November musings

Who'd a thunk it? A rose in November.

Well the weather here has been wild and wacky for the month of November. Sunny and hot one day, freezing and windy the next. Or rain, rain and more rain. The chicken's run is just a pile of muck. Poor things.

One of these things are not like the other.....

Speaking of chickens....we had a dozen or so brought to the butcher last week. Old layers. They make excellent rappie pie and fricot. We also got rid of Foghorn, since one of the Americanas is a rooster. We also put Mooocher in the freezer. Geez re-reading this sounds like we're massacring animals left,right and centre.

yes, she does look guilty

Tundra has been killing more chickens. I honestly don't know what to do. It's unfair to leave the hens locked up, but at the same time, it's unfair to them to let them get killed! What to do, what to do?

One of Tundra's victims

Since it's been raining constantly the last few months, the path to the barn is just wet, wet, wet. You need rubber boots to get there. So we got a load of gravel and put it down. Well it's better, but water is actually seaping through the hill. Not good. We're not sure if it's the well or not.

Nice dry path...for now

Christmas is fast approaching. I actually have the tree up! Yay for me!!

I thought I was going to have nice cabbage this fall.......

I guess not! The deer now probably have lots of gas. Good.

I interrupt this post for recent goat photos and one cute cat photo.

Febe chowing down! Hmmm and I wonder why they won't eat?

I'm a centerfold!

Stockings growing nicely!

Have a Blessed Day


  1. Weather has been warm here as well. But a nice warm not that 110 we had all summer!

    Looks like life is keeping you busy!

    I think I am going to put a Christmas Tree up this year.

  2. Do you usually not put up a tree?

  3. I didn't realizie it had been so wet in your neck of the woods.. At least it's not snowing :)

    Good for you that you've got the tree up already! We were thinking of doing it next weekend.. Always so excited to put it up and just about as excited to pack it all away again!

    oh my does Tundra look guilty! Don't know what to do about a dog that likes to eat your chickens for sport..

  4. The weather has been crazy here too. I love your animal photos. (Not the dead one)


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
