Baby turkeys come tomorrow, which means extra long days for Bart as he cares for the "little fellows."
He also has to take fat samples this week because we have another flock almost ready for market. This means he kills 6 turkeys and sends fat samples to the processing plant to be tested for safety. And then we clean the turkeys and fill the freezer with lean turkey breast.
In addition to the busy-ness on the farm, I have to go back to work tomorrow. Most years, I'm excited for school to start, but I'm having trouble finding the silver lining this year. I have gotten into a groove at home and I'm not looking forward to interrupting that.
Although my boys drive me crazy at times, I enjoy having more flexible time to spend with them, instead of the hectic, trying-to-get-everything-done-after-work evenings that are coming up.
|I obviously had some funky camera settings going on, but look at those blue eyes!|
Here's hoping everything goes smoothly and this week turns out to be less stressful than we are anticipating!
