Scavenger Hunt Sunday

28 Nov

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are: me, my grocery list, baking, kindness, and change of seasons.

We certainly are in the midst of a change of seasons.  We have had rain, mud, snow, sun, and freezing rain in the last few days, and it’s all in the forecast for the next couple of days too.

I brought my last pumpkin in before it froze, and it’s what I’m baking today.  It will be used for Christmas pies and whatever other goodies I can come up with.

Out of kindness, I took the pumpkin insides out to the chickens.

They love it!  I like giving them treats to make them happy, and it’s good for them too.  Raw pumpkin seeds are a natural wormer.

I had several requests for my grocery list.

Despite setting a pretty fancy table, some critters think I need to get some suet too.

From the looks of the goldfinch image, it looks like I need to add window cleaner to my grocery list too.

Getting ready for the Christmas markets is keeping me busy.  I’m going from an entire building at the pumpkin patch to a small table or two at the craft sales.

This might take some work to get half of the stuff there that I want.  I’ve also updated my on-line market to include my new soaps and the wax melts.

I am also sharing this with Bird d’Pot, Macro Monday, and I Heart Macro.

Three Seasons of Sky

5 Mar

When I went for my walk Sunday I got to see signs of three seasons.  There was a lone leaf still clinging to one of my oak trees.  That clearly says fall.

Looking across the fields though, there’s still snow on the ground.  It looks like winter

Obviously, the deer appreciate me leaving the gate open for them.

Later in the afternoon, the woodpecker boys were having a territorial spat.

How I hope those two birds are true heralds of spring.  Our forecast is looking much more like we’re going to get back to average and warmer temperatures.

Fall is Here

23 Oct

There’s no denying that fall is here.

I thought this leaf was pretty amazing.  It got itself stuck in the gate to the barnyard.

My corn is still out in the field.  It’s probably going to be there for a while yet.

It needs to dry. With the price of drying compared to the price its selling for, I need to make sure it’s dry before it’s combined.
