    The other night was my kind of weather ...

    it was the perfect temperature
    the sky was clear and full of stars
    the crickets were chirping
    the frogs were croaking
    the cicadas were occasionally singing their song too

    We went into the garage to get our tent, maybe set it up to air it out -
    but what I really wanted to do was set up the camping cot in the storage area of our coop & camp with the chickens!
    Their coop seems so cozy! [​IMG]
    If our winter doors were done, I would be tempted.

    How about you?

    I'd love to set up with the chickens but DH says our camping equipment cost too much to have chickens all over it [​IMG]

    A mouse left seed pods from his snack in our tent box (fell out when tipped) so now my DH thinks our tent is ruined [​IMG]
    setting up the tent in the yard today by myself, to let it air out anyway [​IMG]
