A Day in The Life of A Mountian Chick
It's been such an incredible autumn. We've been busy harvesting and processing the abundance of wild organic game that God has provided us with. The other night, I wasn't quite as grateful as I probably should have been. I was up till midnight cleaning the kitchen after processing and I was exhausted! That next day my men were gone hunting all day. I had agreed to take another friends children so she and her husband could get their hunting tags filled. I wondered how I'd have the energy to keep up with them after so little sleep but they didn't end up coming till late morning. Then they were glued to "Loony Tunes" and "Tom and Jerry". They don't have television, so its a novelty for them. It made for a really easy babysitting day. I had to force them to pause the TV for an art project, food and a little outdoor play! It was no trouble at all and they were perfect angels.
I'm also so excited that a real, seasoned mountain man is coming to our Thanksgiving Day Dinner along with our friends Mist and Fiery. It should make for an unforgettable occasion. The above photos were taken by my son, "The Archer" while out hunting. The below ones are what they brought home yesterday.
