Christmas Craft Fair at Mascoma Valley Regional High School

This is a new to us show. We can not set up until 7 am, and the doors
open at 9 am. It will be a long day! I will have to feed the animals and
leave the farm at 6 am in order to get there for 7 am.
I've been told that there are a LOT of customers that come to this event.
We will be set up in a corner in the cafeteria somewhere.
My friend, Anne Mitts, will be in the cafeteria also. I won't
know where until I get there. I am hoping we are close enough
to spot each other's booths if we need to step away. 

Come by and say hi!

Our show at the Presbyterian Church in New London, NH to benefit LSVNA Hospice

This is the 14th year of this show. I believe I have 
only done it 3-4 times. This is at least the 2nd (3rd?)
time I've done it in this location.
It is nice that Jerry helps me set up on Friday 
night and take down on Saturday afternoon.
 This is how it got rearranged Saturday morning. ;)

 I've been busy knitting and felting.

 A lot of the hats were down this spring during our
trips to shearing jobs and this summer while sitting
at farmer's market. I can't just sit still.

Two (maybe 3) more shows and I will then post
what I have available for sale of the blogs and 
on the Face Book pages.
This was Friday night setup.
 The nice thing about setting up the night before
is that we can tweak it the next morning if needed.
The decision was made to hang the scarves.
I like to go vertical with displays as much as I 
can. I believe they are more visually pleasing.

I do thank all the customers who purchased from us
Saturday. We were able to buy 7 bags of grain.

It has been a hell of a week!

 Sunday we had a wicked storm pass through.
Serious wind and rain.
 The wind snapped this tree, and the top 
landed on the top two wires. The only
thing that kept it from taking out all of 
the wires was the branch. The power
blinked out at 10 pm Sunday night, but
it came back. It went out for good
Monday morning at 5:30 am.

 As I type this by generator power, it is 2 pm Friday 
and we still do NOT have power. Ever Source called
this morning and said that someone would be out.
I've yet to see, or hear, anyone checking it out.
It is getting quite expensive to run the generator.
But, at least I am not trying to fill buckets of 
water from the brook out behind the barn.
We've done that in the past, when we were younger.
 But, the animals don't know any different.
Stormy and his visiting girlfriend are using the 
temporary shelter. Fortunately they are both 
trained to the electronet, so it does not have to be on.
 The water has receded in the pigs' yard. 
Their acre was 3/4's under water.
They had plenty of  dry places to sleep though.
 The chickens kiddie pool was empty S.
They still had a dry place to  hang out outside
under the broken EZ-up

 No. They are not spoiled.

 Hiding in plain sight in the garden is Callie Calico.
She is an orange, white and gray tabby calico.
She has found the young catnip and is getting 'stoned'.

 You can see her better here in the lower right corner.
Below, Jack Black is coming to see what she has.
And, the chickens are working on cleaning out the garden.
 Have a good weekend all.

If you are out and about Saturday
from 9-1 come check us out
 at the Danbury Winter Farmer's Market.
