Wild Winds....

We had our first fire in the wood stove last night.  It was in the 40s.
 This morning it was still grey and cold.

 The girls have started growing their winter coats...
 and tomorrow we are going to reinstall the plexiglass windows.

 Steady (and high) winds all day long.
Moved the farm wagon to it's place for the winter but had no 
desire to stay outside.

 and Phoebe 
went with me to Weggies and the gas station.
They love to go for rides.
 As of late, I spend many hours doing campaign work.
Only a month to go.
Did manage pick some veggies near evening chore time.
 This squash was hiding under the rhubarb and I also picked more cucumbers.
Ate some raspberries that were nearby.
 While Karen did chores I grabbed a few shots of the girls.
 have to
 see them
 they get tucked in.

 Don't like to miss out on this.
 While I went to a meeting
Gary and Jenny spent the evening in Rochester.
First they went to dinner,
and then went on an "Inside Down Town" tour.
 Here are a couple of the buildings they visited.

Jenny's birthday present to Gary.  They had a great time.
Night all.


  1. We'll be building a fire ourselves this weekend, the high tomorrow will be 59!!! I'm so not ready for this.

  2. Cold, rainy and windy here too. Actually put the heat on to take the chill off. But by Monday it should be back to 60. Guess it's time to start breaking out the sweatshirts and sweater though, just in case.
