30 days of Thanksgiving - Day 7

As this long day is finally coming slowly to an end. I'm so very thankful for being about done with doing chicken for the year, 27 qts chicken canned, 28 qts chicken noodle soup canned, and 40 pounds of fryers in the freezer...

I'm also thankful for living in the country and being able to see the stars every night. At least when it's not cloudy. The thought of living in a city with so many lights that you aren't able to see the starts is just something which is hard for me to imagine (and believe me... I have a good imagination!).

And I'm also very thankful that we are done with Fall calving... I can a a brief rest before Winter/Spring calves are hitting the ground...


  1. Oh my gosh, you certainly did a lot of canning! I'm thankful that you brought to mind days spent with my mother in the basement of the family home helping her can beets and tomatoes and pickles and relish and plums. Thanks so much for the wonderful memory brought back to mind.
