Well, finishing up our winter prep last weekend was just in time…we got our first real snow this last week, and we got down to the teens one night. Brrrr.
It wasn’t a significant snow, just a dusting that melted off before lunchtime. But it was snow, and it was fun to see our first snow at the new farm. This was SO much later than we are used to getting snow. Our previous homestead, up in the Rockies has already had several snows this year and much colder weather. We have been enjoying the longer fall and warmer weather here, especially as we scurried to get projects done. The long-time locals tell us this has been unseasonably warm and that this is almost a record breaking late-in-the-season date for the first snow.
Holiday Craft Fair
About 6 weeks ago, Sunshine and Little Miss were invited to participate in a holiday craft fair. It was the first time this specific craft fair was going to take place so we were unsure about how well it would go. But they decided to take the plunge and see. They spent weeks working on making items for their table. Everything turned out beautifully, and they were very excited when the day finally arrived.
It went very well and they pretty much sold out of all they had made!
It also got us all into the holiday mood, so we are pretty excited to be celebrating Thanksgiving this week, and then decorating for Christmas this next coming weekend.
I know this post didn’t include any homestead livestock or kitchen to speak of…I will update on all that next week.
