Winter has Arrived

It was a beautiful, 7*and sunny, winter morning yesterday as I made my way to the barn.
I am glad for the water hydrant near this end of the barn.
I am wondering if any birds will use the house for shelter this winter? It is located at the back property line near the barn
Hen houses up closer to the house....
I thought the hens might like to celebrate Christmas with me!
If I don't get back before Dec 25th,
Merry Christmas to you all !

Am I Ever going to Blog Again?

That was a question posed to me recently.
My answer to that is, "I intend to". In fact I intended to several months ago. Seems time gets away, with all that has been going on here.
As well as the different outside projects going on, there is also the increasing issue of arthritis pain I have been dealing with, and searching for ways to alleviate the pain through natural means. For the last couple months I have been cutting down on all foods with wheat flour (except my occasional loaf of home-made sourdough bread) and all known products with added sugar. I do use honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar in limited quantities. But more about this later...
My hens are doing well, as are the turkeys, rabbits and goats. I will hopefully start updating soon. Thanks for your interest!
