Canning Chicken Stock, Smart Cat and More

WORDS TO LIVE BY


Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. 
Hebrews 4:16

TODAY'S QUOTE

Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He's going to be up all night anyway. ~ Mary C. Crowley


ANIMAL UPDATES

Look at Amanda's smart cat (named Puppy) helping me make the weekly menu and grocery list. I had to say to his suggestions of fried mouse and roast rat though. I just don't think the people in this house would enjoy that.


YARD AND GARDEN

The garden is still doing wonderful. However the rain is keeping us from getting into it and doing what we need to do. The weeds are getting away from us and the beans need to be picked. I did some greens and Austin helped me with turnips and with pulling some of the weeds. 


WORKING, LEARNING, AND PLAYING TOGETHER

This swingset is swingless at the moment so the kids use it as monkey bars instead. Michael sometimes struggles to keep up with the others but he is determined to learn and keeps trying. He's even had blisters on his hands from trying so hard and has made a lot of progress. 




IN THE KITCHEN

I canned one quart and five pints of chicken stock this evening. I made this from the scraps of some chicken leg quarters I had cooked and taken the meat off of for a casserole. I use this to make soups, stews, gravy and homemade cream of chicken soup


OUT AND ABOUT

Our errand day run was short today. The kids didn't have very many stops they wanted to make and Michael found what he wanted at Goodwill pretty quickly. It was nice for a change.
