We are spending more time around the pellet stove than we had thought we would at this time of the year. Our first snow was last Thursday. We hadn't even had a frost yet, although that came Thursday night into Friday. Our second snow was Saturday into Sunday. Like so many others, we awoke to a light coating of snow on the ground. We were very fortunate that we didn't receive the 12+ inches so many others did. Thank you Mother Nature, we are glad you spared us.
I always have a laundry list of things I think I'll accomplish over the weekend. Before I know it the two days have come to an end and only half of my checklist has checks beside it. In my ongoing efforts to make so much of our food from scratch as well as garden, blog, craft and create I find myself running out of time quickly. I think I need to organize my weekends better. This sounds like a perfect New Year's resolution!
So, the weekend is over and suddenly I'm realizing it's Halloween. We had a little dress up party of our own. The chickens and the cats refused to participate as did the adults, but the dogs allowed me to entertain myself. Our theme? Backyard Farms.
What does every backyard farm need?
and a chicken.
If you think you are reading absolute disgust and upset on their faces you are correct.
Sure was cute though!
