I got woken up at about 1:30 am this morning, just as the power was going out. The wind was blowing so hard, I thought my little house was going to blow away to Oz!
By the time morning had arrived, the weather was gorgeous... still no power, but at least it wasn't cold out.
This morning was doomsday for the turkeys. I was so terrified to catch the damn things, I called a friend over to help. Amanda and Tyler came over late last nite... it was amazing to watch! Amanda has no fear at all, and just went and grabbed those turkeys by the neck, and picked them up around their bodies. It took her and Tyler all of 15 minutes to get them all... even when 2 of them flew over the fence and escaped. We just herded them back in, and poof! They were caught. I pick them up tomorrow morning. Wonder what's on the menu tomorrow night? Oh! It must be TURKEY! I can't wait to taste one of these things- see if they are worth all the pain and trouble they have caused!
I spent most of the day outside with the dogs, gardening. I weeded a bunch of beds... getting ready for planting season! and noticed that my garlic is coming up already. Is garlic coming up in January a record? Just shows how mild this winter has been so far. I also spent alot of time picking up blown down branches, and putting them in the compost.
Will let you know how dinner tastes tomorrow...!!!
Won’t give in to the cold
