Yesterday came and went with much food. I really think Martha Stewart is no match for Stephanie. We had a 23 lb turkey, 5 lb roast leg o' lamb, (fresh from our pasture) mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, carrots, oyester stuffing, cranberries, dinner rolls, iced tea, and Merlot. That was just the main course. For dessert we had 4 pumpkin pies, 1 mincemeat , 1 pecan, and a huge bowl of Amish date pudding. I don't think any one moved after that meal. I had a good time. I went out after noon ( and the meal) to hunt, I didn't see anything and then went in about 5:45pm. I will go out again tomorrow. We think that we will have the fence finished and will be able to let the cows into the new pasture it is about 60 acres. Then we can move on the to the pig house. the two sows are bred to ferrow in January. oh, I almost forgot, Maggie, our sheep is starting to milk up so that doeasn't give her too much longer. and Sally (I think.) one of our goats, will have twins in January as well. She is huge!
