Things are up in the air

 Winter is here, but today we have a respite from the cold.  The thermometer says 36 degrees and there's not a bit of wind.  We've been getting the homestead buckled up for winter.  Today I'm cleaning out the extra boards and siding from in front of my barn. The turkeys and chickens are butchered and in the freezer. I picked up a breeding pair of Royal Palms.
Aren't they beautiful birds?


 I finished siding my barn today and patching up the sheep shed. We've had timberwolves around at night and I don't want them in with my sheep!




 My husband took advantage of the gorgeous weather to finish siding the north side of the house. Here's a picture of how he elevated his homemade scaffolding. Don't call OSHA, please

                                                                                                     
My coffee break is over and I want to get outside before we lose the sun. Hope your day is glorious. From Glory Farm

Omigosh! That Royal Palm turkey is the most beautiful I've ever seen! May the pair give you lots and lots of little turks!

We've been outside most of the day, too. Our temp didn't get as high as yours and we had no sun, but at least it was above freezing for several hours. Makes a world of difference for chilly fingers!

You're fortunate to have the machinery to improvise when "help" is needed. It may look Rube Goldberg-ish, but I'm sure your hubby made it plenty safe.

affectioknit- My honey is creative isn't he? Glad it was his job and not mine.

Mama Pea-Truth is that's just a picture from pinterest of the turkey, but my tom does look like that. I hope you're getting these warm temps today, again. No sun, but lots of melting snow.

Amanda-I'm having trouble getting them to eat. Think the move was just too traumatic for them??
