Gearing up for winter.
Let’s see…what’s been happening? Susie and Anna’s fleeces from the spring shearing got 2nd and 3rd place in the fleece competition at the Tunbridge World’s Fair. I spent a couple of glorious days spinning away in the sheep barn, telling anyone who would listen of the joys of handspinning. Beats working any day.
Then I was blessed with Bethel’s most awesome work crew…the Munyon/Reisterer/Smith clan all came over on Saturday. The boys replaced the posts on my pole barn, where the wood and the tractor and snowblower live, so it won’t collapse under the weight of all the snow. I’m hopeful that since that actually got done, we’ll have a low snow winter
We all took turns at the wood splitter, and split up all the rest of that butternut tree, along with some logs that Alex had generously brought over from clearing their house site. Most of that got stacked even. The great news…I think there’s more than enough to get thru this winter, so I won’t have to buy any more wood!
