tabitha is fine

yes we are still waiting for rome.

things we have done.

butchered 12 more chickens
lamented over our failing garden
i hooked up the vacuum pump permanantly

got ready for guests
waited for the baby
made some fresh pico de gallo
went to a birthday party
kassi, toly and i got some sort of stomach illness

lamented over the garden and dying tomatoes

moved all TBK chickens into the newer tractors

had tansy and co. visit (that was fantastic)
learned to make her secret recipe soap (also fantastic)
went to the creek tansy took photos

between being sick and having guests i haven't even slopped out boca's pen. good thing animal control has more egregious offenders to worry about. almost a week later and my stomach still doesn't allow serious work for sustained periods. my day job has pretty much taken most of my failing energy.

tabitha is in those unreal final stages of pregnancy where when you look at her you can't believe that her body can do that. she is uncomfortable and ready for this baby. i sadly haven't been the help i should. today is a new day and my backlog of things to be done will consume me if i don't get with it today.

in other news.
i have decided to build a chicken plucker for then next season.
we are going to plant our tomatoes in fresh ground next year.
solar dehydrator still in queue (that one was for you matt)

honorable mention
i had a great time having tansy visit even though i was ill for most of it. the curing soap is making our whole house smell nice. we hope you can come visit again soon. i'll have an outhouse built by next summer (i promise)

big plans
we need a new chicken coop desperately
the milking barn has to get done.

high note
the beans are doing great
