Our Weekend

Our weekend was pretty simple and went really fast. Friday after I picked my kiddies up after school, as I do every Friday as a little treat. We went to town. Jill needed a new top as she is out growing hers and what she has not out grown is pretty ratty. After getting a new one at the general store we walked around and picked up a few staples I needed for this weeks meals and lunch boxes. We ordered our feed for the chickens and horses, and Justin went out to open the jeep for the guy to load us up. We ran into a friend on the way out and chatted for a good half hour.
We got home and the kiddies went out o help Hubby with the barn work while I got busy on supper. I took out some donair meat earlier in the morning and warmed it up with some pits breads. Chunked up some onion, and tomato,shredded some lettuce, and cheese, and made up a batch of donair sauce. YUM!
After supper we all settled in to watch TV before hitting the sac.

Saturday was a nice but cool day. The wind chill made it feel colder then it was. We  grilled some sausages on the grill and worked most of the day on the barn. We thought for sure my old sheep Wolly was going to lamb my night fall, but no luck as of yet.
Hubby and I got ready and went out for supper with a friend for St.Patrick's Day. We had corn beef and caggage with Irish stew. It was delish.

Today was a freezing cold day the wind is still blowing hard, and has made it hard to keep the house warm. We had breakfast burttois for brunch and went out to get the barn work done. I was feeling a bit tired as I have not been sleeping well with awaiting the arrivals of lambing.
I made up a new recipe for cookies for the lunch boxes that I watched on Pioneer Women this morning. Monster cookies. They were really good. They had a lot of ingredients in them but I think that is why they were sooooo good. I had o hide them in the back of the pantry for the evening so I will have something for the morning to put into the lunch boxes. ( I hope they don't read my post before then) hehe!! :)

We are suppose to have another huge snow storm on Wednesday, I sure hope this will be the last of them. I have had my fill of snow for one year.

Well time to do my barn check before bed. Take care everyone and I hope the weather is nice where you are.


  1. Sounds like you have been busy. Monster cookies yummy!! What is donair meat? We didn't get any snow this year. :( I am ready for spring though. This warm snap has given up spring fever. Hope you all are well.


  2. I am ready for spring too. We are covered with ice today and cold. I know what you mean about the wind. It sure does make it hard to keep our house warm as well. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  3. Hi, Jessica, sounds like it was a wonderful weekend at your place! I hope your sheep will lamb soon and you will share pictures. :)

    I hope you are having a great week.
