This week was crazy. We had to jam three weeks into one, because Scott was pulled away at the last minute for a two mission in California. So, we had to get out to Elgin Christmas Tree Farm and get our tree:
We had to get the house decorated, outside and in. We also had to pick up a couple of new Americanas, because we have had bad luck with chicks from the big chain stores (out of eleven, only 4 lived). So we went back to see our friends Gordon and Tiffany Lester at Hill Country Feed and picked up two that almost ready to start to laying. The local hatchers tend to take better care of their birds.
And all the while, Mychael picked up a couple of mid-week shifts at the hospital and continued to sew her butt off making the last few items to sell this Saturday at Marble Falls Christmas Market on Main.
And now, Scott is sick, which pretty much means a lot of the heavy lifting/outside farming stuff grinds to a halt. We hope he gets better before Saturday. We are looking forward to seeing anyone willing to come out. Its supposed to be a pretty nice day.
So this evening, we finished decorating the tree and built a fire.
I think we are caught up, sort of. Just one last push til the big day. We hope to see you there!
