Wow, I know I say this every week, but really...it's Friday already? We've had another busy week here, shocking I know! :) Canning, school here at home, the beginning of classes at the school and co-op and more canning. :) In the midst of it all, we've had a good time, despite the threat of a cold or two. Our pantry is getting fuller by the day and we are finally seeing the end of the canning season in the distance.
So, what am I thankful for this week?
*My hubby is still working, as is his brother...YAY!
*The kids first week of the full school schedule went well and everyone enjoyed their outside classes!
*The fall color is everywhere, overnight it seems, and it looks like it will be a BEAUTIFUL fall around here.
*A friends daughter that had open heart surgery is doing fairly well...please be praying for little Lily.
*Our new layers should be laying any day...SO excited!
*Made 17 pints of tomato soup yesterday...might make more, but it's a good start...my kids will be thrilled this winter! :)
*My pantry is filling up by the day...I LOVE that feeling!
*We pick up this year's steer this weekend....he'll live at a friends house until he's ready to butcher...we'll have beef in the freezer again in about a month and a half!! We're starting out with an older guy this time...not really by choice....but that means we'll have the meat a bit earlier. Good timing!
*Hunting season starts in a few weeks...my boys are excited and so am I...praying for a good harvest this year with the three of them hunting. :)
It's been a crazy busy week, and today will be no different. Canning more tomatoes today, perhaps a batch of plum preserves and working on school, laundry and baby sitting too. Pray for me in the midst of it all...I'm feeling a cold coming on. I need my strength to get through the last of my canning. :)
