Follow-Up Friday

This week:

-- I worked at a cattle show on Saturday, taking entries and doing the record-keeping. It was a sunny but cold day and I was so cold inside the unheated arena. A friend loaned me a fuzzy red blanket.

-- We brought home the packages of beef from the butcher. The freezer is bulging; hubby actually taped the door shut so we won't worry about it popping open. I'll pressure-can some of it. The butcher also gave me 3 bags of beef tallow and said if I'll bring him an occasional bar of my soap he'll make sure I don't run out of tallow. I have enough goat milk in the freezer to keep me going for awhile...

-- We celebrated my birthday with a nice lunch over the weekend.

-- Then on Monday night, our middle daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter unexpectedly showed up on our doorstep! Our son had picked them up at the airport and brought them over to surprise us, and we were REALLY surprised! They are staying until Saturday morning. (While she was here, I gave her her charm bracelet.)

-- Our son-in-law helped hubby take down two sides of the old sheep pen one day. The old wire was disposed of, the t-posts went onto our pile of fencing supplies. This was Step #1 in preparing the hayfield for winter grazing by the horses.



  1. Lovely Kathi. :) I would love to try some really fresh beef again soon. Right now we are enjoying, by the Lord's Grace, some venison still in the freezer, from some friends, but it is still going down fast!

    Happy belated birthday!
    In His Love, Carra

  2. Hey Kathi! :)

    Sounds like you had a very nice and busy week.

    We have been pretty busy here too. And some rather upsetting turn-ups in the chicken pen by predators. :( Makes a week very busy!

    Happy Birthday, by the way! :)

    Praying for you very much.

    In Him;

  3. Thank you both for your birthday wishes and for your prayers. I'm sorry to hear about your predator problems. I hope you both are feeling better now.
