A Perfect Fall Day

11 Nov

This weekend was perfect for enjoying late fall and preparing for winter.  We’ve had frosty mornings, and Sunday was no different, other than we didn’t have gale force winds for a change.

After the sun came up, it was perfect for winterizing.

We’re expecting our first hard freeze that will last for nearly a whole day.

I had to put out the heated buckets and plug in the heaters for the cattle tanks.

I’ve started closing doors and putting windows in.  I forgot to buy tarps, so I’ll have to finish winterizing next weekend or over Thanksgiving break.

Soon I’ll be feeding hay to the animals too.

Slowly, we’re getting ready for the cold.
