Life has been so very full that I haven't taken the time to be online over the last several days except checking on our business.
Nothing all that exciting but just the regular kind of things that make up our daily living.
One small homesteading related thing I did was when I cleaned the chicken coop the other day, I started a compost pile with the litter inside the chicken's fenced in area. I got the idea after listening/watching this great talk by Mark Shephard. He is the author of a new book, Restoration Agriculture, and he has some real neat ideas. I love learning of something new that makes life easier while at the same time makes better use of resources. Now with our compost pile with the chickens, they will turn it over and benefit from the insects and worms.
Business is getting busier as the holidays approach. I am working hard on keeping focused on the task that is right before me and trying not to get overwhelmed.
Appreciative that said business made it possible to take time out to be useful to a family that needed help.
Emmy is going through a very needy time and if I don't pay close enough attention she might have all the toy baskets dumped out within a few seconds. Working on figuring out what she is really needing.
The weather has changed dramatically here. Today it is in the 20s with a real fierce wind and snow. Abraham keeps telling me it is winter and although I want to correct him that the winter solstice is still over a month away, I don't. He is probably right that winter has arrived.
