The end of October is nearing...
and that means Halloween is just around the corner.
And if you have been a farm friend for long enough,
then you already know how we love to dress up for Halloween!
We have a whole host of tricksters here on the farm.
Sammie, of course, is our biggest trickster of all.
He's been working on his costume and just couldn't wait to share it with you!
He's a lazy old lion
who wouldn't hurt a flea!
he reminds me a little of the Cowardly Lion from Oz!
While we were busy with Sammie's photo shoot,
Miss Annie was preoccupied with something in the sky.
"What is it, Annie? Is it a bird? Is it a plane?"
Why, no... it's Hubbs flying his drone.
Since retiring, he has finally had the time to do software upgrades
and learn to fly his drone.
I included a little footage of our farm from the drone's camera.
I will try to narrate so that you know what you are looking at.
Please ignore the obvious pile of trash that is lying next to the barn.
We are in the process of doing what the Swedes call "death cleaning."
Seriously... it's a thing.
So that our children don't have to deal with every little thing that we saved over the years,
knowing that some day we might need it,
we are purging.
Closets... attics... garage... barn.
If we haven't used it in the past couple of years... it is leaving.
The idea is this:
Hold on to only that which brings you joy!
Ok.... here is the drone footage.
Our house does not show on any of this footage as it is hidden in the woods.
