Pumpkin doughnuts are everywhere right now.
And who can resist, I ask?
So we did partake, with some steaming hot coffee, but first we earned them big-time.
This wood from another lot was driven to our lot and needed to be piled for drying.
This is where the above doughnuts worked as fuel. ;-b
My dear Aunt Francis, my mom's little sister, dropped by with family to have a walk around the property and chat about her memories on the farm. We had a good laugh about some of the silliness that her and my mom would get into as kids. She walked around the old chicken coop and told me that at one time her grandpa and dad kept 2 work horses inside the log building while they were moving a barn and building the little clap-board house. She has such vivid memories of her childhood.
Here you can see where the rotting vines have been removed now. The building is completely log under the barn board .
It was so nice to see them all. We talked about our plans to take down the old chicken coop because of rotting wood and carefully rebuild it in the near future. Right now you cannot enter it safely.
It will be off the lot line and moved to a better place but it will remain the same as much as possible. Aunt Francis felt better knowing that we are saving all the wood and she looks forward to seeing it rebuilt and usable again. For what?, you may ask. Well, if the retired-guy gets his way it will be housing chickens again someday. Maybe....
"Oh ya...bring on the chickens. Yummy...yum"
"Behave, Audrey. They would be laying hens and that's that."
