It was so, so cold taking these few photos! But then I pulled on the hand-me-down Carhartt overalls my little sister just sent me and I was snug and warm doing chores afterward! Thanks, Rita!

There are always so many preparations to complete for winter -- raking, packing away lawn furniture and garden gear and hoses, and stockpiling hay (an expensive challenge this year), harvesting turkeys and the last of the garden, covering the cold-weather crops in the greenhouse, winterizing the beehives, to mention just a few of the tasks. This fall we had an additional ambitious project - constructing a more weather-proof enclosure around the fish gazebo and connecting it to the barn. Rog accomplished this over several weekends. I intend to write a more comprehensive post about the aquaponics and fish gazebo developments, but this photo gives you an idea of how cool it now looks!

Facebook. Must. Keep. Sewing. I am also making tote bags from colorful chicken feed and wild bird seed sacks.
Our life is so rich with family and friends, furry and feathered critters, farm and fun. We are practically bursting with gratitude!
