I can't believe how fast this year is flying. There is so much work I want to do and it seems as if there just aren't enough hours in the day to get it all done. Today, I worked in the front yard raking leaves. I managed to get half of it raked into piles, and some of it put on the compost pile, but now it is supposed to rain-snow tomorrow and I don't know if I'll get back to it. At least the chickens had fun scratching the ground behind me.
The other day Tom took me for a walk in the woods to show me where he found another chaga growing, and I noticed then how many broken tree branches there were laying around. I told him all we need to do for firewood next year is drag out the fallen wood. I was surprised how much damage an early snow could cause when the trees still had their leaves.
Tonight Lara, Ed and I finished up the Halloween candy and our Harry Potter Butter Beer -- 2 liters of good cream soda with 1 cup of Butterscotch Schnaps. While we don't get any trick-or-treaters out here in the woods, we always have some Halloween fun.
Well, I think I'll hit the sack early tonight. Talk to you soon!
