Bare Foot on November 3rd 2015

With the beautiful weather we had today and I am so thankful that I got out and enjoyed some of it. I started the day inside, making a batch of soap.

No that is not vanilla pudding – “don’t eat it” . Then I filtered the beeswax from our last honey harvest. By 2:00 I was ready to get out of the house, so I loaded Scout and Trooper into the van and we headed to the farm. My husband was working on the chicken coop remodel, and I really didn’t know what I was going to do except be outside. After all you don’t often get 75 degrees and sunny on November 3rd in Michigan. In fact the temperature tied the record high which was set back in 1987.

After I went for a walk in the field with Trooper I decided that I would rake the out the leaves that had settled in the beach end of the pond. If I had planed this before I left home I would have been wearing my rubber boots, but since the weather was so nice I decided to just go bare foot.

The sand was warm as was the air temperature, but I didn’t wade into the water because, while it obviously wasn’t freezing, (no ice) it was cold.

I wasn’t the only one who enjoyed our above average temperature.

The chickens were happy to be out and about and scratching for bugs.

After I raked the beach area,

and picked up the piles of leaves so they would not end up back in the pond, I cut up some branches that we will use for kindling and then took a few more photos of this beautiful November day.
