The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

We have very cold weather and snow right now; which is bad.  I hate cold weather.

But the chickens hate the snow (though they are fine with freezing temps) and won't step outside on to the white stuff.  Which is good.  See that open gate on the left?  That's pure freedom to roam the neighborhood but they won't cross the snow. I don't have to chase down any escaped chickens.

Which is really good cause I'd rather the neighbors not see me sporting these beauties (the ugly):

Its good that I have them because I've been making lots of trips out to the coop... because the water keeps freezing, which is bad:

But my husband, who is good and totally not ugly, went and bought a heated pet bowl and saved the day(s)!  Though the chickens still peck at the ice block before realizing its ice and then go over to the water.  Chickens aren't the smartest.

Its a good thing I dug that 55 FOOT LONG TRENCH from the house to the coop. With my bare hands. And a pick axe, so we could have an electrical outlet there. That's all a bad memory now.

So we're staying inside a lot which is good because I'm catching up on some projects like this wine night light (for grown ups, not my kids):
(pretty, huh? you want a tutorial on this one? I'm really good at tutorials - hahaha)

However, now my dining room table looks like this:

Which is bad because I have company coming over; but its a good thing its just family.

However crafting sometimes results in the ugly:
(taken with my cell phone cause that's my right hand ya'll!  I can't even hardly lift my camera with my left hand.)

And it was really stuck.  I tried soaking it, which ruined the picture inside.  Then decided to go outside in the cold to make my fingers shrink (cold does that right?).  Going out in freezing temps with a recently soaked, wet hand stuck in a glass bottle is not a good idea.  You're welcome. Because I learned that lesson for you.

I knew this was a sit on the couch day the minute I sent my kid off to school without his backpack. Or lunch.
