Happy Columbus Day

Happy Fall. The trees have adorned their fall foliage, the colors of reds,yellows, and bright orange are changing to amber, burnt red and oranges and rust. They are all still beautiful just in a rustic country fashion now. Changes on the farm as we get ready for the winter ahead. Gardens are done, berries are picked and froze until time allows me to make jams and jellies. The log pile still sits out there although it is getting smaller weekly.LOL We have started to run our wood furnace and it is just enough o take the chill off for the kids in the morning.
The horses come home next week after the vacation to another home for the summer. Miss Daisy hasnt kidded yet but she sure is getting close.
Making laundry soap today as I am finally out. Nothing better than clothes hung out to dry. Picked the last of the green tomatoes yesterday now will dig out the canning supplies to make relishes and pickles. Going to go t the Orchard and get a bushel of apples to can and dry for pies and to make jelly for the pantry. I think I have talked Rob into a root cellar finally, been a few yrs coming. And my kitchen cook stove will be moved over to the new kitchen, although I think I am going to have to get a smaller one as the kitchen is going to be smaller, new chimney has to be put up also.
I really just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing and see how your fall is going, what exciting things your getting to do. How are you preparing for winter?
So for now from the farm have a Blessed day and enjoy and few minutes and silence and take in the good around you.
