Happy November To You, you do know what this means don't you? Just over three weeks until Thanksgiving and the day after is when all of our Christmas decorations go up. I hope you had a great Monday and that you are looking forward to another day.
Our Reggie had a bad night and I'm not sure if it is anything to be concerned about; this morning he isn't eating which means he won't take his pills because I coat them in peanut butter. We are having cold frosty mornings, today it is 34 degrees and we are expecting another snow storm tonight. I'm planning on making chicken soup for tonight and tomorrow night-yum, my mouth is watering already.
The above photo is a barn we saw on San Juan and I love it!!! Hubby and I have a fascination with barns and covered bridges. I may even enlarge this and frame it for my sewing room.
O.k. so I have a question for you, please realize that although I love country and prefer to live out in the wide open areas, I am not a farmer. Yesterday hubby and I had to go buy 4 bales of straw for our meat cow to lay on during the snow storms. We have been around horses quite alot when our girls were little, I know that you can have alfalfa hay or wheat hay, but what plant produces straw? Seriously. None of us could come up with the answer and I didn't take the time to google it. Our cow is getting bigger and is finally used to people and the kids. She especially likes Lilly the dog because she was raised around dogs. I have a hard time thinking about using her for meat but that is just because I'm so visual. I'm thinking an Alpaca would suit me-I could learn how to shear it, wash and card the wool, we could spin it and then my girls could use it for knitting. Much more to my liking.
Hope you have a delightful day. Noreen
