In other news, I'm still canning. Down to the crabapples- probably two batches left to do, and any odds and ends I buy. I'm just doing my canning/recipe posts on my recipe page now, The Country Kitchen, rather than here and a shorter post there.
I'm also writing a fictional little blog, Wendy's Colony, about what I think we would do if the apocalypse started now. It's a fun writing experience, and it makes me think about things a little differently.
It's also moose season. We only have calf tags this year, so I guess my heart really isn't in it. I'd rather be bird hunting. Especially since Smitty is now The Best Dog Ever! From day one my boy has shown me he has all of his Grandpa's instincts, and so many more. He doesn't have his Grandpa's stomach though- not yet anyway. The girls are thankful for that, as they get a treat when we get back. If I could just convince him to bring the birds to me, instead of just pinning them to the ground. Honestly though, at 4 months I wasn't expecting much more from him than to go for a quad ride, so I am super excited for the future.
Here's hoping for a bit of Indian Summer before winter really sets in. I still have lots of work to do.
