This weekend was... beset with awfulness, but ended with wonderfulness. The chickens are free!! I actually videotaped their liberation and will try to piece together a little vlog for later this week. But just about everything that could go wrong at the launch party, did. That's okay, though, 'cause the chickens are fat and happy now in their new pad, and I have my garage back.
On Sunday, after early Mass (hey, 9am is early on a Sunday!) I made guacamole, ten pounds of chicken wings and four dozen taquitos for the Steelers/Jets game. It was loads of fun to be in the kitchen working on a grand scale project, again, and the spoils were pretty stinkin' delicious. I really don't give a hoot about football, but I have lots of ties to Pittsburgh, so Go Steelers!
Some plans for this week: Actually, I haven't made any plans for this week! My husband and I are implementing a new evening prayer routine (so far so amazing), so I hope to keep that going.
There is some idle chatter going around about building a little greenhouse, now that the coop is finished.
Oh yes, I never made that beef jerky last week, so that's on the agenda for sure.
If I have some time to myself, I want to... learn how to edit videos.
Prayer intentions for this week: in thanksgiving that the domestic chicken saga is now over. In gratitude for my husband, whose boundless love never ceases to amaze, humble, and woo me. And for our baby nephew who is taking some intense life-threatening but hopefully life-saving medication.
Something that makes me smile: the fact that my husband left me a bunch of leftover chicken wings for lunch. What a man!
