Fall on the Farm

Fall is upon us and the beautiful Autumn leaves are so pretty to look at but it also reminds me that winter is not far away. It seems as Denver is getting snow today and weather forecasters are saying a winter storm. I do not look forward to those days and I do not look forward to cold, snowy days except for the opportunity to build a fire in the new wood stove that we purchased last week to replace the one that we had.

The stove that we had done a wonderful job of heating the front of the home and it was such a blessing last winter in helping to keep the heat bills under control. However, it was not big enough to heat the entire home and we knew that it would be nicer to have a larger one that would heat the entire house. The new one will do just that.

We live in a wooded area and so we do not have to buy wood, which is an added blessing for us. I am thankful that God gives us the natural resources to heat our home without having to pay the outrageous prices that the electric and gas companies charge in the winter. My husband does need a new chainsaw and I would like to buy him one for Christmas but I am not sure that I will be able too. I am hoping that my writing at Triond and Associated Content will help pay for it, but I certainly need more views before that will happen.

Fall brings many jobs to the farm and in preparing the animals and homestead for winter we are reminded just how thankful we are for where we are in life. My husband will leave next week for two weeks for work out of state and the income from that will be enough to allow us to have a nice Christmas and not add a lot of added stress to us. He will also be able to leave again in January to aid us in making ends meet during the worst of the winter season. Isn't God Great?

The weather is perfect for riding and I am sure that we will do some more next week as it is supposed to be up in the high 60's most of the week. A trail ride with the leaves in full color will be just the perfect photo opportunity and the perfect way to enjoy the rest of this season as we quickly approach the one season of the year that I dislike the most- winter!

I hope that all of the home schoolers out there have a chance to enjoy the fall weather and colors and possibly enjoy a field trip to take advantage of the weather we will soon be wishing for.
