It's a wonderful day for so many reasons. My husband has been in the city doing some on site computer maintance that he couldn't do over the internet and is going to be home tonight.  It's been a rough week staying up at night to guard the farm, so having him back has extra perks. We've had some much needed rain that has perked up the crops and our rural conglomerate of farms will start harvesting this weekend. We'll spend the next 2 weeks bartering with our surplus for what we didn't produce enough of and at the end of the 2 weeks, we all pitch in to have a fall feast. We all bought a cow together 3 years ago, and that's coming to the feast too.  I really do hope that the nice weather holds up, for the rest of the winter and it doesn't get real hot again. I home school my children as there is no schools open in our area. My oldest son started his high school studies online this fall is doing very well. He very much wants to goto University. Working on keeping the family power grid has really given him and interest in engineering. I hope there are still secure Universities he can get into in 4 years. Well I need to get the cellar ready, I'll let you all know how the harvest goes.
