Tuesdays With Tag - Fall At The Farm...

Brynwood's Taggart - Lookin' Good

 Hi, Everybody!
I'm hopin' all of you are enjoyin' the cooler weather as much as Bella and I are.
We had a fabulously, wonderfully cool day yesterday, so Mom took us out to catch some rays.

I also did a little explorin', but Mom thought I was gettin' too far afield, so she called me back.

I'm Back!

Good thing I like to run. It fit with her plan that I should stick close, but I really just wanted to run!

Taggart, Sniffin' The Air

There was more than a little air sniffin' yesterday, too. Everythin' smells different in the fall.
It's Mom's favorite time of year, but I'm thinkin' it's mine, too. There's so much to see sniff and do.

Everybody's A Critic

 Of course, Bella was hangin' around, too, but apparently, she isn't impressed with my 
sniffin' skills. Too bad, lady. It is what it is, and I'm happy to sit here an sniff the day away.

Tag Says, "See Ya Next Week!"

I'm glad we were able to spend so much time outdoors. The weather fell apart shortly 
 after  these pictures were taken, and it got dark and cold. We'll take the sunny days while we 
can. They might get few and far between. It really is fall at the farm!

 I'll see you again in seven. 'til then...

Beautiful Weekend...

Oldest and Youngest
What a perfect fall weekend I had! It began with a visit with my youngest sister. I always enjoy time with her, and this visit was no exception. We had a great time, and of course, memorialized the day with a picture together.
Drum Room Painting

Handsome and I also put the final coat of paint on the inside of his ground-level storage room. Now for him to choose carpet and shelving. This room will be climate controlled (and comfortable) for storing and setting up his drums. He'll be setting one kit up to play, and I think he needs a chair or two in case anyone (me! me!) wants to sit and listen while he rehearses.
Farmhouse Lavender Jelly

After putting the final coat of paint on the new room, Handsome and I each hopped on one of our yard tractors and mowed our yard. It usually takes one person about three hours, so when we both tackle the task it takes (somehow) less than half the time! It was done in no time flat!

On the way back inside, I noticed that my lavender was full of blossoms (and bees, enjoying them), so I thought there may be enough to share. I worked without disturbing the bees and left plenty for them to enjoy. I quickly had enough blossoms for a "short" recipe for Lavender Jelly, so I went inside.

Within an hour, I lifted the finished jars out of their water bath to cool. I now have five small jars of jelly to enjoy or share over the winter. I may be able to make one more small batch after the bees are ready to rest for the winter, but it's okay if I don't. I'll be preparing my garden to sleep under the snow in a few weeks, so the bees still have time to feast among the flowers.

I took this photograph on my way home from my sister's on Saturday evening. I pulled over to safely take it. It was a perfect day weekend, and I'm happy to have these pictures to remember it.

I hope you had as wonderful a weekend as we did, and that you have a great week ahead, too.
