Got to love the Snow

So here we are in the great white north and its towards the end of Nov. We have about 6-8 inches on the ground. Enough for my Al to gleefully plow out with his new snow thrower not once but twice!.

The Lambs had their first snow experiance and true to form Foote thought it might be something worth eating.

All work has stopped for the season on the Long Hall but we have the longest wall up and it is looking really sharp.

Al and I are still mulling over what colours to paint the house next spring ( good thing we started to think about the project now, it may take all winter to decide) so far shades of green are in the running , just as a side note last week it was shades of gray so check in for next weeks colour choice!

Where did the summer go?

Ok, so its been a while a long while since my last entry. But time really flies here on the farm and then suddenly its not summer anymore and the snow has started to fall.

The critters and us are all fine, though we sadly lost our beautiful rooster Harry to a hawk a few weeks back. A chicken coop is now in the planning stage. Harry's son Bera now rules the roost ( pardon the pun)

The Anglo-Saxon long house has a floor and roof and is looking great we held our first meeting there last month.

Lady, our percheron now has a small cart and harness that we are getting fixed up for her t0 tug around the farm so that will be fun.

We are starting to batten things down now for winter, the wood pile is stacked and all the summer stuff is packed away and oh yes the pool is finally closed!
