I'm not even going to try and come up with an excuse as to why I haven't blogged since July. I'm lazy.
Today should have been spent prepping for hurricane Sandy. There is much to be picked up, tucked away, brought in and battened down. Last year when Irene came up the coast we implemented the same pick up routine and it worked well...but Irene is a much different storm than Sandy. Sandy is all about wind, which Irene lacked. I totally expect to be without power and phone for a few days, and I'm hoping the temps stay above freezing...because we bought the only house in northern VT WITHOUT any back up heat. Oh, sweet bun baker oven, I will have you one day, I promise! Any hoodles....today was only successful in getting grain and moving a pig. I baked homemade hot pockets, but I'll have to remake some as they children seem to eat them as quickly as I bake them. They are a convenience food that they can eat cold so I don't have to worry about figuring out how to cook (although we do have a camping stove) while the power is out. Tomorrow is going to have to be the day that EVERYTHING gets accomplished. The list is long. Wish us luck.
Now...our summer in pictures:
We have 6 piglets leaving the farm next weekend as well. These guys are rather rotund for some reason..Oh..maybe because they're PIGS! LOL
Thats about it. The summer flew by, I miss the sun....although I do enjoy having the house to myself during the week. I'm amazed at how clean it stays.
Ill check in again after the hurricane/frankenstorm/tropical snowstorm is done having its way with us.
