Anyways, DH was home this weekend and he cheered me up a bunch by building a hay feeder for my goats! The poor things had been having to make do with the trough in their shed, which wasn't hay friendly. But now they've got their own honest-to-goodness hay friendly feeder! Want to know how he made it? Well, I'll share what I know.
1. Start out in the middle of a downpour that has been going on for 24 hours. Assemble everything you will need in a covered area (in his case the garage/workshop.)
2. Find a DS who has a project that requires a space where he can get dirty (he was rebuilding his bicycle) and invite him over to share the time with you in said garage/workshop.

4. Mumble things like "darn woman should have married a carpenter" and "would of been done hours ago if they were made out of metal" when DW sneaks down to get an "in-progress" picture. (At this point I backed quietly out of his "space" and headed back to my cozy kitchen.)

6. Be late to work the next morning because you waited til daybreak to help DW put the first hay in the new feeder (and watch the goats go nuts over it!)
