Weekend and Happy Halloween


We are spending more time around the pellet stove than we had thought we would at this time of the year.  Our first snow was last Thursday.  We hadn't even had a frost yet, although that came Thursday night into Friday.  Our second snow was Saturday into Sunday.  Like so many others, we awoke to a light coating of snow on the ground.  We were very fortunate that we didn't receive the 12+ inches so many others did.  Thank you Mother Nature, we are glad you spared us.

I always have a laundry list of things I think I'll accomplish over the weekend.  Before I know it the two days have come to an end and only half of my checklist has checks beside it.  In my ongoing efforts to make so much of our food from scratch as well as garden, blog, craft and create I find myself running out of time quickly.  I think I need to organize my weekends better.  This sounds like a perfect New Year's resolution!

So, the weekend is over and suddenly I'm realizing it's Halloween.  We had a little dress up party of our own.  The chickens and the cats refused to participate as did the adults, but the dogs allowed me to entertain myself.  Our theme?  Backyard Farms.

What does every backyard farm need?


a bee.........



and a chicken.

If you think you are reading absolute disgust and upset on their faces you are correct.
Sure was cute though!

Happy Halloween!!!

Lol! Our wood stove has been going nonstop! That's how we heat the entire house. Cheaper. And hotter!
Those outfits are the cutest! I love their faces!

Love the pic of the boys snugglin' by the fire! And those costumes are adorable, but I could definitely sense their disgust!

Glad Mother Nature spared you from what so many thousands are dealing with right now. Stay warm!

So how do you like your pellet stove? Can you use real wood instead of the pellets? Why pellet over wood? We hope to build in two years and I am leaning towards a wood stove insert into a fireplace and have read about the pellet stoves. what if you run out of pellets?

Thanks everyone. The boys are happy Halloween only comes once a year! Suzan - regarding your pellet stove questions, I personally would prefer a wood stove but the house came with a pellet stove when we bought it. No, you can't burn anything other than pellets in it. The plus that my husband likes - he doesn't have to split and store wood. The minuses I don't like - it doesn't work when you lose electricity and it's more expensive because it uses electricity AND you have to buy and store pellets. Just my personal opinion. :-)

So cute! What a cozy scene by the pellet stove, and cozy blog you have. It is hard to believe we are halfway through fall already.
