It's Friday already!
After a rainy Thursday, it has cleared and we are headed for much colder temperatures
this weekend...maybe even a little snow flurry activity.

Brrrrrr...thank goodness we have lots of firewood.
Our post-tree-cutting projects are nearing completion.
All of the wood is neatly stacked in this line leading through the woods to the picnic pavilion,

and on our main wood pile behind our farmhouse.
We are slowly finishing up the wood chipping.

However, no outside work was done yesterday.
We all sought shelter for the day as it rained cats and dogs.

By late afternoon the sky cleared

 and everyone emerged ready to eat.

After making sure that everyone had fresh feed
(rainwater took care of all the watering tubs!)...
I headed home to try a new recipe.

made for a hearty (and super easy) dinner for a grey, soggy day.
This recipe is seriously good!

It won't be long before salad will be harvested from the greenhouse.
The seedlings are all happily growing.

Sugar peas....


Radishes and kale...

It's nice to still witness the emergence of new life as our temperatures begin to plummet...
not to mention having home grown greens to supplement our meals.

We have a very quiet weekend planned here...
with a possible visit from Tyler and his Mommy and Daddy.

Whatever your weekend holds for you....
I hope it's a good one!
