The long sleep

I slept the day away Sunday. Not much got done, at least not by me. My husband finished replacing the underground fence he accidently dug up. Today have to start training the puppy to it, or we will have to get rid of her. She has killed 3 chickens. she's not getting into the pen, the chickens are getting out. We found out where {wow chickens are a lot like cats, squeeze through just about anything} and fixed it.

Today I have to do some canning {french onion soup, more green bean and corn, and butternut squash soup, and anything else I find in the garden today that needs to be canned} I also need to bake some carrot muffins and zucchini bread. And we are getting low on Wheat bread. My house is going to be very hot today.

Thank you to everyone that stopped by and helped me stay awake during the blogathon. Thank you to the people that were instant messaging me, and not getting mad when I got a little snappy by the end of it. Without you I might not have made it through the night.

I do plan on doing the Blogathon next year. It's nice to be able to make somewhat of a difference in peoples lives.

I learned some things as well. I had no idea that the definition of homesteading in Europe describes The United States HUD {Housing and Urban Development} program, rather than the back to land movement.

I also discovered that I have more friends than I thought. They kept me very busy with all of their wonderful questions and debates. And I meet some new, and wonderful people. Thank you Lynn S. For your comments on spinning. My Chainmaille is my down time, but maybe I will look into spinning after all.

And thanks to Polli, Marina found the Little House book she has been looking for.

AND THE WINNERS ARE!

Congrats to Polli, who won my first contest and will be getting some home grown {legal} herbs.

Congrats to One4worldpeace who won the second game and will be getting a handmade scarf from Greedyreader.

I was worried about Ya-ya when you mentioned she had killed your hen. Dogs are very hard to break of that habit...but it sounds as if you are on the right track. (Keeping the chickens and the dog from crossing paths.)

So do you want me to see if I can swing up to Laura's Missouri place and get a copy of that book for you too?
