I have an order for more tape measures so I made these 3.

My only finishes for this month so far.  I have been under the weather again with no MoJo to do much of anything.

The barn site is ready and the barn is ordered.  Not sure what date it will come yet.  Eric starting to fill the framework with limestone.

Preparing to put in a New Storage Barn

We have decided to put a new storage barn on our property.  We are using one that is old and not on our land right now.  That land maybe going up for sale so we need to get this done quick.  This is the lot from out front.

Eric's truck and trailer with tractor.

After taking down a few trees he is leveling the place the barn will go.  There was a lot of thick concrete that had to be broken up and moved out of the way.  It will be put back in the hole before it is filled with gravel.This is all back behind the big tree in the first picture.

Eric and hubby working the spot for the barn.

Putting in the corner stakes so  we know where to frame it up.

Fire wood for Terry.  There was 3 loads of brush to haul away.

Killed Herman

I spent the day making 6 batches of Herman (Friendship Bread).  I now have 55 small loaves and 13 reg. loaves in the freezer.  That is my Christmas baking.  So glad that is finished. Sorry no new picture but this is some of what I baked.

Friday in Amish Country

Friday I had to get blood work done so afterwards we decided to go for a ride south.  We ended up in Amish country but did not stop to shop because I had no extra money.  Loved the colors on the trees and sites of that area. Lots of pictures.  Click the picture for a better view.

This is how they harvest their corn stalks.  They bring them to the barn later.

I have never seen them use a light colored or white horse to pull their buggies.  It was a first for us.

This is up at top of the hill in Fredricksburg.

New Start and Bread Report

I started a new sit down project.  It is a lap afghan for me.  I loved all the colors I made Terry's afghan from so I am starting with her leftovers.  I will need to get more yarn as I go along.  Here is my start.

 Bread report is that the 3rd baking of my Christmas breads is in the freezer.

Here are 2 pictures of the start of the leaves changing colors.  It is that time of year.
