Peaceful existence

I think we have a rather peaceful existence here on the homestead. It is nice to be home this time of year and relax. That is about what I have done today. Just did the general pick up and straighten up here. Rodger and Jason had to make a trip to Lowes to pick up some heaters and I stayed home. Its days like that where I can just do as I please and nap if I want or what ever. They got back and then went to the shop to get some lumber cut to size to build a box around our water pump and get it insulated for winter. I think they also need to do the pump box at Jason's house as well. Things to do while we have some really nice weather.
We have been trying to locate a small covered trailer of some sort to use to haul a hog home in and haven't had any luck as of yet. So we decided this evening to just build a set of racks for Jason's pick-up and use it to get Petunia home. The next several weekends are full of plans. So this means we must go get Petunia next weekend. So that's where Jason and I will head off to. The weekend after that is chicken butchering, then the next 2 will be for deer hunting, then Rob and Amoy will be home for Thanksgiving. Rob called today and he said they took a lil drive around the area where they live just exploring and the mountains were so beautiful and they have snow already. I did remember to tell them they could keep it out there. It is pretty to look at tho.

Rob also said they had already had several days of rain and was expecting more this week. I am not looking forward to winter.
Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

I agree. He can keep the snow. Although, I don't think I could live somewhere that didn't have seasons.
