Bill, I agree with your Auntie Dot...winter is a more restfull time, still work to do, but not as much. This is the most busiest time of the year. Spent mostly on harvesting the crop and making sure we have enough wood.
Bonnie, I certainly agree on the horrible internet connections....I get kicked off all the time and what ever I'm working on gets lost! And then I have to start over again....I have spent at least an hour trying to post this....hahahah! AHGGGGGGG! (my rendition of a swear word!)
Possom...welcome...I can agree on the two really tired people! hahahah! I'm anxious to see some more posts from you about your lifestyle...I'm sure you have lots to tell...especially with a goat herd! hahahah!
Satantroll, I remember to bring your dogs some steak, if I'm ever around your place...hahahaha!
Well, the temperature has dropped and it won't be long before snow flys....we could get a dusting by Halloween....we sure are not looking forward to the cold. We have been using our Electric Eden Heater, in the evenings and the mornings to shake the cold. We try to put off burning wood in the wood burner until we absolutely have to....I see the neighbors have fired up their woodburner though...so we won't be far behind....
I've been very busy...besides working full time and doing the chores here at home, I have been sitting with one of my sister in laws mother whom is 92 years old and can't stay by herself...that's takes up time...plus I have designed a cape/blanket and have quite of few orders for them...I'll have to post a pic on the sewing site....they are quite cool, if I have to say so myself! hahahaha!
My husband and I saw a bobcat the other night....one more critter that likes to eat chickens for dinner....its no wonder that Chickens lay at least an egg a day during laying season....they get wiped out so easily!
My sister, sister in law, mother and myself put up 40 quarts of homemade vegetable soup. We use all the end of the garden vegetables, plus the leftover ones that we froze through out the summer...We add a few spices and a few handfulls of barley and there ye be....vegetable soup for a cold winters day.
If you stare at the video long enough, you just might be able to smell the soup.
See Drangs post below this one (thank you Drang)
I'm not to good at uploading these videos, I am hopelessly challanged when trying to do this...
Here's a few more pics, one of my sister stirring the pot and a pic of jars being prepared for canning. We worked for a long time and we all were very very tired when we finished! But it was well worth the work.
ok, so my screams of "I hate you! You suck! you horrible internet!" etc. have now brought my husband to the bedroom where I am typing. That means that I have let this stupid connection frustrate me enough....I have company coming in at midnight, so I had better sign off before I kick this computer to kingdom come! hahahaha!
