Planning the Doggie Olympics

Sharkey and I have blogged quite a bit about all the snow that we’ve gotten at the farm.  Snow is really kind of fun, if it doesn’t cascade from a roof on top of you.  While we were scouting around the other day, we came upon some snow saucers and hopped on board.  Have a …

Yesterday, Franny kind of kept you hanging about what we, Frenchies, would find next on our little adventure around the farm after the blizzard.  She ended the blog as we were headed towards the stable to visit our friends there.  Let me just say that after a heavy snow, you just can’t be too careful …

Exploring After the Blizzard

Exploring After the Blizzard

Today on Martha’s blog, she posted photos of what things looked like at the farm right after the blizzard.  I have to tell you that Sharkey and I were really concerned with how fiercely the wind was blowing.  It was kind of difficult to go outside and do, you know what.  Well, once things settled …

Sharkey Helps Decorate for the Holidays

It isn’t officially winter yet, but snow has started to fall and  Sharkey and I were quite surprised yesterday morning to see it.  I started thinking that the guys had better finish getting the outside decorated for the holidays before more snow starts to accumulate.  I guess they were all thinking the same thing.

Sharkey and I have been going around the farm, inspecting all that’s being done in preparation for a long and cold winter.  I started thinking about all the creatures down at the stable and if they would have a sufficient supply of hay to get through the season.  Here’s what we found.

We were wandering around the farm the other day, noticing all of the changes going on in preparation for winter.  We don’t usually wander too close to the beehives because when the honeybees are really active, we don’t want to get in their way, if you know what I mean.  But, in cold weather, things …

When we were in Maine last week, it was the peak of the leaf season. The view from the terrace of Skylands was so amazing, but I really wanted to go for a drive in Acadia National Park to see more splendors. Here’s what we encountered.

If you read Martha’s blog yesterday, then you know we went hiking while we were in Maine.  You know that Sharkey and I are avid hikers and we’re trying to get G.K. conditioned as a skilled trekker.  And after scaling Parkman Mountain in Acadia National Park, I think the boy has what it takes.

Franny and I were soaking up the warmth of the sun the other day when I suddenly realized something major was happening.  We, Frenchies, have had such an amazing summer and we hoped it would go on forever.  No such luck!

Driving With Uncle Carlos

Uncle Carlos came to visit yesterday.  It was a rainy day and we really wanted to get out of the house for a while.  He said that he would take us for a spin around the farm in the Kawasaki, one of our favorite things to do.  Come along for the ride!
