I took yesterday off work. Hmmmm could have been snuggled in a comfy chair reading a book and sipping hot tea... could have been shopping with friends or spending time with my huggable/kissable grandson... but instead of all those things on one of my precious vacation days I am tromping through mud and guts getting chicken ready to put in the freezer. I am not bitter. I am not even unhappy about this... what kind of person have I become that I would probably rather do this than any of the above things except of course snuggling with that huggable baby boy. Well, for one thing we put 214 1/2 lbs of meat into the freezer yesterday. We haven't even started butchering the 20+/- ducks that still need to be done. It makes my heart glad to get that job done. We're about 1/2 way through harvesting/butchering season so I will probably have one more muddy/gutty day to go.
Pictures to come.
God is good!
