Last day of the long weekend. I love long weekends. You can really get things done and still have time to relax and enjoy before the work week starts again. This time my son and I are the lucky ones. The Husband had to work today. We had a busy weekend cleaning up the leaves-we kind of cheat a little. We use the mower to help pick up the leaves. Makes quick work out of a chore that would take a good chunk of time to accomplish. Yay for the John Deere lawn mower. The clucks got to get out and forage in the yard. They found all sorts of fat juicy worms and bugs. While they were out in the yard I cleaned out the coop. Raked the leaves from the outer run area as well. Our son chopped up some kindling for the wood stove.We did all of the other mundane tasks like washing dishes and doing laundry etc as well. All and all a very productive weekend. Just in time to get things in order for cooking a big Thanksgiving feast. Gathering ideas for some new dishes to try, as well as our tried and true old favorites.
