Busy Monday Morning,

After a rather productive, though terribly muddy, weekend I'm having a nice productive Monday! On Sunday The Man and I decided to brave the disgusting mud and clean out the rabbit barn and the chicken house. The Man actually got started on this little project, as I was telling him he was nuts and shouldn't we just wait 'til the ground froze again?! However, he's like a pitbull once he sets his mind to something and insisted that he was going to do it. I stayed inside to cook the deli style roast beef that I'd had marinating in the fridge since Saturday. This is my second time of making this roast and it's DELICIOUS for sandwiches! No more buying roast beef for us!

After I got done baking the roast and settin' it aside to cool I put on my mudboggers and headed out. I wish I'd gotten pictures, but I didn't want to risk getting my camera all slogged up! Nuff to say that it was all The Man could do to push the wheelbarrow through the sticky, gluey mud. We did get both barns cleaned out and the poop slung on the two garden spots. The upper garden is new ground, we just opened it up last year, so it needs all the yummy stuff on it that it can get. The lower garden is much more established and didn't take as much. We didn't get any poop put on either garden last year because the rain just didn't allow. I think that's why hubs decided to just do it this time and to heck with the mud. The poop will sit out there on the garden now until we get a dry enough spell to till it under. Nothing grows better veggies than a nice mix of chicken, rabbit, horse, and goat poop! We also butchered 5 more rabbits on Sunday morning. I've got one in the pressure cooker now for barbecue bunny for The Youngun. The other 4 will go in the freezer for later use.

This morning I got a bit of housework done, stripped our bed and got it remade, dusted, vacuumed and cleaned the ceiling fan in our room. Got the rabbit cooking, I'm going to make whole wheat pita breads, almost apple turnovers and I hope to get some work done on my quilt. I'm within about 4 hours of having it done and I really really want to get finished with it this week. I've been saying that for about 2 months now!

Anyway, I've really got nothin' exciting to report! Hope you are staying warm and dry and aren't drowning in mud!

Till next time.............GOD BLESS FROM GOODWIFE FARM!


  1. You are in high gear this morning! I hear ya about the mud. We are water logged right now ourselves. The most productive thing I've done today is go to the feed mill. I feel like a bum after reading about your morning!

  2. LOL! You are a silly silly woman! I thought about mopping the paw prints off the floor, then I thought......why bother!
