One of our chickens, stuffed and roasted, mashed potatoes, buttery corn, salad with homemade ranch dressing, rolls with rosemary and sea salt. The chicken was fork tender and amazing!
Pineapple cream pie with double meringue. Super yummy!
Wished you were here to enjoy it too.
Isn’t he beautiful! We found him last spring by the kitchen steps when we were cleaning the yard. Ran across his picture just now. Steve relocated him away from the house.
I have given Kathryn the assignment of taking some new, exciting pictures for me. We’ll see what she comes up with. Hope everyone is having a great day!
Here is a picture I found from this past summer of Travis flying through the air at camp! Pretty wild. I didn’t know he would do that!!
Travis has started sparring in Tae Kwon Do. It is really cool (and kind of scary from a mom’s point of view) and he loves it! Will try to remember my camera next week and get some pictures of him in action!!
All week long, there have been male cardinals trying to come through the windows! We have several clear windows with no screens. I will hear thumping noises and when I look at the window, there is a beautiful male cardinal trying to get in. This has been happening on and off for about a week. Very weird! If I can manage to get a picture of one, I will add it.
Thanks to Nick and Kathryn who cleaned all the disgusting wood shavings and chicken poop out of the garage!!! We almost have the garage back. Still lots of dust and feathers but at least the stink is gone. Yeah!
The goat show was today. Erin’s goat, Carl, placed 9th out of 21 in his class. Jordyn’s goat, Rowdy, placed 8th in his class of 20 or 21. Congrats girls!! Pictures to follow…
The broilers go to the processor today (if we can figure out how to get them there) and then to the freezer. Yeah! Having 45 giant chickens in the garage gets old fast.
Here are some pictures of the Barbado sheep…
Rambo and one of his harem (looks like Pearl):
