The chickens have all found homes! 4 went to a sweet lady who came to help us butcher. She took them home to can for her husband. 5 belonged to the neighbor next door so I had no claim to them. She also took 5 more which we were happily donating to her church for their soup kitchen in 3 weeks. 2 are being donated to the American Legion for the soup and sandwich meal being served next Saturday, the 21st. I was also asked to donate 2 pies for that night's fundraiser. That leaves me with two that are now simmering on my stove in the basement. The appliance man came to replace the cord and I moved it into the space I had
allocated for it. I can smell the chickens up here by the computer. It is making me hungry and I already had supper LOL!
We went out for supper tonight with Rachel, her in-laws, the grandkids, and our two youngest sons. I skipped the malt and ate a nice taco salad. Even with the salad dressing, I stayed in range. I had plenty of outdoor time today and walked for over 1/2 hour. The breeze was cool and it was cloudy but still in the 50's. The farmers are hauling corn in now as the soybean harvest seems to be complete. One or two more weeks of nice weather and the fields should be done.
Have a wonderful evening and a most marvelous Friday!
