Thanks to some friends on an acreage, we were able to experience butchering chickens. From catching and beheading, to scalding and de-feathering, to cutting and gutting, and finally packaging - We had a productive AND fun night with family and friends!
My oldest son gave new meaning to the chicken dance!
And I have made my first batch of 'Real' Chicken stock!
Due to a nursing a baby, I tried to 'chicken out' of the beheading, but my husband would not allow such cowardliness.
Thank you dear man, for once again, encouraging me to step into the unknown...
Leading me in the dance we call life-
I love you!

What do you do on a rainy day? I would say my boys are enjoying the peaceful steady raindrops outside.
I am enjoying the raindrops from the peace inside. This photo was taken from the view from my house, and its a much better sight than our yard. I do like the upkeep of our wonderful neighbors, but I also wish I could return the favor of a view from their house. Inside and out, I'm wondering where to start. So yes, a blog post...to rev up the motivation within. Then to my kitchen.
As I work on perseverance, this is how I feel:
Trying to stay focused, keeping my eyes on the present journey, and hoping our Father is there giving me the strength needed for the task at hand, and smiling...
