Slip and Buff

They want to come in!

These ladies are the most social chickens we have ever had.

Not only would slip come into the house if we let her, but she loves to assume this stooping position that lets us pet her and pick her up.

Too cute!

This years Pumpkins!

I'm not only proud of the knockout garden we had this year 

but I am ecstatic  about the pumpkins we grew. 

 Happy garden = Happy Family = Happy kids! I love my life!

Fire Starters

Do you realize how incredibly flammable dryer lint is?


So, use it to your advantage and harness the power! Shove it in some empty cardboard paper tubes or empty boxes from things like Jello.

That's a plain and simple and hugely sustainable way to make fire starters.

A basement full of wood

I have to say I am rather proud of our accomplishment.
See that front row there?

 That is all MY wood, aka Madeleine wood, because that was all dead lying or standing wood that SP would never have concerned himself with.

I am also a huge fan of the collective wood stacking we have done with our friends.

Abby and Steven are moving into a new old house this weekend. We were there last weekend helping stack their three cords of wood into their wood shed.

It really makes us happy to help others. It is my life's mission. 

The best past was even getting over to Beth's the next day to get her firewood in the right place. Yes the right place is on the other side of the house and NOT at the opening of her driveway.
Because really, how could this picture NOT make you happy!?

A fair tally would be that the 6 of us stacked 10 cords of woods this season. That is quite the accomplishment if you ask me!

I love these people and am happy they are in my life, and proud to call them friends!
