Week in Review, Part 4

Last Monday, all of my children were enjoying a freeze pop on the deck when the sky opened up.  They loved the rain shower!

Towards the end of the week, all four of them went to visit my parents for a few days.  While the children are away, mommy will play! 🙂

I made this starburst hot pad.  You can find the pattern here.

I finally finished this necklace.  It’s been on my to do list for a long time and I only needed to tie it off and secure the knot.  I don’t know what took me so long!  I wore it wrapped around my wrist on a much needed date night with my husband.  The necklace is based on this pattern.

I also cleaned out the chicken coop and added some flowers and mulch along the sides.

I shoveled out all of the shavings from the coop and the run and added new sand to both areas.

While I was working the girls decided to take a dust bath under the lilac bush behind the coop.

It’s hard to see in the photos, but they are throwing dirt up under their wings.  It’s a lot of fun to watch!

Saturday evening the older two asked if we could have a camp fire.  We said, “Yes!”, but told them that they needed to make the fire pit bigger.  They spent at least an hour working on it.  They did a great job!
