It is a good day to be a chicken, and not a turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Here it is November ...

… and I don't think I have done a single blog. It is not that we are not doing anything, but they are the usual end-of-season jobs that are just not glamorous or fun, like cleaning out the tack room, weeding, keeping up with the young hens and Emma's sisters who went home yesterday.

It has been mild still, but last week we went from short sleeves and shorts to long pants. Funny to go shopping in Tucson and see that the snowbirds have arrived: they are in sumer clothes and, compared to the rest of the country, this is warmish, sunny weather.

This morning a system came in with quite a bit of wind, clouds and some moisture that lasted all of 5 seconds, literally.

In spite of the weather I am working to get my head in holiday mood.
