Saturday's Start

Been awake since 4 a.m.

Two loaves of sourdough bread rising.  Tomatoes put up (canned) and waiting on the counter to go to the basement for storage.  Hoping for another glorious day of autumn weather while I enjoy the company of two five year old boys later today (my youngest grandson and his very best buddy!).  My husband's 50th class reunion tonight.  Would like to start prepping living room walls for repainting later in the week.

Looking forward to a trip to the Northern Michigan Lamb and Wool Festival tomorrow (if all goes well today, LOL!)  You wouldn't think it could be so difficult to make a trip like that from here, would you?  Three more fleeces need to be skirted today if I want to make that trip.  That's the stipulation I've put out there for myself ;)

Pepsi ~ A Fresh Face at the farm

There's a new face at the farm ~ can you guess who or what?
She't tall (over five and a half feet just to the top of her shoulder!); she's dark (black, in fact) and beautiful.  She stands firmly on four good feet.  A Percheron draft horse mare named Pepsi.
I knew there was a reason I wanted Bill to hang on to that last set of harness and the cart!

First Of September

Our first sunset of September, and it was a beauty!
