I’m back. Slept off and on yesterday and even slept in really late this morning. I got up at 6:30, with everyone else up and doing stuff.
I feel good.
I think I just got really tired from doing our things here and then running down to our oldest daughter’s place (only 2 miles away) to feed her fire and watch over her animals. She only heats with a wood stove so I had to be extremely diligent to keep the fire going so her pipes wouldn’t freeze all through the day and night.
She is back home now so everything will mellow out until our other daughter and her family heads to Nebraska for Thanksgiving on Wednesday. They heat with wood also, but they have a backup propane system. I will just have all their animals to take care of, which won’t be as exhausting.
Terry and I and the dogs all went around the place yesterday checking on the fences. It’s getting close to pheasant hunting season, which means people will cut, break down, and destroy fences to get to the birds. Everything is posted, not because we are against hunters, but because we are against property damage. It works most of the time.
These lovely birds are back. I tell them all of the time they are most welcome to land on our place…we are a no hunting zone. Although, I don’t think there is a Sand-hill Crane season I know there is a Canada Goose season, of which they will be safe here!
