November Madness

Good Morning. It is a frosty morning here on the farm. The horses all have white on their whiskers as they eat away out in the paddock.
I must apologize first for not blogging more. It seems like to get time to sit and blog is almost impossible lately.
I will give you once again a run down on what has been happening here in our neck of the woods.
First things first Mom is recovering very well. She is working hard in the hospital on her physiotherapy  and is coming along great. She has no more oxygen hooked up to her and she is eating very well. Every day is a big change.
Again I want to Thank everyone who has had us in their prayers for my Mom and my Family. It means so much to us.
We celebrated Jayne's 11 Birthday on  November 18th. We had a cake and just a little family togetherness.

I can't believe it is almost Christmas. The time goes by so fast. I usually have my tree up and the house decorated by now, but nope nothing. This is this reason for a few reasons.
First we are getting ready to bust out the wall to the other side as our new living room is almost complete,and we are waiting to put our tree up over there. We also want to put another small primitive one up in the new dining room. So thus is the main reason why no tree or decor yet.
Second with running to the hospital every day and opening the shop three times a week and teaching 2 classes a week I was not able to fit anything else in.
And finally we have been running here from early morning to late night with our first big snow fall last Wednesday there was so much to pick up and put away and to get ready for winter. Water bowls had to be turned on, electric fences taken down. Hoses put away, and so much more with the joys of the cold months ahead.
The big news is we are almost ready to move into the new side. I am so excited. Friday we should be ready to BUST the wall down. YEPPEE!
Justin has been working with both HB and my Dad putting the rest of the fire wood for both homes. The girls have been busy trying to rearrange their rooms for Christmas and helping clean up the yard for Winter.
The shop has been doing great. I sold almost all my wool,and yarn. I am teaching 2 classes a week but will stop next week till after the Christmas break.
We went to the city on Friday as HB was off and we took the weeones out of school for the day. We had a sort of Christmas shopping,a little us shopping and some Birthday money shopping. We ate out and had nothing  good for us and enjoyed every moment of our day together as a family.

Once again this year I have decided with the help of the weeones I want to being our 25 days of Christmas blog posts.
We will begin on Thursday with 25 posts of Christmas baking, crafts, and holiday decor for our home. I hope you all join and do the same. (making sure that I know as I can't wait to see what your families come up with.
Well that's it for today, I wish you all a great day and see you all tomorrow.


  1. I am so glad that you posted. I have been praying for you. It is exciting to hear that your mom is doing well. How exciting to have your addition almost ready. I can't wait to see pictures. You have been busy. I wish I could stop by and visit your shop.

    Have a wonderful day and stay warm.


  2. Thank you Cheryl for your comment. I wish you could stop by as well. Have a wonderful day with your family.

  3. I am glad to hear that your mother is coming along nicely. Happy 11th birthday to Jill. How exciting to almost be finished! I would want to wait to put my tree up in there too. :)

    P.S. Our Christmas tree is a white pine. The Christmas tree farm we visit for our tree also has blue spruces, but they are more expensive and they make our eyes itchy and watery for a few days.

    I hope you had a great day.
