Autumn Harvest

If you could harvest "sweet" - this is what it would look like.
Shadow & Whisper in the hayloft.

And Pumpkin too!

If you had to describe Autumn in three words
 -- what would they be?

Chippewa, like the river...

This morning we awoke to this magnificent sunrise -- pink over the barn. 
It was glorious.
This morning we awoke to one less kitty waiting at the barn door. 
It was heartbreaking.

Chippewa - like the river.
Coming home.
Always running home.
Your barn waits - home.
This morning under pink...it was you.
Chippewa - like the river.

I make no apologies for falling madly, deeply,
head over heals in love with my animals. 
When no one else cares, they do.
When no one else will listen, they will.
As we buried our little Chippewa this morning,
Ralphie watched from his goat bridge.
He will miss him too.

Chippewa - like the river...

Just a peak - Barn Sale 2010

Just a peak....just a peak....
Still getting ready for the Barn Sale.
Just a peak at one little area of one BIG hay loft.
Just a peak.
Glad the lights were low....just a peak.

Just a peak...new kitty babies - a gift last weekend.
Marmalade, Chestnut, Cinnamon, Tinsel, Clover?
Still deciding upon names.

Getting "Pumpkined Up"!

Finally -- I am getting that autumn feeling...
beginning to pumpkin things up around here!

Then there is that little pumpkin patch behind the barn!

And, of course, there is a little Pumpkin in the barn!

Have you put out any autumn decorations yet?

Where are you?

Quiet.  Empty. 
Where are you?

The past few weeks have felt very solitary. 
Dave reminds me that it is back to school, end of summer -- but it feels very quiet, too quiet.

Where are you?

Wisdom begins with wonder.

My friend, Jani, reminded me of these words from Socrates: 
"Wisdom begins with wonder". 

Here is what I have learned along my journey at Meadowview Farm: 
  • Sparrows like blue bird houses too. 
  • Milk paint was made to last.
  • Goats are like dogs - only with smaller droppings.
  • Woodchucks & Pocket Gophers are the bane of all existence.
  • Cottonwood trees get a bum rap.
  • "Catch & Release" just doesn't work for Japanese Beetles or Crickets.
  • Storms do announce themselves.
  • Farmers are indeed the hardest working people & the best neighbors.
  • It is good to know someone with a bobcat or a tractor.
  • Country music has a heart.
  • Humility is a good character trait....as is personal responsibility & kindness.  They make my top 10 list.
  • You can herd cats.

What have you learned along your journey?? 
Do share....

Blue Birds

Blue Bird Dishes
Sweet little specials I tuck throughout my home.

They make me smile....

Oops...had to add this picture. 
I am adding daily to the barn for the sale,
and found these from a recent buying trip. 
Have never seen Blue Bird tins -- these are officially "adopted" by me!

What is your favorite collectible of the moment?
