Home and butchering time

We're home from Tanya;s furneral.  All went well and we spent a few days with her hubby and the two kids.  Dave and Seth helped inventory Tanya's Beauty shop Tim did errands.  Now he knows what is basically there and will try to sell it for that just to get out from under it.

Was an exhausting trip and we all seem to be coming down with colds and etc.

Thursday Dave had to put wood on the front porch for our 2 week supply and plowed the 5 inches or so of snow out of the driveway.

We slaughtered the beef before we left for AZ. with Todd and Cory's help.

Dave and I butchered both hind quarters on the beef cow Friday to get a start on it.  Worked until around 3;30 and then went into town to get some more supplies, Food Saver bags and lined butcher paper and so on. 

 We brought the hind quarters down from the barn on sleds.

When we got home we started in on the 2ed hind quarter and finished just after 10:30 pm. 

We startd in on the rest of it Saturday morning (today) and Todd and Corey showed up shortly after.

Kathy just came home from school, they sent her home because of her cold.  

We ae still working on the beef, all have a good week .

Death of a daughter

Sad to say our daughter Tanya who had just turned 40 yrs old the 28th of Nov 2012 passed away 3 Dec. 2012. It was sudden and we will miss her greatly in this life.

She left behind her husband and a daughter 16 yrs old and a 6 yr old son.

She had a unknown cist sitting on a artery, it burst and complained of a stomach ache and died shortly after 6 pm.

Tanya you have gone on ahead but you will always be with us.
