A beautiful Saturday sunrise ushered in another change of season.
It turned sharply colder this weekend.
Just in time for our family pizza party.
We created individual pizzas...
on homemade traditional and purple sweet potato crusts...
and sat by the fire...
and napped by the fire...
spending another fun family get-together in the pavilion.
(It may be the last of the year...
as cold weather has arrived.)
It is so much fun having kids who are young adults.
Spending time with them and their friends keeps us young, also!
Thanks all, for joining us on Saturday...we love your company!
The front pasture has been hit by multiple frosts,
so, grass for grazing will soon become scarce.
It does the equines good to get out and forage,
even if there is not much to eat.
We'll fill their bellies with hay this winter,
but time spent out in the pasture is good mental and physical stimulation.
As for me, the cold weather brings an end to many outdoor chores
and allows me to concentrate my energy indoors.
Window-washing should be first on my list.
Sadly, one of the bad things about having large windows
is the birds' propensity for flying headlong into them.
Amazingly, yesterday we had one such incident,
and the bird (after lying motionless for quite some time)
eventually flew off!
He must have knocked himself out.
Any suggestions for preventing this in the future?
I realize that the cleaner my windows are, the more likely this is to happen.
