just a little busy...
making sauerkraut which I must say is really good...I know weird huh It is crunchy and perfect on all kinds of things and has all kinds of probiotics that are good for the tummy. Its not the canned mushy stuff from the store.
Old kitchen with the new stove
Empty kitchen....with the new stove
New Kitchen to go with the new stove. I still have to do the baseboards but we've been busy building stalls in the barn now that we have a new shop for Hubby's tools and other things like the millions of canning jars, well not millions but still a lot,and just other stuff.
And more sauerkraut, I'm serious this stuff is so yummy my family doesn't believe me. Herman the sourdough starter is awake again in the jadite bowl covered with a towel after sleeping dehydrated in the freezer since summer time. I made sourdough noodles last week that were pretty good the rest of the family liked them I just tried them and then stuck with rice that was gluten free.
Yes, that is a burn mark on my cutting board, distraction and turned on stove burners don't mix very well.
Besides the putting in a new kitchen and building a shop for hubby I have started a job. Why you ask I have not a clue I don't need the money though it is nice to have play money. And I only work 10 to 12 hours a week Monday afternoon and Friday afternoon. I work at a health food store and they have stacks of books that I read through when I have the time and I love that as well as a discount on things I was buying already.
We started spending time on a shooting range on Saturday mornings for the kids who have joined a 4H shooting sports club. Ashley is learning more about her compound bow and Wyatt is learning more and getting better at shooting his 22. They both are doing great jobs and are having fun learning different techniques etc. A postal match is the beginning of March and that turns into a division match at the end of April depending on how they do they could go to regional, state, national. But that's just details right now it's honing skills and having fun while doing it, the whole competion thing takes the fun out of it I think.
Our winter has been very mild and that means it's hard not to drop all the chores and school and spend the day outside. We have chicks coming in at the end of the month, garden things to plan, Time Out For Women to attend in Memphis for Ashley and I in March, a 20th anniversary trip to Tenn in March, garden plans brewing in our heads, pigs to get ready for, a little horse who thinks he's a big dog to attend to, and many other things occuping our days.
I hope to come back regular on here soon with pictures of the stalls in the barn, pigs, chicks, and the others things we are doing and learning.
