Winter is coming! Winter is coming! It is…. It’s been in the 40’s all week and hubby (who drives truck) saw snow north of us. It is only a matter of time before it creeps further south.
We finally have gotten the garden ready to sleep for the winter. We harvested some late broccoli, cauliflower, peppers and tators. We managed to get the critter shed cleaned this week and ready for the snow to fly. We also started working on our 80 lbs of black walnuts we have been drying. I can’t wait to use those in my holiday baking!
Pink eye made the round in preschool this week and the littlest country kid got it. Thankfully none of the rest of us did! But the cold and cough he has been battling did find its way to me. Ugh, sinus pressure.
The critters are all doing well, except poor Buffy who is the last of the girls to molt. Her feathers are starting to come in, but with these cold temps (down in the 30’s at night) she better hurry up and finish up!
|A little fall bouquet from my garden!!!! Pretty and tastes great too!|
|Poor “Puffy Buffy” is no longer puffy. She is a hot mess of molting that’s what she is. No tail what so ever and these wings. Yet she struts the yard like she owns it!|
|Went out to close up for the night… Ms. Cinder has decided (or maybe she snores and the rest of the girls have decided) that she isn’t going to roost on the roost. Really? Found her way up on a shelf just as smug as could be.
|Mr. Bill, Betty (on the left) and Baby Girl (on the right), I love these ducks!|
|My snugly puss who loves to take naps with me.|
|Beautiful, even if she is naughty and still refusing to sleep on the roost.|
|Yes, yes I do tuck Heidi the homestead hound in for bed. I had to tuck her in, cause I am a good critter mama, it’s what we do. It’s been dipping into the 30’s at night. Don’t judge! LOL|
|Who’s handsome? Yes, Mr. Bill, you are! Who’s my pretty boy? Who’s my pretty boy? I think he is blushing! LOL|
