Busy As Usual

We had some snowfall here on the Ridge. It all melted, but for a moment I embraced the quiet and sound of fresh snow falling. I vow to not complain as much even when the cold hurts my bones.

I still have so much work to do outside. These beds were mostly cleaned today, but I still have plenty of work to do.

I've been harvesting carrots, cleaning, blanching and packing for stew. Made the first stew dinner with fresh moose last night. It was the best.

Pansies are hardy. The 20* nights haven't taken them out.

Frosty grass in the morning. Heart surround my babies in their new hats sent to them from their Auntie Michele.

Lucas has started basketball. Twice this week. He'll go to two games and a practice per week. Olivia swims twice a week. Emily has high school football cheer everyday after school, two competitive cheer practices per week plus two tumbling sessions. Olivia is also in band and practices her flute. Emily will start soccer soon. Elijah got a job 20 miles away that I drive him to. I spend 3-4 hours a day in the drivers seat.

Today's harvest of red, orange and white carrots.

I've been to several training sessions to be a Girl Scout leader. I've sure got a lot on my plate, but every one of our kids deserves the same opportunities (even if I'm getting older and more tired).

Tomorrow night is a Girl Scout event and all day Saturday I'll be at a Scout Camp (about 70 miles away) with Lucas. Sunday is reserved for getting the last of my out door chores done as Monday calls for rain. I'm tired and looking forward to taking a day off. Not sure when that will be, but it will be spent sleeping!

As always, your busy days wear me out just reading about them.

Hope you get done what you'd like to before winter starts in earnest.

Have a nice weekend ~ FlowerLady

Everyone here was fascinated at the post about Moose meat packing. What a way to go, and your ,is it a commercial grade mincer? that looks a superb piece of kitchen goody to have. Busy girl, but the saying goes " you have one chance to be with your children, then they leave home" You will get a medal one day. Hugs.Jean.p.s. ta for the Facebook link, I'll go there.

I have no idea how you get so much accomplished. I just have a toddler and I can't seem to finish in a week what you do in a day. Have a great weekend.
