Now we see the fall array of colors daily. My very favorite thing is to drive down the road with trees of all the colors all along the sides and leaves lining the road...ahhhh.
Part of this season for us is also preparing for the colder months...putting things by as they used to say back in the day.
As a single mama this can cause some anxiety as I am the only adult ensuring the safety and warmth of my children --along with them helping. God has shown over and over again that He is in this with me though.
This summer we brought our wood from a half hour away in the van...every Saturday morning. We sure are thankful we did now!
(while we were still filling the woodshed)We all know that even when a body is warm we still need to eat! We do and our animals do too...sooo, this year was our first year filling the barn up with hay.
I love going out to the barn and smelling the hay!
We have such great neighbors here. The other day one stopped by to tell us that there is a corn field to go picking in....we hopped in the van and were off! the first batch of blanching and freezing is done = 45 ears. There is still more to do and we blessed the neighbors with some too.I love being able to surprise others with unexpected gifts...even if it is a vegetable!
Putting things by sure is a lot of work, but what a pay off!
