2nd day

I spent the second day of the new year cleaning house.  We got a little dusting of snow today. Tomorrow night we are supposed to get a whole bag of different things.  Starting with snow, then freezing rain and sleet, finally it is supposed to warm up into the 50's and get rain for the remainder of Sunday.  We are supposed to only have one day of 50 then plummet down to the low 20's and stay that way for a while. 

This weekend is the gun show, so, we might head up there and see what they have.  Tomorrow is the day to make more bread.  I will then try to get up in the barn to do more work on a blanket, that I am getting ready to weave for my dad.  I am going to spend a lot more time up in the barn this winter.  I am planning to do some craft shows this year. That is if I can get enough stuff woven a head, that I won't have to worry about running out of inventory, while doing a show.  

We lost a calf today.  We decided to wait until spring now to get another one.  We will be behind in having beef ready for the freezer now.   I am glad that the hubby brought home some venison this year to put in the freezer.  Hopefully that and the turkey that we have and some pork will be enough until we can put more beef in the freezer.

The hubby spent the last couple of days sawing wood and putting the wood together to make barn doors for a friend.  That friend is the one that is supplying him with his new hobby (hit and miss engines).   Here we believe in the barter system.  

Well, that pretty much explains what is going on at the farm for now.

Hope you have a great weekend.

You are ambitious and getting lots done. Too bad about the calf...meat is so expensive now. :(

Wow sounds like a good plan to keep busy during the winter.
Too bad about the calf :( We never kept any calves so we end up buying one ready to butcher from the neighbor.
