Harvest Fair and Homestead Chores

Sarah with some friends...

We went on an hour drive through our rural back roads to visit the annual autumn fair in Danville on Sunday.
What a picture perfect October day with brilliant blue skies and temperatures nearing 60 degrees.

There were many, many artists and vendors and so many people.   What a nice change it was to be among crowds of people as that doesn't often happen up here in northern Vermont.

Today is another brilliant autumn day with the most amazing blue skies and after lunch we will be working around the homestead ~ finishing up the painting of the barn, painting the small chicken coops, weeding and mulching the strawberries, and putting the gardens to bed.

Warm wishes, Tonya
