Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

My Farmgirl Badge is completed

Well here it is and I 'm proud to wear my shirt as farmgirl #309
It was fun to do and I love the Chicken buttons!
I sewed it on my levi shirt.

I think winter is knocking at our door

Brrrrrr We woke up to rain this morning and cold outside.
After taking a trip to town to get some 2x4s to have on hand ( to build the chicken coop & house ) when the sun comes out or when the rain stops.
Clay brought in the bale of straw that was at the end of the driveway with the Welcome autumn scarecrow, now disassembled an dstored the straw inthe garage. We will spread it under the apple& cherry trees and the berrry & rose bushes before the snow comes.
Snow could fall tonight inthe higher elevations it is forcasted. Hope 4200 is not what the weatherman predicted as higher elevations.

I am sure winter is coming sooner than later & I do not think I have enough warm clothing to make it to the winter days.
I'll have to drag out the winter duds & see. I did just buy a pair of "silkie underwear bottoms" and they are really nice. I wish I had warm hands right now and gloves are out of the question inside, I think.. The furnace is on and we have a nice pot of chili cooking in the slow cooker for dinner. I will make some cornbread to go with it and call it a nice pre-winter dinner.
I guess we will bundle up and stay inside for now.
