Friday Follow-Up

This week:

-- I kept telling hubby how much Cracker looks like an anatolian shepherd, a breed of livestock guardian dog. Then I discovered that the American mastiff was developed from the anatolian shepherd.

-- Our autumn color peaked for two days, then the leaves began to turn brown. With a howling wind several days this week, a lot of them gave up and fell to the ground. The barnyard is carpeted with a layer of brown oak leaves today.

-- I'm thankful to have been able to spend another day this week with our son. We discovered a beautiful place to take photos in a park in town. I'm working on a composite family photo, even though our family is spread out across four states.

-- Phoenix grew this week! She was shorter than Firefly, but has grown at least a couple of inches suddenly and is taller than Firefly again. The goats and the horses have grown out their winter coats and are quite fuzzy; Juliet's thick white Great Pyrenees coat is the envy of any dog right now - gorgeous!

-- I've cleaned out the container garden of its frost-blackened vines and plants, and pruned the rosebush. The wind made a mess of the tarps covering the hay bales, so I redid that as best I can. I need a new tarp; the current ones are shredded.
