Laboring for Labor Day

The view from my front porch this afternoon.  Notice the leaves already falling from the tree.....wasn't I just complaining about winter a few days ago?  Now summer has already passed and we are moving into fall.  


We are using a couple of days this weekend to try and catch up with chores here at the farmette.  Busy kids and busy schedules leave a lot of things undone. 


Secret Agent Man is already at work on the woodpile. 


At least one person in this house took a moment to have a little fun.  The Deerslayer suited up and went to his tree stand today.  Even though a bit of rain moved in, he just couldn't help himself. 


I took some time to make a batch of these today.  Fantastic I tell you.

  2. Your trees look like mine. It's been soooo dry around here. THANKFULLY, we got some much needed rain today. Now, maybe I won't stir up a dust bowl when I go out my drive. :)

  9. Farmchick -- Was out on country roads today and noticed so many trees with their leaves turning or falling. Seems early to me -- but maybe its just that it has been so hot that it is difficult to believe that fall is really in the air. -- barbara

  10. Discovered your blog through one of your followers (thanks TexWisGirl).

    I can identify with being from the city and moving to the country. My wife and I will be moving shortly.

    Love the photo of the deer!

  11. Your trees look like mine, and we had a wet, rainy spring. Crazy, I tell you. Now we're waiting for tropical storm Lee rains. In WV.
    I have to wonder what crazy winter will bring.

  13. I have such mixed feelings about Fall--love the harvest, the cooler weather, but I'm sorry that winter approaches. That's a serious woodpile you've got there.

  15. We need to be doing things around the farm, too. Today just didn’t seem like a good day for us to work.

    WE’ll pay for this later.
    Love your firewood—that is one thing that is one our list.

    I love you blog. I’m joining.

  16. Wonder if I showed my husband this post if it would light a fire under him to start work on the wood pile?

  17. I love a neatly stacked wood pile. My husband does not see the point. *sigh* So of course, we do it his way. Haha!

    Yes, here we go into another season. Amazing how the time flies.

  21. Oh, autumn is my favorite time of year! Love everything about it; the chill in the air, the changing of leaves, baking, pumpkins, you name it!

  22. This is a very big woodpile! I hope it desn't mean a long hard winter is on its way?

    Good luck to Deerslayer!
