Start day 530 am
lots of coffee, and it's raining!
Boys waiting on the bus (no Small is not picking his nose or giving you the finger)
as you can see he is doing better
I said MINE!
Outside chores no photos, I was very wet (feeding cows, chickens, rabbit and pig mainly)
Clean up the 6am mess from Medium making Christmas cards
Let puppies go out
Pack a box to ship to one of my lucky readers
Go through boys clothes and shoes for donation (3 boxes)
String the ornaments that were too heavy for my little tree
Put out some decorations that the boys have made
Large piece of tree branch, paint, squiggle eyes, an old sock and Ribbon for bow tie
Wasn't very hungry for lunch, so a few pieces of Deer Sausage
Time to obsess over several handmade gifts
Like the pants? I think plaid thins out my legs ~ inset hysterical laughter here~
Somewhere in all this making, my little brother's friend shows up with a trailer full of fire wood for us. We unload it from the road and chuck it over the fence. Ground was too wet to drive a truck over.
What could they be?
Warm enough not to have a fire, cleaning time!
Then Husband comes homes and decides we need to move the wood burner. ugh.
Time to make dinner
re-fried beans, before and after
Please refrain from commenting on what the after looks like because it was tasty.
All ingredients, with the exception of the tortilla, which I purchase from a local woman, was grown or raised on the homestead.
Little Brother's friend shows up again to hang out. I put the boys to bed and watch a horror movie with his wife. They leave around 11 pm, and I pass out on the couch.
