and put in the post.  the average price that I received was $250.00.  I was not gonna pay that for 8 post (also need 4 for a fence).

So after trying to get my nephews to help out I decided to try and tackle it myself.  I DID IT.  It was not as hard as I thought it would be.

Due to cost of the wood I am not able to put up the trellis at this time.  Instead I ordered a shade sail from Amazon that was suppose to be delivered today.

In all the years that I have ordered from Amazon this is the first time that I did not get my order by their stated date.  I will post a picture once the shade sail finally gets here.

Thought for today:  Conquer what intimidates you.
