There is a chill in the air. Okay, more then a chill. It been down to 11 degrees at one point. I think fall is officially over. And the smattering of snow flurries near the weekend only confirm my suspicions that Old Man Winter is creeping around here. Dirty old man needs to wait a little longer before he starts strutting around acting like he owns the place!
We have been keeping busy with the last minute winter prep. There is always so much to do to get ready and never enough time. Though I am thankful that when I am working outside and come in the house, 64 degrees (what we keep out thermostat at) feels like a sauna!
Thw winter “hobbies” are being picked back up, with evenings of knitting by my men folks. I am also starting to get the itch to bake everything now that running the oven feels so good in the house. And of course I am starting to plan our little Thanksgiving meal. I’m can’t wait to bake up all those lovely pies and bread items for the table!
The littlest country kid had his basketball workshop. He is enjoying himself, but I am not sure
he is improving much. He shoots, he doesn’t score, but he sure loves shootin!
What better way to start the week then with some big ol fluffy butt! I can’t help it,
fluffy butts make me smile! They’re just so squishy!!!
|When the temperature drops, it’s time for some comfort food. Beef and barley soup, it’s what’s for dinner!|
|I haven’t figured out what she did naughty, but from the guilty look, she did something and she knows it! She won’t even make eye contact with me! Oh, Heidi. You’re too cute to be so ashamed of whatever it is you did!|
Breakfast time! Lily said she would share with you, but you probably wouldn’t like her pellets.
Me? I’m heading inside for some yogurt and toast. It was nice of her to offer, but I’ll pass.
|It’s been a little windy. Ducks + pool + Fall = LOL|
The oldest country kid finished his first knitting project, it’s a potholder.
It has some issues, but it’s better than I could do!
|When you measure thirty million times before you start building and it still doesn’t fit. Guess I need to take one side off and cut another inch off. *sigh* A carpenter I am not, but I make up for it with determination!|
I got the “remodel” done for our flock. New nesting box area, a new roost, and lots of fun straw!
|What an amazingly beautiful start to the day!|
|You know you’re the “chicken friend” when people text you when they see chicken stuff they know you would love. Not only did she tell me what store these Sloggers were at, but which location (aka the one on such and such road) LOL|
