The Farmhouse
Got to the farm and it was a beautiful day, clear and cool...

That didn't last long...

By late afternoon, it was in the upper 80's.  In the full sun outside, the car after sitting there for the day, was showing 104 degrees as the outside temperature. Of course that's the heat of the metal and reflected heat around the sensor, but when we're out in the yard trying to do stuff, it was the same feeling on us.  It's supposed to be Fall!  Needless to say, not a LOT of outside stuff got done.  

While I was outside roaming around, checking the property, this big guy came by to visit.

He is the neighbor's dog (the neighbor to the East of us).  At first I thought he was perhaps a new member of 2nd Family's animals but they said he roams over from time to time.  He was SO sweet and SO well behaved.  I walked and he followed along beside me, looking up at me and when I stopped, he sat down.  Then I tested him and walked around some more, he followed me and would stop and sit every time.  He was a good boy!  He also had the cutest kiss face.  He always looked happy.  After an hour or so, he roamed back home.

Before we left, 2nd Family stopped by and gave us a couple dozen eggs from their chickens.  Some good eats are coming this week!

Farm fresh eggs
It was a good weekend, more updates in the coming days.  Time to go eat now.  We hope you had a great weekend doing what makes you happy!
