For one, I mulled and canned the apple cider (seen up top). FINALLY!!!
As mulled cider goes it came out okay. Not great as the fresh stuff does, as the fresh cider definitely has more depth of flavor, but it's not bad by any stretch. So, yay for getting that done!
I finished one Christmas gift today (more on that later) and got a couple more in the works. I also figured out what I want to make for my new nephew and made sure I had the materials to do that. And I even managed to get a few pieces of mending done today.
I ground my wheat to use in baked goods.
The chickens were supposed to go home today, but my friend ended up calling it off for today as she was super sore from moving and taking a fall on the ice today (which I totally understand). So our feathered friends are with me for a few more days from the look of it.
I'm happy with how much I got done in a few days worth of time, I have to say.
Now onto this week's goals:
Canning/Food Preservation Goals:
- Make canned coleslaw (I am pretty sure I found enough jars to get this done and I have the head of cabbage in the fridge, so yay!).
- Make small gift basket of canned goods as a house warming gift for my friend (she's really good to us, including giving us a really expensive CPAP machine that she has an extra of, so I want to do something nice for her to congratulate her on her new home).
- Work on Christmas gifts
- Work on Mending
- Work on couches
- Sort laundry and put away
- Clean ceiling fans
- Scrub children's walls
And there you are folks. My goals for this week. How about you? Got anything planned?
