The calendar tells me it's November 28th. The thermometer tells me that it's Indian summer - the temp was 65 degrees today! All of our snow is melting and we have mud........each year it seems Mother Nature cannot make up her mind when it comes to winter - is it or isn't it? We are prepared....and I would really love a white Christmas :)
The sheep and chickens are very happy to have bare ground again. The chickens spend their days out pecking and scratching. The sheep looking for a blade of grass that they may have missed the day before. Keeps them busy and out of trouble.
We had a busy post thanksgiving weekend. We are preparing to open our "Shoppe" each weekend for the month of December. Working full time leaves me little time for my sweet little shoppe. I do love spending time there and am really looking forward to being open.
Yesterday we trekked through the woods tipping balsams, spruce and white pine. We are making and selling wreaths this year. It's been quite some time since I have made wreaths and it was so enjoyable to be in the woods. The air was so fresh and it was so quiet. We are offering 18" wreaths with a bow and pine cones. The photo below is the wreath we are offering. I'm hoping to make a few after work each night and have a nice selection for the weekend.
