Golden Hour

12 Oct

We’ve had some amazing sunsets lately.  It’s partly the time of year, but it’s also impacted by all the smoke in the atmosphere.

It’s beautiful to see, but hard on the allergies.

Fall Days

10 Oct

Even though we’ve been unusually warm this week (back in the 80’s), it is looking like fall.

The days are getting shorter.

Maybeline

The goats and llamas have less time out in pasture.

Bambi and the others coming into the barnyard.

I am not sure I’m ready for the short days and winter chores.

Thought I’d also share one of Maybeline that lets you see how stinkin’ cute she is.

But they will be here soon.

Work To Do

19 Sep

After the derecho, there is still much work to do around here.

With over four inches of rain, it’s obvious that the barn roof needs work.

This hole allows a lot of water to come in and make it muddy.

I did have someone come out and I have them booked to make the repairs to the garage, north shed, and barn roofs.  In addition to repairing the storm damage, they are going to work on sealing the barn roof so it doesn’t leak into the chicken’s section.

I need to protect it so that my barn can keep standing for another hundred years.

I want my birds to have a nice dry place to live.

It’s the least I can do since they give me yummy eggs.

And all I can say about that one egg in the middle is “ouch.”

Seriously.  In other news, the geese have adjusted to being outside quite well.

They do go in the barn, but they spend most of the time outside, even during horrible storms.

Hopefully, we can avoid those for a while now because the roofer is booked through the rest of the year already.  I’m not sure when he’ll get here to fix my roofs.
