Happy Samhain

Samhain or the end of summer as we know it. It is also considered the start of a new year! I hope your day has been exciting. 2HAPPYHALLOWEEN

We have a new camera that we are taking pictures with. Guess what we have been finding! Orbs. Tonight we got some pretty rain drops to go with our orbs.

Happy Halloween from Emerald Nose!

This one doesn’t look as scary as the original. I do wish I could find a program that would let me really create great pictures for holidays. Everything has gone to apps including windows 10 and I can’t find anything to make great pics with. Anyway, here is the original and if (that is a big IF) I can get Mr. Nose to sit still for 5 seconds I might be able to get a photo of him for you as well.

Pretty scary kitten huh?

Oh have you heard about the asteroid that will pass Earth today that is really a dead comet? If not then click here. Interesting story and a video. It looks like a skull in sky.

How is that for the latest Nose News?

Good Morning Snow

Sorry this is a bit later in the morning than I wanted. Been really busy. My new office is getting together. The kids have concerts and all their activities. Been hectic. Can’t wait for a slow down.

A Frosty Sunday Nothing Post

We haven’t had really great weather lately. Frost every night. I had to harvest early. I started canning what I could. The leaves haven’t even changed all the way and we are in the throes of winter. We covered what we couldn’t get to right away. I am grateful we don’t have a big garden. I planted just enough to can a few items. This is my first garden here. When we first moved in, I didn’t have time to plant a garden. It was too late in the season so we ended up with chickens first. Yesterday, we got the coop ready for winter. I need to stock up on hay and pine shavings for winter cleaning. I clean it out as much as I can in the winter since the chickens don’t like to leave the coop much. They really hate the snow.

As you can see, chickens really hate snow. It is hard on their little toes.

We went to Manistique Big Boy for a break from work. Love eating there. Not everyone has a Big Boy but everyone should. On our way there we stopped at Walmart to pick up some supplies and I discovered this gem. Yoopers are ingenious. They find ways to reuse stuff that most people just throw away. We don’t just throw stuff away we can use. We just find a new way of using them like this guy.

Now for the biggest news. I GOT A NEW COFFEE CUP! Yep. Straight from Big Boy. As a matter of fact the name on the cup is what I was thinking about calling this blog until I went with Yooper Story. I did think about calling it Yooper Girl or Yooper Girl in da Woods. I had a ton of ideas. But here it is!!!!!

You gotta admit, this is a great CUP!!!

May your day be filled with sun. May your garden grow huge.

A Final Stab at Writing for Class Now Onto the Future

This next month I will be finishing up all the Writing 101 emails I missed writing. I have a few I am still working on. I hope to get them done soon. I will put them with the Writing 101 tag so you can still read them.

This next month I will be adding some short stories I have been working on. I hope to get all my stories done by the end of October. I am not signed up for a new class yet but I hope to get one in this month as well. Maybe I will retake Writing 101.

This next month I will be looking for a new office for my business, bringing the baby ferals down to the shelter, selling more eggs, and finishing my fall cleaning schedule. I have my cleaning broken down for less stress but a clean house.

This next month I will be renewing my massage license and insurance. There is so much to do in this next month. I even have Halloween to plan.

This next month I hope to see everyone again. I hope your blogs stay strong and your writing stays fresh. I will miss you all and I thank you all for the feedback and love.
