Ruffled Feathers and Spilled Milk

Farming with ducks and dairy goats, chickens and children.

Oh, really?

There was football today?  Really?  I didn’t notice at first.

Because I took advantage of the snow day to dig out my owl box.  I’ve been collecting recycling and metal odds and ends for a long time  because I wanted to make some of these owls for the garden.

I spread out all the supplies I’ve been saving and got started.

And by the time I used up all my epoxy I had made a big dent in the box o’ stuff.

This is my favorite, but I can’t wait to start wiring all of them to the garden fence.

I wanted to risk the icy roads for more epoxy but I didn’t want to be one of those people in the roadside ditch.  Just because I wanted epoxy.  For garden ornaments.

I decided to finish another project that was waiting in the craft closet.  I got out my last birdhouse gourd and finished the painting.

But I didn’t have any more clear sealer.  Which really, really, made me want to risk the icy roads for sealer.  And epoxy.

I was thrilled when one of the kids came down and drank the last of the milk.  Becuase we were out of epoxy, sealer, and milk!  We had to go out to the store!  But then he promptly went to the farm fridge and got out another gallon.  Damn.

So I dragged the kids into crafting, too.  I already had everything I needed for this batik t-shirt project.  Big made the symbol for Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

And that’s when I should have figured out the whole football game thing.  Because the boys worked diligently on the project….

….and both of them made batik t-shirts for their favorite football teams.

Of course.  Sunday.  Football.

But the kids didn’t make it to the end of the Panthers game.  After the first half they headed outside to play football in the snow.  They’re running around out there in the dark and will be until much later tonight.  Because there’s still ice on the roads and schools are closed again tomorrow.

Surely the craft stores will be open, right?  Right?
