Oh, November…

You are passing much too quickly!

I took a little time to check out some things going on around the farm right before dusk. 70’s today.. cold weather on the way!

Peeky Calf – he would have taken the treat right from my hand, but Shorty dog shooed him away.

Great Blue Heron, I’ve tried for years to get a decent picture of you. We’re getting there, but still a bit grainy.


I found this old poem again, and it reminds me there is so much to love about November and the weeks to come.

"Give me the end of the year an' its fun
When most of the plannin' an' toilin' is done;
Bring all the wanderers home to the nest,
Let me sit down with the ones I love best,
Hear the old voices still ringin' with song,
See the old faces unblemished by wrong,
See the old table with all of its chairs
An' I'll put soul in my Thanksgivin' prayers."
-  Edgar A. Guest, Thanksgiving

I have the same trouble getting a good shot of a heron also!

Love your little calf. Great picture. November is definitely clipping along at a much to fast rate.

I agree! Actually, this whole year has gone by quickly. Now, if the time until we can get to our new farm would pass as quickly...

I love the photo of the calf! So cute!

Hello my friend! Beautiful pictures. I want YESTERDAY'S weather back. Not quite ready for this Arctic blast!! Have a blessed day!

Loved the pics. Yes this year has flown by and it's going faster and faster. Can't say things are getting better. But we have our own joys and sorrows and we know where we're going and have much to look forward to and to be thankful for.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
