Weekly Summary


Maine Man suggested I do a weekly post summarizing the chaos of our lives. Not sure this will be a regular thing but this was a perfect week to do.
* Kitten takes ride to school with MM to pick up kids......under suburban. Amazingly unharmed.
* Rabbits get loose for 282nd time this summer. MM open fires and guess what we have for dinner.
* Boxer injures 1 duck and kills 2. Last week she killed a rabbit.
* Pumpkin & Ham don't go well together! Pigs.....Pumpkin some how gets into Ham's pen and Ham nearly shred her to pieces. Never seen anything like it! THANK GOD MM had not left for work yet!
* Flower Girl & I were struck with a horid gastroenteritis.
* MM was down with a nasty respiratory illness.
Those were just a few of our finer moments so far this week, still have 4 days left.
You had to hear MM narrate of the kitten story, I laughed until tears. Glad the little man was safe.
As for rabbit meat, we all love it. I think it tastes better then chicken. The first time MM cooked it he used a slow cooker. It was ok. Along with it he cooked a duck. FG's exact words were "I liked the bunny better!" I had to agree. I really did not care for the duck. Second time around he coated it and baked it in the oven, yummy!
P.S. BOXER FREE FOR THE TAKING!

Oh please make this a regular feature! We have TOTALLY had these kinds of weeks. I well remember the time we came home to a neighbor's dog having "gotten into" our chicken pen, the time the pigs got out and rooted up our neighbors lawn, the time a goat got out and ate a poisonous plant. Farming is not a desk job, is it? Nor is it an 8 hr/5 days a week job. Hope this next week is easier!

It's always good to know we are not alone in the world of chaos -- even as I am feeling so sorry about someone else going through it too. At least you made it through...

Happy to have found your wonderful blog...

YD, sometimes with Samantha & June said...

What a chaotic week. Hope everyone is getting better now.

Oh gosh I wish we lived closer to one another. We keep talking about butchering our 6 rabbits and haven't done it. Neither hubby or I can bear to do it!! I have heard how yummy it is. I wonder if I can find someone to do it.
