Wow, What a week

Well, I haven't blogged in a couple, and it has been eventful!!
So, lets go back a few days....
Monday, finally make the noodles, for that YUMMY Rooster Noodle Soup... MMMM, wheat noodles, homemade with our own eggs! (BTW, I don't use the white bleached flour - EVER) I usually use Hogdson Mill or Pauls (love it, but I usually don't pay attention enough to have extra on hand).

Tuesday, stayed mostly at home, some running errands to see how much postage for our fabulous Beef Expo Sale Catalogs. A BUCK a piece, for 12 pages, cause the president (hubby) won't let me fold em in half. Oh well, they look pretty good! Lacy did a great job!!

Wednesday, now that one was FUN!! I had a ME day. I went and had an eye exam, so I could get new contacts. You see when you are pregnant, and after your eyes might change, and mine REALLY DO. So, no more glasses. They are quite the pain in the cold steamy weather, with fogging and such. Then, I (GASP) got my nails done. I havent done this for at least 4 years, and back in my queenie days, I was never without acryllic nails. I had gel nails put on (for strength), and yes, I know I am very oxymoronic with all my green things and FAKE nails. But, every once in a while its ok, right??
THEN..... Are you ready for it??


Yup, In total I cut off about 15 inches. No, not a typo. My hair was down to my pants, braided. I have had long hair since about 5th grade. The shortest it has ever been, was just below my shoulders. So, I have an updated bob. That is, its a little longer in the front and shorter in the back. I can feel AIR on my neck. How wierd is that?? REALLY wierd if you never ever remember feeling it before.

Today, I hauled my baby pigs, and picked up my GROUND BEEF. She made over 500 pounds, and it is all fresh, not frozen. MMMMM, I've been browning some to freeze as taco meat, and going to make a bunch of thick hamburger patties later to freeze. If you're local and want some great beef, let me know.

And, I haven't forgotten, but I haven't figured out what to do with some WONDERFUL Lemonade I recieved, and I need to share.


  1. Don't you just love those days? I bet you feel like a new woman... and look like one too with the cute haircut.

    So your sister is an ag teacher too? I am sure she has all kinds of great stories... Tell her I said hello and if she ever wants to exchange info, please email me.

  3. I agree with tattooedmama. How about a before and after post!
