Leftovers Again!

23 Sep

Hopefully, this weekend’s weather will let me get out and do some work around the farm that will give me something to blog about.  In the meantime, I’ve just got leftovers for you.

Is It Fall?

6 Sep

September 1st is meteorological fall and Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer, but we have still been warm.  It feels like summer.

But if I look closely, I can see a hint of fall in my corn.

The llamas are growing their fleece.

I already mentioned that the peacock lost his tail.  He’ll spend all fall and winter growing it back out to look beautiful for the chickens in the spring.

The chickens still won’t care.

It’s clearly sunset on summer even if it isn’t real fall yet.

But it makes me look forward to real fall.

Going Into the Weekend

2 Sep

I am so glad this is a three-day weekend.  I need it.  I have a lot of that catching up to do again.

some of the canning I’ve done

I also wanted to mention that the reason Mr. Peacock is looking so bad is because he’s molting. I get so used to the rhythms of the farm that I forget to give explanations.

He’s lost almost all of his tail now, even the little ones since I took this picture.

The goose has also been doing her annual molt.

It’s just a lot harder to notice since she’s not losing a really long tail.

You don’t even notice her short wing feathers that she’s growing back in.

Just my dog.  I took this to share on FB for national dog day. Am I the only one who wonders when all these national days were created?

Salem and Herbie are having way too much fun together.  It reminds me very much of how much fun Tiger and Salem had not too long ago.

I’m still having a hard time knitting with all the expert help.

And all the tomatoes too.  I just haven’t had time.  But I am currently working on a fringed scarf.  Then I’ll add a hat and mittens to match.

Because I keep gaining knitting stuff, I decided I needed a better way to store all my stuff, so I bought a little cabinet for it.  I just love the cabinet!

Finally, my house is really looking a lot smaller. All six of my boys were lounging in the house.  I really need to quit gaining cats.

Hope you have a great weekend.
