Here And There
Well, I finally got a little time to scratch out a post for ya'll. Things have been so hectic. They have cut out our over-time at work but I have had a few other errands to do after work and my connection is still crappy here. Jack is working on that so maybe it will get better. Right now I am at a local bookstore where I can get a decent connection. Weekends are no time to rest either as I have to play catch up when I get home. One of the stores that carries my pottery has placed a fairly large order for Christmas so I've been working on that in amongst the usual house chores. The bit I got planted in the garden is doing well at least. Each weekend I get a little more of the garden cleaned up and such.
However, Jack and I have made time for some fun here and there. This past Saturday we went to a play and then out to a very nice, cozy meal at a very cool restaurant in Birmingham. It was fun.
Speaking of food; Jack harvested 4 of the roosters. Mainly the white Leghorns. They were not real plump but one of them made a real nice pot of soup that you see here and I see dumplings in the future for another. It was very tasty. Jack is still coming to terms with and sharpening his skills at dressing chickens but he has done well I think.
Not a lot else to report, just busy, busy, busy and to top it all off, the one other welder that might have helped me some at work was involved in a equine accident over the weekend and is so broken up I don't believe he'll be back any time soon. It looks like I'm going to get stuck with all this steel no matter what. They have at least assigned a carpenter to me full time to help me in whatever way I need. He is a real nice guy too and willing to do whatever to help out.
So, I'll try to be back soon and maybe with some better pictures. I haven't even had time to take any and the fall colors will most likely be gone by the time I get home again.
