Another week in review because it seems I'm unable to get anything posted these days and we're closing in on 2 weeks. The guineas are enjoying their freedom although I haven't released them to free range yet - me thinks they are still too small
I haven't been doing any sewing as my sewing machine has been in for cleaning and tension repair for the last 3 weeks. I'll fuss about that in a future post. 😉 However, I have been cutting for the next quilt:
I did have those 2 quilt books I mentioned earlier, bound at Office Max - $4 and change per book and now they are so more user friendly - I like this option for those books I use again and again.
I had someone comment about the possibility of losing pictures or text with the addition of a spiral binding - I didn't lose anything in this book
But the spiral binding nicked a few words in this older book on a few pages- it doesn't bother me and nothing pertinent was lost, but you might want to take a closer look at the book you are considering to have spiral bound if you are concerned
This heavy, old chute is a workout and it's about all I can do to shut these doors 30 times. And you had better insure the latch catches properly or they will pop back open and knock your teeth out
DH's colts are coming along nicely
Here, let me show you how it's done! ~Grin~
We've had some spotty storms in the area and we lost power about 7 last night. it was after 11 when the Co-op showed up and began to run the line out and thankfully, power was restored at 3:30 this morning. We were sacked out when he first called after 9 to let us know he would be about an hour. Then he called back at 10:30 to ask where we were located. Then he showed up after 11. Poor guy was new and wandering around these back roads in the dark.
I need to bake more cookies because the last of what I had in the deep freeze went home with Cory.
I browned a Chuck roast this morning and cooked it in the Insta-Pot. We'll have roast today, green-chile roast burritos tomorrow, and then I'll make roast spread for sandwiches the next day
DH took another beef to Ft. Sumner on Monday to be processed so I'm moving things around to make room for about 350# of beef in a few weeks. We're branding next Wednesday and I think I'm fixing Barbecue Sandwiches because I've got to use up some of these roasts. I can smoke 3 on the smoker and they will make delicious Barbecue Sandwiches.
Tonight will be an early night because we've been getting up at 4 in order to be in the arena by 5:30 and after our late night visitor, I am beat. I don't bounce back from sleepless nights very well these days, but His mercies are new every morning
