This has been one of those weeks where I COULDN’T be more happy that Friday has finally arrived. I wish I could say that I was going to sleep in one day this weekend, however, I cannot. In the winter, when the temperatures start to dip close to or below freezing at night, we shut and lock the door to the chicken coop to keep out the freezing drafts. So, it means that I have to wake up at dawn to let the chickens out or else I feel super guilty that they’re locked inside.
Like clockwork, chickens put themselves to bed when the sun goes down and wake up with the sun. So during the winter, they are inside the coop for a lot of the day and I hate to lock them in there any longer than they want to be. All of that to say, I won’t be sleeping in at all until the days start to get longer again. In a way I like it because it gets me up and going for the day. But, every once in a while, it’s nice to sleep in. On those days, I just run outside in my PJs to open the coop and let the dogs out but then promptly get back into my warm, cozy bed.
Total side note: all 5 of our chickens sleep on the top roost all snuggled together during winter and it’s the cutest thing ever. But when it’s not cold, they make poor Fiona (the biggest but the youngest chicken) sleep on the bottom roost. Mean girls.
As promised, I’m here today with the super simple and super yummy Vegan Frosting recipe that was featured in the sugar cookies recipe from Wednesday. This recipe is admittedly nothing revolutionary. It’s essentially regular frosting made with vegan butter. But it’s delicious and creamy and the perfect amount to LIGHTLY frost a big batch of cookies. [Read More…]
