Well, Thanksgiving is done and over with. The kiddos went back to school today and we went back to our normal routine. Which by the way, is not normal. I always dread the kids going back to school because that’s my good help. Earl and I were on our own again this morning. Mud, mud and more mud! It’s everywhere. We’ve had over 4 inches of rain in the last 4 days. The sun hasn’t shone in days and the whole farm looks like a mud bomb exploded.

      Candace is our great white hunter. She’s got a trail cam set up and a tree stand and loves to watch for deer. She goes nuts when she sees a big buck. moms phone pics 417     This is her ready for the big kill. Not sure what I’m going to do with a deer. I have a freezer full of beef. The boys don’t really care much about deer hunting and always accuse her of just skipping out on chores. Makes for many interesting arguments. The boys on the other hand like to act out their super heroes. Their favorite is “Thor” and first runner-up is “Iron Man”. They made hammers and the whole bit.

     When it’s cold weather season it’s always so nice to finally get chores done and head for a nice, cozy, warm house. I like my coffee and Earl is stuck on hot cider. He tasted some a while back and decided that it’s pretty tasty. He went to the store today to get some more and went a little nuts. He bought 3 boxes of the stuff. I sure hope he doesn’t get tired of it before it’s gone because he’s the only one that drinks it. He’s a man of extremes. Another reason my life is never, ever boring. It’s getting late and time to hit the hay so I’m signing off with a few cow pictures.

Like she spent hours fixing it. So long……..Carol
