Then, we picked the 8 largest heads of cabbage and made them into 13 quarts of sauerkraut. Jacob was our shredder man...
We even had sauerkraut for supper (some that was left yet from last years' work.)
Later, after the cabbage project was finished, I started some milk warming for making yogurt with, and then I gave Jacob a haircut. I had hoped to do it outside, but just as we headed out, it began to rain, so we resorted to setting up barber-shop in the kitchen. Shortly after I finished with Jacob's "Shearing", Dad and Andrew returned from the hayfields out West and sat down for their haircuts too, Mom doing Dads' and me doing that other brother of mine's hair.
Please join us in praying for my dad as he has a very bad toothache and can hardly talk for all the pain it gives him. We're trying lots of natural things, but are concerned that he may have to have the tooth extracted, as it's hurt him for a couple days already and isn't getting better.......
Mother has really been enjoying the juicer she ordered through Dr. Mercola's website a couple weeks ago. She made a bunch of cabbage juice today and said it was good to drink------after she added a bit of salad dressing to it. :)
Before I go tonight, I want to point you all in the direction of an encouraging post over at "Every Thought Captive". It is about witnessing for our Lord and the opportunities that are all around us if we only have eyes to see and the courage to speak.
