Autumn, Ahoy!

    I'm full of outfit ideas involving fall colors, but I couldn't resist welcoming the season with
something nautical.  I only wish I lived a little nearer to a body of water so I could take some pics more in line with the theme.  Oh well, the woods are turning gorgeous colors so this navy blue really stands out among all the reds and oranges and yellows.  I also managed to welcome the season with a minor farm accident.  We heard about a man who had some wire fencing he wanted to get rid of and would give it for free to anyone willing to come and tear it down without leaving nails all over the ground.  We agreed since we need to build some fences for the chickens and all the other animals we hope to acquire in the spring.  
    We spent about four hours one very cool day last week pulling rusty fencing staples from rotted wood posts.  About midway through this endeavor, I hit a particularly stubborn staple that refused to come out.  So, with the staple puller firmly hooked underneath, I put both hands on the grip, and one foot on the post and pulled with all my strength.  Turns out, I'm much stronger than I thought and the staple came flying out while I went flying backwards into the box of old staples and barbed wire bits.  I scratched my arm to pieces, but managed to find the staple and add it to the box.  So, don't be alarmed if you happen to see a few scratches in these pics, or bruised knees from kneeling on the ground for the four hours it took to pull up that fence.  It's all just a part of being a farm girl and a fashionista.
