The wood stove came and we had our first fire. Not the kind of fire you'd enjoy, because it was pretty warm outside. But we still had to have a fire.
Ain't she a beaut? We can not only heat the house with it, I can cook a full turkey in the oven. Plus all the trimmings on the top. When I saw this stove I fell in love with it. So now when the snow flies, and we get snowed in, and the electricty goes out, we not only won't freeze, we won't starve.
Speaking of turkeys, I took the long way to town yesterday and found what I thought were wild turkeys at first. But, after I uploaded my photos on the computer Jim and I figured out that they were wild guineas. Never saw a guinea before. There are lots of wildlife here that I've never seen before.
This area is full of either cows or horses and I just love seeing them.
A cemetary that I've passed a few times. I finally stopped to take some pictures.
Daughter Rebecca came in last night. She drove through some rain and even had to be re-routed because of some flooding in Minnesota. But, she made it and it'll be fun visiting with her.
We have a surveyor coming to survey not only our property, but the place that sold to the south of us. Jim talked to the buyer and he's from Iowa and has lived here about a year. He wants to run a few head of beef like we do. Sounds like he and his wife will be good neighbors :)
I told you it was a mish mash kind of post. No rhyme or reason. That's okay it just might be that kind of day.
You all have a wonderful Friday.
