Hi, this is whats happening around here this evening. Wow, lots of fun. I borrowed a cauldron from my mother. (I hope she doesn't really expect it back any time soon, as I have many ideas tallow, soap etc...) We are boiling the head of the elk Casey got back in Oct. for a European mount. We (i mean he) will bleach it out with hydrogen peroxide after we get all the meat boiled off the head. I am excited about this because of my natural phase of decorating I am in right now. I like everything muted and monochramatic and bringing the outside in. For winter I want my house full of pinecones, pine boughs, dried tall grasses and dried up sunflowers. This is the goal, but first I need to figure out what to do with all my junk, clutter, and mess. I am trying to pack it way, but it takes some serious dicipline because I also like the stuff. Anyway, what fun to have a fire going outside. Makes me feel more connected to my pioneer ancestors. Oh, and we do enjoy being rednecks!
