Happy Sunday!  This week and weekend have been an absolute blur around here.  I was traveling all week for my day job which always makes things hectic and out of sorts.  Saturday we had higher temps - 30's, so we were able to get a few things done including the last "fall" coop cleaning.  And for the first time in almost a year, we went out and about Saturday night to some stores we've wanted to check out but never have time to.  We didn't have time on Saturday either, but sometimes you must make the time and that's what we did.

Sunday warmed up even more although we were at the farmer's market most of the day.  Tomorrow is also supposed to get warm - around 60, and then back to the cooler temps.

The Coop Girls are not laying at all.  Not one egg.  Can you believe I had to buy a dozen eggs for the first time in 8 years???  We had been adding chickens every 2 years to prevent exactly this, but we added younger girls this year so, well, it didn't quite work out well for us.  Oh well.  Thankfully there are a few farmer's at the Sunday market selling their eggs if we ever need anymore.

How is it possible that Thanksgiving is this week?  I can hardly believe how quickly the time is flying by.  Last week I was writing out the next couple of weeks of menu plans.  That's when I discovered Thanksgiving was this week.  Ugh....I hate when it sneaks up on me like that!  :)

I bought some white chocolate and the softer peppermint candies over the weekend to make peppermint bark since Christmas is right around the corner.  I don't think I'll get around to making many other goodies for the Holidays.  Thankfully, sales are through the roof right now on our Cobble Hill Farm Apothecary line, giving me plenty to do with every single spare moment.  I have a lot to think about going into next year.  A lot of decisions to make.....

I have no idea if we'll get a Christmas tree up this year.  Part of me wants to so the Holiday season doesn't pass on by without anytime to enjoy it, but part of me doesn't want to because I will only see it in passing.  Jack and Cait will vote yes for the tree - it always turns them into naughty, curious little cats.  Oliver and Emerson will vote no.  They don't appreciate it in their space and Oliver particularly doesn't like watching me put the ornaments on.  He's a guy that doesn't like change.  At all.

How about you, are you ready for the Holidays?

Hoping you had a wonderful weekend!

Seems life is on a whirlwind in your world. The fewer ornaments I put out for Christmas each year the more relieved when the season is over and I don't have to pack it up. There are years we didn't put up a tree and life still carried smoothly on. :-)

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
