Sunday morning

Well today is suppose to be a day of rest, but when you have to race the weather to get stuff done there is no day of rest. Today we hope to get more fire wood split and stacked in the wood shed before the supposed rain starts.
Putting the stall and corral on hold for now. Dancer will be headed to the fair grounds in the morning to start her harness training. She will be there for a month approximately. This will give us time to get her new home finished before she returns. We have accomplished a lot, as you can see in the previous posts from Don. I will be taking more pictures of what we have done and add them later. I introduced her to her new home yesterday. She wasn't to excited at first, but I think she will take to it later when the rains really start.
I can say that homesteading is a full time job. There is always something that needs to be done, whether inside the house or outside. I still have tomatoes that are ripe on the vine and need canning, and cucumbers that need to be picked. I want to see how long the cucumbers will last in side the greenhouse. This is the first winter we have had the greenhouse and it is an experiment in progress. Will see what can be grown this winter for fresh veges.
The day is waisting, need to get started with chores. Going to take Dancer for a walk before I really get started.
