Well , it is beginning to feel alot like Christmas here on our little homestead. I wish you all wonderful greetings this Holiday sesaon! My decorations were all up on time this year..and we've had several get togethers with friends and family this past month. Its been a flurry of activity , but alot of fun!
My Son, Weston is home for a few weeks and both Chris and I are enjoying his company and his great since of humor! It will seem like he is home only a few weeks and he'll be back to school to finish up his last semester at Colgate . He'll be graduating this year, but he's hoping to continue on to grad school next fall. He is planning on continuing in plant biology .
We have been very lucky this year as far as the weather goes. It has been a fair weather fall and winter at least December has been quite nice as well. This weather is welcome as I was a bit behind on getting my gardens ready for winter and getting the areas around the house and barn all tidied up. The weather also cooperated when it came to us getting the house and the kennel and barn decorated for the holiday season. We are pretty reserved when we decorate ..some white lights little candles in each window and a few boughs and of course a wreath or four. Its something about pine boughs & greenery , that makes the little place look so festive .
Some new additions to the farm are Ginger and Jazzman, our two new elder statesman and woman donkeys . They are great folks and we are thrilled to have these two enjoy their retirement years with us .
Happy New Year from us ,
Chris , Eileen and Weston and all the animals !
