Fall leaves and fields

fields ready for harvest
Fall has come.  The fields are being harvested, the ducks are beginning to lay eggs and the leaves are falling quickly.  I have taken a million pictures it seems and now I am sharing some with you.  I hope your holiday season, which is rapidly approaching, is full of joy, family, and many new memories.

Sending love and sweet fall kisses from the farm.

Fall days

Life has been quiet here on the farm.  The cows are gone, the fields are drying and waiting for the tractors to come and begin the harvest.  The nights are colder and the furnace has been turned on for the first time this week.

The ducks and geese have been growing fat and sassy and we soon will process the last of them before winter sets in.  I have been taking my camera with me in the morning when I go to let them out in the morning.  I love how the sun comes up and makes the world seem full of possibilities.

I have been taking a lot of pictures as usual, but with teaching and other responsibilities I have been remiss in posting them for you.

I hope as the weather turns colder you will find many blessings as we turn toward the holiday season.
Sending love and chilly kisses from the farm.
