My blog grows up!

I now have a self-hosted blog: http://foraging4aliving.com/  I am a little sad to leave this one, but hope many of you will follow me there.  I am pretty excited to be doing this and have been web designing like crazy!
http://www.michellesweeten.com/ will hopefully be following my career and path to be a stay at home mom.  I have also re-vamped the ancient http://www.sweetenhayfarm.com/ and will be making more updates to it soon.

August is here.....

Indiana is still HOT HOT HOT!  Paul asks every 2-3 days if tomorrow is going to be cold.  Jeremy started early one day last week and was able to get the heifers worked (wormed, pregnancy checks, etc).  It was overdue, and we were planning to send several to auction or to become freezer beef.  However we only have one candidate!  The young bulls have been doing their jobs and the older one will be on his way to the auction instead. 

I have a waiting list for beef, so will have to see what we can come up with.  We are still out of hamburger ourselves, though I tried substituting sausage for hamburger in a few recipes.  So far no complaints.  We should have hamburger by the end of the month.  I am trying a new online meal planner.  I have done a paper one in the past and it really alleviated not only stress but saved us money as well.  I recieved the link for Say Mmm from Money Saving Mom.  The giveaway is over, but the free service is awesome as well!    Last week was VBS at church and the kids really enjoyed it.  I helped every evening, so now the house is a wreck.
