The sun is shining; it is 46°; Willow actually let her milk down this morning; the crew are hanging the outbuilding doors; our son is coming in this evening; our daughter tomorrow.  We are both well. All is right with the world and I am happy and truly thankful.

The puppy is doing well and is in full puppy mode!  E gads!, what have I done?  It has been a while since we had a puppy and we had almost  forgotten.  She has had no more accidents and lets us know when she needs to go out.

The Range Farm crew came out yesterday to finish up the milk parlor and the two outbuildings.  Remember they had been out earlier to measure, spread two loads of  gravel and take the  bulk tank out of the parlor.  They are a local business and do outstanding work.  They also do custom hay and we had them do our hay this year.  We were very pleased with that too.

We have also engaged them to paint the barn in the spring.

This is the owner hard at work on the new entrance door to the Milk Parlor/Exercise Room.

The new door in place,

This is the old chicken house on the west side of the yard.  The men finished hanging the new doors this morning,

They will add new siding to the two narrow strips  on either side of the door.

Those same two men are now hanging the sliding doors on the east shed.

We are both so pleased to get this project  done. 
I asked their permission to post the pictures and tell you about their company.  We  recommend them highly. 

I have two slabs of baby back ribs in the oven now for our dinner with our son this evening.  I will also be testing my new deep fat fryer with french fries.  I am making him his favorite cream pie.
More on how all this turned out later.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and eat until you drop.  We can all start dieting the day after.........or not.


  1. Well look at you go, Glenda. What a whirlwind of activity, projects gettin' done, folks comin' in and a puppy to make everyone smile. Yay for you.

    Glad those guys are doing a good job. I know you have had some real stinkers workwise in the past. Fingers crossed for the rest of your projects.

    Enjoy the ribs tonight and Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. I've got the bird in the oven now and giblets simmering on the stove. Having the turkey out of the way will make things go much smoother tomorrow here. Take care. *hugs*

  2. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Glenda.
    Won't it be nice with new doors!
    I'm not going to worry about diet, what's a diet anyway.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
    God Bless the United State of America.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Glenda, and all your family!
