Domino Effect

Now that I have working heat in the garage, I've no excuse to keep putting off setting up my sewing room/studio in there. The giant chest freezer is gone (yay Craigslist!) and so the scrap lumber and tent poles are gradually going in the alcove where that sat.

The biggest domino I have to shift is the pile of military surplus that I was supposed to eBay for a friend. It's just not going to happen for lots of reasons, so now I have to bite the bullet and start weighing it so I can figure what it's going to cost to ship it all to LA: ugh. It will feel good to get that gone, though, so I just need to do it.

Oh, and I need to go photograph my old truck canopy and the old lock box from the back of the big truck so those can go on Craigslist as well. I'm starting Spring Cleaning early, needless to say, and it feels good.

Some of the oak paneling in the garage is going to finish the inside of the henhouse. Why didn't I think of that before? Duh. I have two trim pieces to cut and nail on and the south wall of the henhouse is pretty much ship shape. Well, it will be after I scrape of the "Neighborhood Watch" sticker on the door window, attach the handle and latch, and paint the door spruce green. Right now it's electric blue: bleh.

That's just the house. I still need to finish the actual run, versus the rinky-dink half-size thing they have right now if I don't want to let them into the yard (see photo of annoyed chicken in the snow eating catfood, right). As soon as I get that together I can transplant a couple of climbing roses to the south side of it so they'll have shade in the Summer...and we'll all have more privacy from the neighbors to the north.
