Day After

I don't know about you, but I think I am still full from Thanksgiving dinner.  We did brave the horrible Black Friday crowds this morning but I have to say we only went to one store and that was tractor supply to get the hubby a gun safe.  They had the gun safe on sale for 300 hundred dollars off  the original price!  That was the only store we did visit and the crowd wasn't too bad!  I even got myself a new pair of boots (which makes two pair now!)  Hope you all had a good day.  The picture has nothing to do with what went on today it was one that I got from the archives and I thought it would be nice to see something else making pigs of themselves.   Have a great evening.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We had sweet potatoes, scalloped corn (thanks Mom!) and of course turkey that was 23 pounds.  I made pumkin pie, cherry pie and the husbands favorite mincemeat pie.  We are defiantly full and gained a few pounds today.  Then a wonderful sunset to end the day (the son took the picture of the sunset.)  I hope you all had a wonderful day.

What next

Yes, you got it. I went to buy some more wine the other day and came across this bottle! I had to buy it, I told the hubby it would make a great post. It was pretty darn good wine to, from my perspective that is. We had a party for the hubbies dad, he turned eighty last Thursday and we had a party at the house for him. Other than that the weekend was pretty quite. Didn't do much.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Sun and snow ?

This was last night at sunset!  We have snow this morning but we hardly have a dusting but I hear north of us they have a little bit more than we did, which is just fine with me but the thing is I have to drive in that direction this morning to get to school.  We shall see, a little more chilly this morning.  I think we have been pretty darn lucky with the weather this winter or fall which ever you want to call it.   The thing is we usually get our snow storm in February.  Hope all is good and have a great day!

Not much going on today, have school all day and then of course home and the regular farm things going on and the hubby went to look at a planer for his woodworking  and hopefully he gets a good deal on one.  He has been wanting one for a long time now.

Happy Birthday

This is my favorite father-in-law, and not too many people can say that about their in laws often. He turns 80 years young today. We hope he has many more ahead! We love you, Dad. From Matt, Tawny, Kegan and of course ME! If you ever need a book, he has lots of very nice military, hunting, and fishing books along with books on guns etc. Just go to Tryon Books! Have a great day.

Scarlet Runner Beans that is.  I don't have the picture of the greenery and the red flowers that these little beans produce in the summer months.  They produce beans also.  We let them dry out and then take them out of the pods and we can replant them in the spring.  They are edible if picked early.  If you pick the beans they will keep flowering and making more bean pods.  The bean itself is very pretty!  We got a good crop this year and we are going to share with the hubbies sister as she don't have anymore for next year.I got this picture from the Internet.  Hope you all had a great day.

Homemade beats bought

The hubby and son worked on building a new feed bunk this weekend. Before he added the hay rack above the bunk, we put the hay loose in the bunk and the cattle would just spread it all over the place especially over the ground. Then stomp on it and waste more than they ate. So now they have to work at it a little more and less goes on the ground! I think he did a pretty darn good job. I seem to be behind the eight ball a little, I should of taken before and  after pictures.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Its Full!

Well, as you can see the wood is all sawed, split and stacked. You can see that the shed is nice and full, the shed is 16' x 18' by 7' high! It usually lasts all winter but by the time spring has arrived we would of made a pretty good dent in it. The best part is the mess is outside and not in the house.

Thank goodness it is Friday but the thing is the work is never done even if it is a weekend. I think we work harder on weekends than during the week. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Who's Barn ?

Here we go again, it is winter time and now instead of having only two tractors in MY barn we now have three! The hubby insists that this is my barn and I insist that he is full of you know what! The stalls are accessible, I made sure of that! I told the hubby that he should of made his barn first but he didn't listen and now I have to share mine. Good thing I love him as much as I do, of course he can say the same thing because he actually did pay for most of it ;)

I got my mid-term grades in the mail today and I have B's and A's!!! Yippy, makes me want to go out and celebrate! But I will wait until I am done with the semester before I do that. I will have a beer tonight though and toast to myself!

Got Mail

One of the things that got done over the weekend was the mail box!! I have been after the hubby to replace the old one now for two years, his excuse for not doing so was time, and of course the snow plow will just hit it and ruin it again why bother? So, I had bought a really cheap tin one and the hubby didn't like it because it wasn't big enough and wouldn't last. So, of course, we had to go out and buy another one that was bigger and we happen to find one that was bigger and made out of steel! Let the snow plow hit this one!!! Hope you all are doing good and I will be by to comment as soon as I get a chance.

Have lots of school work and of course the weaving that has to be done by Christmas. So, forgive me if I blog sporadically.
