Day to day goings on here at the farm. Everything from weather to horses and donkeys to chickens to cats and dogs and everything in between. Some blogs will be informative. While others will be I hope, just entertaining and keep you coming back. And of course there will be pictures.

A few more days
A few more days and the big move is happening. We have been going to the new house getting it prepared. You know, the hanging of the curtain rods and curtains, shower curtains, scrubbing all surfaces, weatherizing windows, etc.. There is a Quince tree next to the garage. I don't even know if I spelled it right or exactly what type of fruit it bears. If you look in the center of the pic you can see a yellow looking ballish shape. That's the fruit.
Before moving in, a wood stove has to be placed in the fireplace. There is an oil furnace, but at three dollars a gallon, well, using that is not an option. So..... our heat source will come from a good old fashioned wood stove! That alone should be interesting since I have become accustomed to pushing a button for heat or air.
Behind the house there is this huge tree that produces the most beautiful little red berries. Haven't a clue what the tree is but in time I will figure it out.
On the way home form the new house yesterday I saw a huge rainbow going over one other Table Rocks. Since the new house is on the other side of the valley I won't get to see the Table Rocks unless I drive to this side of the valley.
Now, I am going to try to play catch up with what is going on with all of you!!!
