Autumn on the Farm

spectacular colors

warm hues

A cat that thinks he's a dog
but very much nervous around the REAL dog




I don't know if there is a time of year I don't enjoy here

walking in the woods with friends
still yet unseen
trails of tomorrows
to come

still with me?

those "getting ready for winter" projects

Each year, we have little projects that have piled up..
Ones that either are great to do when the weather has turned..
ones we have totally forgotten about 
to do till the weather begins to turn

with Hunting Season fast approaching
we realized that our coats and scarves and, and, and…
have little place to be hung…
YET there are a whole lotta "us"
and then..
there are guests..
So that said,
Machine Man made these great coat hangers..
he edged out the wood
and prepped them for me to paint..
then he put on the hooks

we matched the colors of the coat racks with 
the colors of the doors up stairs..
when the last of them is up
I will show you the photo..
but I have to say
they are beautiful
and sure are handy!

We have lots more "getting ready for winter" projects..
How about you?

the Baby Guineas

are the 
Empress Guinea Hens
they are Lavendar Guineas

and they are so adorable!
they will be a bit ugly in the face but...

that is OK with me…
they eat things the other birds don't love..
they LOVE to eat 
spiders of any shape or size
and they hunt down scary snakes

they will alert you to a change in any situation

they are like little watchdog birds
or watch birds
he he
they are growing bigger every day!
