Good News, Frosty Morning, and Blessed Routine !

I HAVE to start this off with some EXCELLENT news ! After a tense few days, Melissa's mom is home from the hospital and is moving well along the road to recovery ! We are all pretty proud to see her back home again, and we hope this is the last trip to the hospital for anyone via the ER for a very long while !

Of course, the farm routine continued throughout the ordeal, and with the exception of our respective blogs which have been a little reduced in volume of late, nothing missed a beat. That said, it's sure nice to be able to get back to the day to day worries of running a business.

We woke up this morning to our first real freeze of the season. Some of the low spots had a little white frost on the grass on the morning of Oct 30, but we never officially recorded a 32 degree temperature until earlier today. The trees that didn't drop their leaves due to the drought are beginning to show some good colour and after a cool day today we are looking forward to a week in the upper 60's and low 70's which is pretty easy weather to take in the middle of November !

Hope all of you are enjoying an excellent weekend !

Great news. I'd been wonder and checking in to read an update. We've had a few heavy frosts here...time to knock down the wasp nests! (we have had a dusting of snow too, along with a constant show of white shit on the mountain ranges surrounding. Lol!) enjoy your beautiful weather!

Glad Melissa's mom is doing better! We've had a few nights in the 20s this week and things are very pretty - I love this time of year - the light is lovely. Now if it just wouldn't get any colder/windier . . .

Thank goodness! Best wishes to her for a speedy and full recovery!

We had unreal winds (2 days of sustained 30 mph with gusts to 50) that put an early finish to out fall colors. We are having unprecedented warm temps and enjoying every second.
