    We are going to build another chicken house and do some hunting in the afternoons, and since the weather is supposed to be a little chilly this weekend lay up in front of the fire place at night.

    Chain sawing/splitting Hickory snags into `bite sized' wood stove chunks. Killing and clearing Osage Orange/Honey Locust/Amur Honey suckle/Multifloral Rose so as to clear sites for spring planting, i.e., erosion control and maybe a bit of property `enhancement' (trying, in a desultory fashion, to get ahead of the ungulate rats - bambi to suburbanites - for the past sixteen years).

    We're planting a bunch of evergreens. I can't stand the brown of winter.
    Have to finish up a table and a huge metal sculpture for a customer so we have some money for Christmas.
    And hopefully giving away of some of these puppies! [​IMG]

    We are working on finishing up our new coop (poop boards and 1 more roost). We also have to finish the new run, we are putting up the gate and then putting poultry netting over the top. I am baking an apple pie tomorrow and making deviled eggs for our Thanksgiving celebration.
