It's been a while since I've posted...
A lot has been happening, but my "get up and go" must've "got up and went"! My camera has been pretty idle. There have been a bunch of things that I've had to cross off my list...stressful things...but hopefully I can put them behind me. The time change certainly hasn't helped anything. This getting dark early stuff is for the birds! I need lots of sunlight/daylight to keep me going!
In the meantime...fall has been in full swing. The rye grass behind the barn is growing, and I think this is one of the most beautiful views of the farm!
The corn and soybean harvest have been finished for a while now, and they both yielded very well. Jim is about finished with baling corn fodder. The barn is full...
He finished cleaning out heifer pens...aka spreading pazutski...over the weekend, and now it's on to some other things like moving calves around, repairing some leaky water bowls and lots of other busy work. The weather has been beautiful! It's actually rather dry, and the fall leaves have been hanging on extra long this year. Jenna and I went on a college visit near Philadelphia on Friday, and the drive was spectacular!
Phoebe is growing...and is a mixture of sweet...
I will say, I wasn't very happy with her this weekend! On Friday night we noticed that we are down one chicken...thanks to miss Phoebe. :( And on Sunday morning, Jim noticed that she had chewed off some wires on his sprayer. :( It's a good thing she's so sweet!
Yesterday afternoon, when Jim and I returned home from an afternoon at Eric's cross country banquet at college, we were greeted by the sweetest, most enthusiastic, warm, wiggling little brown body, and it almost made me forget that I was frustrated with her. Puppies are definitely a lot of work. We don't want her to be "one of those dogs" that people don't want to be around because she jumps up, destroys things, etc. We're slowly getting there!
What are your fall days busy with?
