Glorious Autumn Day
Today felt like a gift. The last week of October and the temps on this sunny day hit 65 degrees. We took advantage of the glorious day and spent it outdoors doing “get ready for winter” chores and just enjoying what may be the last summer-like day of the year.
We cut wood in the morning and Hannah helped Paul bury telephone cable in the afternoon.
I got sidetracked at the pond bird feeder time and time again. Today’s visitors included a flock of Grackles.
They alternated between the bird feeder and perching in the tree tops.
Every time they visited the bird feeder, the chickens came running to nibble on the feed the grackle’s dropped.
Even Paul took a few minutes to linger by the pond and enjoy this glorious day.

This was my greenhouse at the height of winter. The snow on the roof makes it look a bit lopsided, but the greenhouse stood strong to February’s heavy snow. It … Continue reading
