New Year Challenge #2

New Year Challenge #2
I also made this last week. I`d been meaning to (= intending to) make it for a long time - since I first got my pet chickens last spring (that`s a hint!). It didn`t take long* to make - only about 30 minutes, but I hope it lasts [保つ] a long time. What do you think it is?

Grammar
- * 'long' = 'a long time`: 'a long time' is used in positive sentences; 'long' is used in questions or negative sentences, not positive sentences.

UPDATE: The answer is in comments!

New Year Challenge #1

New Year Challenge #1
Over* the new year holidays I made this. What is it? Can you guess? I`ll give you a hint: I put it outside in the garden; the string with bricks (レンガ) over** the top is to keep the roof on in windy weather. Now it`s empty, but when winter is over***, I hope it will be used by... something. Okay, hint time is over***!

Over**** to you - what do you think it is? Please leave your idea in comments!

Vocabulary:
The word 'over' has various meanings, e.g.
* during, throughout ** on, covering *** finished **** change, switch

I`m sad to report that Teragoya founder, owner & manager, Akemi Doyle, passed away last week from cancer.

Thanks to her, I joined Teragoya 11 years ago, and thanks to her, I stayed. Actually, I have lots of things to thank her for - too many to list here. She was a good boss & a good person.

From Teragoya Otto to Teragoya Akemi, thank you & rest in peace.
