I can actually feel it in the air. And what could that be? Well, Fall of course!  My favorite time of the year. Bonfires, pumpkins, mums, and cool, crisp mornings. All of my favorite things.  This time of year  I almost get giddy just thinking about them.  Every weekend is jam packed full with festivals and harvest parties. In fact, Me and Hubby went to a festival this weekend. It was really nice! When I get better with taking pictures with my phone, I'll be putting pictures up of all the fun things we are getting into.

Speaking of that, a week from this Friday on Sept 28, I will be having our first "preppers bonfire."  I don't know what to call it. lol. I figure I'm inviting a few friends who like to prep for things whether it be cold weather or the end of the world.  We are just going to sit around a bonfire and have a Q & A. If someone has a question about something, like canning, raising goats, spinning wool, etc, hopefully there will be someone here that can answer their question. It's not going to be anything fancy. Heck, I don't even think it's going to be organized. lol.  I figure we could have a pot luck dinner and just visit with each other, talk about the coming winter weather and how to be prepared for it. I'm hoping to have one of these in the Spring too. Maybe that one will be a little organized. (doubt it.)  Some of the people planning on coming are bringing tents to stay in. I hope it's not too cold for them.  Should be fun! You all are invited to come too! Comment with your email or email me, and I'll give you directions on how to get here. Once again, I want to make sure that it is perfectly clear, this is not organized AT ALL!!!! Maybe down the road if more people start to show up, I would like to get demonstrations and maybe even vendors here. All depends on how big it gets. You never know, this may even be the last one. Who knows!!!! lol. 

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, organizer....hehehehehe, okay even I couldn't say that with a straight face. LOL!!!!

By George!!!!

I think I've got it!!!! I'm trying out new ways of getting my pictures on here. I never have my camera with me whenever something interesting happens to me. But, I ALWAYS have my cell phone. So, I've been trying different things and I think I've got it! They are not the best pictures, but they get the idea across. So, now onto this picture.

This picture was taken last night. IN MY HEN HOUSE!! If you look closely, you will see a chicken up in the top, right corner looking down at it. It was right under where they roost! I did end up killing it with a hatchet handle. (I'm ruff and tuff that way. lol) I picked it up to get it out of the hen house and how did my lovely hens repay me? By pooping on my back whenever I bent down to pick it up. Yep, you heard right. I got pooped on by one of my hens. Not to be gross but, it wasn't the nice "solid" poop that you sometimes get from caged chickens. OOOOOHHHHH NOOOOOO. It was the semi runny poop that you sometimes get from free range chickens. Where did it poop? The one inch of bare skin that was showing on my back when my shirt moved up as I bent over to pick up the possum, of course.  Eeeewwwww! I about puked.

Anyway, everything is back in order around the chicken house, and so far no more problems. I sooooo need to get another dog.

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, possum killer.

I'm trying out new ways of getting pictures on here. Just ignore my futile attempts. :)
