Just another day on the farm...

We have been have some nice days on the farm. I love fall weather and spring there is beauty in both. We finally had our fist frost. It got all the flowers and my little fig tree that the figs never got ripe. I dd not think that they would but I was hoping. They grew some but that is the end for them.

We have been seeing a couple of snakes. Yesterday the Farmer saw this Eastern hognose snake when walking to his deer stand. He said it was hissing at him. Two days ago we saw a little tiny snake. Not sure what kind it was. 

We got us some new furniture about a week ago. Our old furniture was used when we got it and was almost wore out then. We went to Big Lots and got this. It is really nice and sits good. We also got a 3 year warranty with it. 

we got the sofa and love seat
I found some little carolers that I want to make and hang on my tree. You need the old kind of clothes pins to make them. I had to ordered them off of Amazon. They did not have them at any of the local stores. Are they not just so cute. I found them on Pinterest. I am also going to try to make some big ones like. I am making my own big clothes pins my aunt Henny Penny shared with me. I am excited to see how they turn out. I hope they won't be to hard. 

This is the beginning of them

Yesterday the Farmer gave the cows some hay and Clay wanted to ride on the tractor with him. 

I got out Monday night and took a picture of the super moon. I love taking pictures of the moon. 

Quick update on my devotion. I am still loving the book and it is really making me think. I still do not have my eating under control, but I am confident with Gods help and prayers that I will succeed. I ordered me a new exercise program to start. I am starting a new challenge December 5th with the Beach Body coach Autumn Calabrese. I am excited. I have one more program I need to order to do it. 

I hope that I am up to this!! Already feeling tired. 

I have got to get my eating under control. Fifty is getting nearer and nearer. I still have 30 more pounds to lose and I am determined to do it. Please pray for me. 

Well thanks for stoping by. Also thank you to my new followers. I will try to write more often now that I have new followers. Thanks.
