Fall lists

Today is the first day of fall.
Yesterday we finished baling.
We made 1497 big round bales.

In the process of making these bales we had:
broken the pto on the tractor,
had about 3 flat tires,
broken baler belts,
broken a window in the tractor,
had a radiator breakdown,
hit a huge rock with the mower,
mowed over a harrow,
broke some bearings in the mower
and so on...

Now, a new season has started,
one that always makes me feel like I need to be in a hurry to get things organized before winter.

All we need to get done before winter sets in is:
haul 1497 bales home
dig up the water lines from the pumphouse to the dugout
put in new water lines within the barn
make an extra loading chute for the sheep
put in some fencing
get the new cattle corral finished
landschape the yard area
remove manure from barn
train my young border collies (this was supposed to happen during the summer..)

So when I feel stressed,
I will just have to take a deep breath and look at all the pretty trees for a moment, waste time and write a blog...
and then get back at the work again!

Fall in my favorite season though, cool nights, sunny days, beautiful sunsets and rises, clear crisp air, colors on the trees.
