Well, things have been pretty busy around here lately. I have been canning turkey. It is amazing how you can preserve food and not have to refrigerate or freeze things. I did about 47 pounds which is plenty for my husband and I. I am thankful for the privilege of being able to do things like this.
I planted garlic which is doing well. Can’t wait to try some fresh out of the garden. It will be ready by the spring. I am finding as the chickens are getting older that some are not chickens but roosters! I have 2 so far. I get an egg every other day as most are not quite mature yet. I have been allowing my pup Esther to go in with me so she will get used to them and them her. But all she wants to do is eat their droppings. YUCK. I have a chicken poop eating dog! Maybe she lacks something in her diet or she just likes the taste. I hope she out grows this. Esther has become a wonderful companion. She helps carry things for me and has become a part of our family. I would like to find more ways of training her to be a work dog. She is a blessing.
My husband and I have started working on building a porch. We have cut 9 oak logs so far and will be doing more. It is exciting to be able to use what the Lord has provided on our land to build with. I will post some pics soon so you can see the progress. Things continue to move along. We will be enjoying , Lord willing aThanksgiving dinner on Thursday which should be great. We will have a few visitors joining us. For all those on the American side have a blessed thanksgiving.
The Lord continues to show me His grace and mercy. I am learning indeed to be content in all things. ( there will be a test I am sure) I am thankful for the wisdom that is imparted from those who teach and guide me. This has been and continues to be an incredible journey in which separation continues and His grace abounds.
