On another note, this summer provided Chris with a bumper crop of pumpkins and we had a delightful time decorating the little homestead for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. Our chickens and sheep were happy recipients of the balance of the fruits.
As fall cooled and then frosted Thanksgiving was just around the corner & this year Thanksgiving feast and the following weekend was a wonderful time, as my family came to celebrate with Chris and I . It was good to have them here for even just a bit. I have begun to decorate for the Christmas season. It is one of my favorite times of year. I am sitting today with a cup of freshly made mulled cider, making some ornaments for a nearby shop. Cider hits the spot sometimes on a cold day such as this... Wishing you all a peaceful, happy holiday season !
