Deer is in the freezer

Cold and rainy which is not my kinda cold.  If it is going to be cold there needs to be snow out there, like five foot of it.  But God has a plan and it was for rain today.  The deer has been processed and froze along with a few meals that the kids ate like candy.  We all love our venison. Topped with gravy and mash potato side and green beans yum yum.  I have some of the deer drying out making another family favorite, venison jerky.  Now that will be gone in no time.  Seems like I can never make enough jerky.  Guess with the next deer we get I should make it all into jerky for those home school field trips hiking through the woods.  I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! Well here's to another day of living off the land and loving it.

Feeling lost without my crockpot

Yes it has been a long time since I ventured into blogland but here I am again.  The spring,summer,and fall have passed and it's cold outside again.  Guess I have been so busy outside this year I had no time to blog.  Well we were blessed with a deer again this year praise God and I have got to get it processed and put into the freezer.  I love sticking deer meat and vegetables in the crockpot in the morning then sitting down to supper already finished while I do all the other chores.  Unfortunetly my crockpot has died yes it can no longer cook those great meals for me.  So here's to having hope for another one soon.  I feel lost without it!  Take care and God Bless!

Money Making Ideas

This question goes out to all the moms at home who are honestly making a decent income from online earnings.  What is the best money making job from home that really works?  Times are tough and I really need to be contributing more to the family income but I don't want to have to leave my home to do so.  Any ideas would be appreciated, as long as they are real and not scams.  Thanks in advance and have a great day out in blog land!

September Days of 2013

It's fall cleaning again so that means yard sale time.  I have started cleaning out and sitting up a big yard sale again.  This summer was a busy one with appointments for everyone here and there.  We enjoyed a small field trip to Spring Mill that was rained out by the next morning ( we were roughing it in tents).  We have 8 new baby puppies that take a lot of attention too.  School has started back and the kids are working hard on their Home school lessons.  We finished all 8 projects for the fair this summer so 4-h is over till next year.  What do they say? Time flies when you are having fun or your so busy you don't know which way to turn.  Here's to a great September from our house to yours!

June Updates

What a month this has been and I don't care to ever go through one like this again.  We must for sure be living in the end times because I sometimes feel like we are going through hell here on earth.  I am so thankful that God has pulled us through incident after incident this month.  Now if I could just get enough energy to do all the things that need to be done I would be doing okay.  Here's to a better rest of the year, it just has to be!
