Today was a bit of a rain day but we were better off than the places that got snow. So early for bad weather.
Tonight the boys fenced the last of the of the steel fence that we will use to separate the Billy goat ~ Man oh Man he is one smelly little goat. They are a mixed breed that we bought local here so they won't be too big of a goat. I would like to get them a bit tamer so they are easier to handle and so that I can have a bit more control over them.

It is a beautiful fall here on the farm it is just starting but it is promising to be awesome

First day back to school or at least it should be it is perfect weather dreary, wet and gray outside. The teachers have been on strike since June and the two sides still can't get their selves together. Then once they figure it out they think the kids can bounce back and jump in ~ oh they all say it is for the kids I truly believe at this time of the strike they are not thinking of the kids.
I have been using  a rototiller my sister and her husband have been letting me use. It is hard work and totally messes with my neck but I did manage to get the herb garden redone with the herbs replanted and sitting in the soil with a nice rain on them. I had let this garden go during the course of getting ready for the wedding.
This last weekend I used the time to visit with my kids our youngest daughter was home for a few days so I did a quick road trip with two of our girls it was fun to spend the time together. Our middle son we have hardly seen him he has been away all summer fighting forest fires the only time was when he was home for his three day break in between.
It is time to head to the auction one more time this year to sell off some ducks, rabbits a few turkey and a couple of lambs. Now it is getting hard to find the time to schedule a trip with hockey starting, hockey has a way of sucking the life out of life.
Our kitten have all gone to their new homes they were special kitties they were born on the full moon and on the night of our daughters wedding. Now as soon as I can afford to take Studio to the vet I will get her spayed.
Beautiful day on the farm  summer is winding down

It has been a busy time here on the farm and it is so crazy to think it is the end of August.
summer flew by
We have had a few fun weekends visiting once to the lake to see family. We have headed of on little day trips on the weekends to visit our daughter. Our kids that are away have been home to visit so I guess that is why time is flying by.

It is a funny thing even with our intense heat I can still feel fall creeping in. The hay is being brought in and my mind has been drifting towards ahh we need to get fire wood!! We also need to pull off one more auction trip before the summer grass goes.
School is two weeks away and that is plain crazy the time has flown by even with the added days of the teachers strike I feel like I missed summer.
Today I canned peaches and only one jar sealed hmm so over it so much work for it not to turn out. I was going to do more but no point I will have to keep these in the fridge and I will be running out of room.
