Good Morning

Sorry I didn't post last week. My back went 'out' last Sunday and I couldn't sit at the computer for more than ten minutes or so until Friday--and then I had to get ready for weekend company. I finally found some exercises that seem to help!

Not much is going on around here, other than animal training. The puppies are ultra wild in the morning when they come out of their puppy pen, and it takes a while to get them calmed down. Holly and Grady are especially excitable.
Jackie avoids them whenever possible:) She prefers helping my dad with his gardening.

Bella, a German Shepherd/Australian Shepherd, is only nine weeks old, but she calms down faster than the terriers and has already learned what NO means and she will come when called.

Indy spends a lot of time with interior design. He is especially fond of this fall display, though he never seems satisfied with his arrangements, LOL!

Have a great day!

Wednesday Morning

Good morning. We have rain today!! That's pretty exciting around here, as we haven't had much the last few months. I'm hoping it will give a good watering to my green beans and tomatoes. Do any of you grow Juliet tomatoes? They are small, almost like cherry tomatoes, but elongated like Romas. I think they have a great taste and they are about the hardiest tomatoes I've ever seen. They did well through the long, hot summer and are still producing.
We walked through our woods last week and I took this picture. This makes the prettiest waterfall when it has rained a lot. You can't tell so much from the picture, but the water flows down into a little pool. It needs a good cleaning out, as several trees and branches have fallen on it. It is on our 'list' of projects around here. And I have to say that it is a long list. Still, we are hoping to get this project done sometime this winter when all the snakes are napping.

Have a great day!

Catching Up

We've been busy around the cabin, this last month. Lots of writing going on, as well as stacking and stacking and stacking firewood:). We are on our LAST row for this winter--Hooray!!
I've been picking lots of peppers lately. I cook with some and chop and freeze the rest. Does anyone have any other ideas for them?

The puppies are growing. They have started losing their baby teeth, and we are finding them everywhere, LOL!

There is a pile of hay outside, ready for stuffing a scarecrow, but we haven't started on him, just yet. Last fall, we put him on the porch and all the cats, but one, were scared to death of him. The cat that wasn't afraid of him slept in his 'lap' all season.
Hope you are all having wonderful weather and enjoying the fall colors.
