Last weekend Hannah and I spent both days at Wild at Heart. Hannah was originally there to help out with the yard sale but instead spent her time outside making the enclosures winter ready by nailing planks of wood to the outside of the cages. She also managed to pick up a few items very cheap; we got me a pair of ice skates for a mere $5. We also got a dressing table mirror and a lamp. I helped Brian and Ivan with the cages. Brian and I roofed two of the cages in two days, we put 1/2″ think sterling board flooring in 8′ x 4′ sheets on, then put the shingles onto that. Getting the shingles on straight and aligned is challenge. We also got some of the mesh up inside of one of the cage’s ceiling, using a compressed air stapler, which was capable of firing the staple so hard that it would slice the wire in half and not fix the mesh at all.
The weather has been cooling down this week, its been below zero over night. But its been dry and sunny most days. We are looking forward to the snow and ice, I want to try out my skates!
Last night we went for a walk down by Science North. There was a lovely lilac sky which made for some pretty pictures.
