The New Rooster

I have a new addition to the chicken pen, a male rooster given to me by an employee at the feed store that I go to. He has been named Brewster. He is adjusting with the ladies and they are enjoying this nice weather..

The "Winter Solstice"

The winter solstice came last night but you would not know it here at my place. The temperature here has been up in the 70s all week and today got close to 80. Actually the month of December has been warmer than usual all month, makes me wonder what next year might be like..

Garden News

The last of the tomatoes this year have come in from the garden, that we be it till next year. I still have large carrots in the garden and I hope to pull them through the rest of the year. What a year for the garden, hope next year will be as good.

Last of the tomatoes this year

 Huge carrot plants are all that is left

More of My Neighbor

I went for a walk today on my property today and after reaching the creek on the west side I noticed what this idiot has been doing. I will let the photos say it all. With cutting down all the trees, he has left the hill on his side vulnerable to erosion and flooding in addition to how it looks without the trees.

Last Festival of the Year

I got up at 4:30 AM Saturday morning to drive out to the last festival of the year in Wimberley, TX. Temperature there was at 36 F and yes that was cold, but as the day went on it warmed up into the 60s with sunny skies. Got a nice corner booth in the center of three walking trails for better visability and to help my friends find me. Lots of people were there in a buying mood for the season and my sales of my craft were good, over $1100 for the day. Now to take a break for a couple months before I start looking at creative energies again for next spring..

Now I know where all the bird food is going...

So I put out some corn, and the culprits came back after eating all the bird food last night.
