Well, another hunting season has come and gone without my even seeing anything that I could shoot at, let alone shoot at something. It seems that it has been a fairly poor season for everyone concerned...except the deer. Our neighbors were complaining that they didn't get anything, and my dad only got one doe during the senior season in October. Oh well, as long as I don't hit any deer with my car this winter, I'll be ok.
JP and I took advantage of a hunting-free day today, and hauled more wood to store under the barn lean-to near the wood burner. We also cleaned out the hen house, since the hens have been treated twice with wormer and have about 4 more days until we can keep their eggs again.
In the meantime, I have collected 5 feed buckets of eggs in the garage.
JP, the girls, and I took them down by the creek and threw them across into the field. We didn't want to dispose of them anywhere near the house or the chickens. The girls and I took advantage of a tree and practiced our aim. It looked pretty gross by the end of our session!
We finally got our trees decorated. Our main one is in the family room downstairs, and the girls have a small one in their room. It looks so festive!
Next weekend, I am hoping to finish up Christmas shopping and bake our Christmas cookies. I only have 11 days until my Holiday Surgery, so I need to have things done ahead of time.
This week is L's Christmas Chorus Concert, and J's is next week. There will also be one or two Basketball practices and some voice/guitar lessons thrown in as well.
I hope that all of your Holiday preparations are going smoothly!
