It is really windy here today. There isn't a lot to do inside. It is cold outside and that's why i'm writing. We did start to put in a outlet upstairs but we got cold. There isn't much to write about,

Yesterday and the day before we were really busy. Two days ago we went to our friends the Hendersons place. We left at 7:30 a.m. and it was still dark outside. We got there at around 9:30 a.m. The reason we went was to help them butcher their hogs. After the killing and gutting we skinned them and brought them in the house. They used a band saw for meat and that helped speed things up. We left there at around 11:30 p.m. and had only sliced and wrapped one of the three hogs. They gave us the meat from the one we wrapped. We got home at about 1:00 a.m.

That morning Dad had to get the copier machine to Minot by 8:00 a.m. so he got Jonathan up at 5:30 a.m. and loaded it up. Dad left at 6:30 a.m. At 9:00 a.m. we got a phone call asking if we could go help do a bulk mailing at Metigoshe Ministries. We did that until 3:30 p.m. Then Dad got back before supper.

The next day. Today it wasn't so busy. We did homeschool in the morning and then had lunch. I did dishes for lunch. I went outside after dishes and started helping Andrew and David make a snowman but I had to go help Jonathan on the barn door. Dad got some heavy hinges when he went to Minot so we needed to put those on the door. Before today we would nail on the door with nails at night. Today we won't have to do that any more. We screwed the hinges on and made a latch for it. Now the turkeys won't get in there and poop all over! It makes a mess. I guess we are going to have popcorn for supper,
