Pressure cooker chicken

I’m standing next to the pressure cooker, with my new laptop stand in front of me. I’m keeping an eye on the pressure cooker, and one of the chickens we butchered on Saturday is inside.
I’m hoping that this turns out well, because I’ve never taken a bird out of the freezer, whacked it into a pressure cooker, and cooked it for supper before.
I have potatoes in the microwave, and the gravy was also a recent resident of the freezer. This meal is 90% fresh made, and I hope a good one.
I’m sweating like a butcher, cause the stove is knocking out a lot of heat for just a little country stove. Of course, the microwave is also rocking out a bit of heat too. I’m roasting the potatoes in the microwave, because I didn’t want to overload the pressure cooker.
This laptop stand cost me $1.00 at the auction on Sunday. It’s actually an ultrasound table on wheels, but it works slick for what I need it for. I love being a scrounger.
Meanwhile, it’s going to be raining before long, and I have an important phone call to make in 36 minutes.
I have to de-pressurize the thing now. Talk to you tomorrow.

Good afternoon

Hello all,
It’s about 1 in the afternoon, and Dad is taking his Siesta. We’ve adopted the work early, nap, and work later method of chores on the farm. It’s too hot in the middle of the day to get much done outside, and I’m in no condition to drop a gallon of sweat each time I walk out doors.
So, we take it easy in the heat of the day, and figure out the rest as time goes by.
This morning I had to make a quick trip to Minnesota. I came back, checked on the critters, and headed to the camper for a short smoke pack refill, as well as a few quick tears.
What’s going on is not fit for public consumption quite yet. I have lots of homework to do before the apropriate words will show up here.
Meanwhile, I will be planting trees this evening when the heat dies down a bit. I’ll also be planting a few flowers, and getting some stuff in the house organized.
I’m planning to have a rummage sale coming up, and I want to be ready.
That’s all for now, as the first post I wrote I deleted before publishing, and I’m a bit of a wreck at this time.
