Before prepping for winter...

The mornings are getting colder and colder and scraping the frost off my windows is making me late to work. My car needs to go in the garage but the bay is full. We have a lot of work to do this weekend!


3.5 cords of wood, thrown and stacked, and man do I feel it!

Well SP already got a start on it but I was at work (really wish I took the picture when I thought of it a month ago)

Hydraulic wood splitters are fun!

What a productive weekend we had splitting the rest of the wood.
Thanks to our friend Bruce (in blue for his help).
Bruce is the friend that brings all the fireworks to our house.
 Hi Bruce!

I never knew industrial sized power tools could be so fun! Can we do it again please?

Here's a seldom seen photo of prematurely grey me!

It's been a busy season.

 I don't know if I have blogged about it or not yet, but we officially went crazy this spring and summer and raised pigs. Yup - two big old girls named Hamlet and Kevin. Yes they were both girls with men's names. Hamlet seems clear enough that you can figure it out, but Kevin she was the special one. Kevin Bacon is now in our freezer and she was some pig! Here's a little photo essay of their time here on our homestead.

Kevin is home and in the freezer

That's a lot of pork!!

Teaching him how to gnaw on a bone.
Good boy!

Bring it on Winter! We are ready!

Red Neck I spy

This is embarrassing.

Spring has sprung

Three wonderful signs of spring: the hammock is hung, the buds are bursting, and SP is tilling the garden. I love Tillulah our tiller. Go check her out at this link. She's a beauty and my first Mother's Day presents after we moved to Maine.

While I was away...

SP did play! (At least in the garage!)
Yea for him - he's been wanting a work bench for a long time!
