Sunny Sunday Harvest

It is nearing the end of October and it has been such a full month for me. Full like the harvest moon full. One reason has been the weather. It has been so beautiful. Autumn perfect. I think thats why there are two names for this time of year, Fall and Autumn. A regular full moon is great, but a harvest moon is awesome. Fall is great, but when it is awesome it is called Autumn.

This afternoon was an example of the fullness I've been feeling this month. I didn't really do any one thing that was extra special, but one thing after another added up to a, "real fine day". It was a harvest type of day around here. I hauled and forked some hay for my goats - whom I have locked up with a young buck who has come over for a conjugal visit. So far, no dice. Let's just say Julio isn't having A real full fall. Yet. Then I washed the eggs I harvested from my chickens this week. This is the only time of year I can get behind on my eggs.

Then I gathered the beets I'd pulled and cut the tops off for storage. 43 pounds of beets.

Domino and Sarah joined in the harvest too.

Then I went and had a visit with my gramma. Her face lights up and she smiles so big when she sees me - that really fills my heart so full. It is a very deeply layered full. From there I drove down to the river and watched the sun set.

A real fine day.
