More work on the chicken coup
After a leisurely cup of coffee this morning, I got the tools out and began my project for the day which was to put a small roof on the day coup. Sue said they had four feet of snow up here last winter, so I decided to add the sheet of wood to help protect the day coup from the winter snows.
I put the tools away and cleaned things up a bit.
A drive up the river
Parked for a nap
I traveled seven miles up to the bridge and parked in the shade for a nap.
On the way back up the hill I stopped here to check out the water vault where the house water comes from and is pumped up the hill to the house. The water vault is somewhere off to the right over the side of the road and I need to locate a trail to it.
I opened the lid on top and went down in to check things out and as far as I could tell everything looked ok. I made sure the winter heater was off and it was.
Still looking for my lost shirt
Back at the house I was thinking I should give finding my lost shirt I lost on a hike the other day one last shot which meant I had to walk to the barn again to try to locate it.
I decided to try a walk in the same direction I took last time from the barn hoping to stumble onto the shirt where ever I left it. Now if only I could take the same route as before.
After a break at the barn I started trying to follow the same route which meant I needed to look where I checked out a spring by the barn.
Right where I left it
I didn’t expect to find my shirt there as I thought I had it past this spot. But I over did it on the hike that day and was really pooped when I went through this area. At least the elk or coyote’s didn’t get it. :O)
Rap, rap, rap
I was sitting in my van when I heard a load rap on the metal gate in front of the van. I knew what that was as I’d heard it before in this area.
That pretty much raps up my day for another nice one.
