Snowy Sunday Sunrise
Just Before Dark

I Do This To Myself

There was a bit of a disaster at the chicken coop yesterday because of the 8" of snow we had overnight. It brought down the protective netting over their small yard and tangled it up in the trees. Smith and I spent the morning tying the netting together, retying it to the fencing, and trussing it all up with rope. Oh, and that was after shaking the snow off and getting ourselves completely wet with snow.  After saving the net we fed, watered and petted every chicken, just to reassure them. Sadly (or not) I did not have the camera at the ready. The whole thing was very cold, wet and stressful!

The rest of the weekend was spent reorganizing the coat closet (couldn't find the gloves I needed!) and working on my fiber room.

It's looking very nice, if I say so myself.  This is half the room, the other half isn't quite ready for viewing, but this is as I envisioned. The closets in the room are finished and I think I'm about 90% (well, maybe 85%) finished. I have a place to spin (but must wait until the room is 100% complete), a place to sit, and a place for all my fiber and yarn.

Hopefully, over Thanksgiving weekend I can finish the room to the point the reorganizing bug, the crazy reorganizing bug, can be ignored!  I'm exhausted.


That looks fabulous! I love all the bookshelves. My fiber room still houses a crib and bed for granddaughter and daughter #2.

So will the chickens be safe when more snow comes because that's a rather small dose compared to later in the season isn't it? Do modifications need to be made so things will be more sturdy? Poor things, hope they are quite recovered now.

Fiber room looks fab! Very relaxing and organized.

That's how it looked when I last visited, I think. Fantastic, Margene!

I can only aspire to a room like that. It's lovely.

It's looking wonderful! Good for you! Poor chickens-glad they are okay. Must have been horrifying to see the netting down.

It looks good! Hard work, though. Glad Millie and girls are alright.

Your room looks great! Very inviting and organized. Did the chickens get upset with all that was going on?

I hope that one day, when I grow up, I will have a room like that. It looks great! Good luck with your chickens in the winter weather. Ours hate snow and stay indoors whenever there is a layer.

It's terrific! And yes, I understand completely the "can't spin till it's finished" (or knit, in my case) because otherwise, I'd get sidetracked and slip back into my slothful ways....
I love how light the room is!

Your room look magnificent! And you are the hero of Millie and her friends. What a productive weekend!

Poor chickey-grrls, how lucky are they to have you and Smith to rescue them.

Room's lookin' good, clean and bright and orderly and full of possibilities!

It's good you were there and able to help the chickens! Your room is looking great... looking forward to getting into mine (someday soon)!

Once you get that room all fixed up, we should have a knitting afternoon in it!

Wow! It's fabulous! I love the swift on the arm of the futon. What a lot of good work. Congrats!

Love your fiber room. What a great place to spin. Hope your ordeal with the chickens and snow won't happen again. I'm sure that was stressful for sure.

Wow! Fabulous job on the room!

You're doing a wonderful job!

When you are done with the reorganizing bug could you send it my way? I seriously need some motivation!

I had said your room looked as messy as mine, but not anymore! Looks great--and might motivate me to do something about my mess. Thanks, Margene!

You want to do my place next after you finish the rest of that room?! ;)

That looks wonderful! And familiar! Sending you hugs across the interwebs.

It looks terrific! Please send that crazy reorganizing bug to my house - I want a studio that looks so nice and inviting. :)

When you are done how about you come help me tackle my fiber room?!? ;-)

What a nice fiber room that is! I have a nice one too, but its been sadly neglected.

You had a heck of a day with the dear chickens!

Your room is looking fantastic.
