Mid-Summer picture of our farm

     Today and tomorrow we will be enjoying some unseasonable weather. They say temperatures up into the sixties! I hope to complete the last remaining “good” weather jobs. The weatherman says rain and snow the end of the week …. Yep…Snow…Here comes Winter!

     This morning frost and light fog cover the farm. It wasn’t long ago when heat and drought were the order of the day. Our drought is over, the ponds and creeks are full and soil moisture has returned to normal levels. Our harvest is complete and many nearby farmers are closing in on the last few acres of their 2012 harvest. It is a good feeling.

     We are sending a few chickens to freezer camp, gathering in a little more firewood for my sons and just putting equipment under cover. The wet snow will remind me of all the things that I have forgotten, but I think we are in pretty good shape. We have much to be thankful for this year as always.

     Tomorrow we will pause and reflect on the many blessings we have been given. The stores will come alive with Christmas advertizing and sales.  Many sportsmen will gather to watch football and plan their deer hunting trip…all of these things are signs that winter is surely here.
