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!!!!

Fall and spring are my favorite times from an artist point of view, just good atmosphere for photos. I have a place for bon fires this year so I may have to follow your lead! Don't forget the apple cider.

Hey you know if we were closer we'd be there, in a heartbeat! We'd be fine, the ole walltent and wood stove would keep us warm :o)

I agree with Carolyn, why do you all have to be so far away, it's like living in MT you live on another planet, Oh! wait a minute that is why we live here, *wink*, LOL!!!!

I'll be there in spirit and I'll hold it up in our prayers too. Praying you all share a wealth of information and that it grows into a HUGE event each year, sort of like a rendevous(sp?)

I`m a big fan of fall myself!

Peacemom said...

wish I was closer, your bonfire idea sounds fun...if I knew enough folks here that cared about it, I might have one myself!

Nothing like autumn to get the blood flowing, huh? Have a fun bonfire!! ~Vonnie, NH
