November at Catbird Acres

Fall and Winter are my favorite times of the year. I love the cool weather and my garden is put to bed. I have more time to concentrate on other projects. I have enjoyed spending as much time outside with Benjamin as possible. Benjamin seems to be like his Mommy and would rather be outside than anywhere else. A few weeks ago I purchased a used backpack carrier on e-Bay. Honestly, it has been on the the best purchases I have made for him to date. I wish I had known about these earlier, my garden could have been much bigger.

The only bad thing about this time of year is that a lack of foliage really shows me all the things that need to be done around the property. I keep a wipe board with a list of projects on it and the list just keeps growing. *sigh*

No sewing for me. For past few days, I've had entirely too much to do. I am hoping to fit in at least one quick project today.

This morning I am going to put on the baby backpack so Benjamin and I can head out and replace our No Trespassing signs. I feel like my girls are walking targets this time of year. I sometimes would like to get some neon hair color spray and write HORSE on their sides. Of course they probably couldn't read that either. I don't understand poachers. If you don't have permission to hunt on someone's land, stay off it! We have the borders of the property posted like crazy and yet we still have those that apparently can't read. Amazingly enough my signs tend to vanish this time of year too. I have decided that this year they are going to get a little surprise. I will be keeping an extra close eye and and will be calling the game warden. Ohio law says you must carry written permission from the landowner. Considering I have not given permission to anyone this season they will be hard pressed to produce a letter.


  1. He is so cute! I know what you mean about worrying over the horses this time of year. I get worried during deer season, a friend of ours had someone to shoot his horse, thought it was a deer!
