Narraganset Turkey by yvonne_d

We raised him from a little thing just about 2 weeks old! had him here in the yard with his 2 siblings until most of their adult feathers were in, then they spent the past several months free-ranging in the mountains with Q's brother. Back here for about a week, getting fattened up with grain and apples. Then to be shared with the family tomorrow. Full circle.

things are generally quite good for me. All is happy and good in relationship side of things. Exciting plans are in motion. And unlike many folks these days I am mostly dealing with having more work than I want, that pays just fine. I just kind of was planning on more time that wasn't devoted to other people's projects or other people's stuff.

I have projects and stuffs too! More news soon. Also, I am excited about all the lovely home canned goods we have in our house! We will have tasty peaches in January!

I let the turkeys out today for the first time, they are about 6-7 weeks old and until today I wasn't certain they were all boys. However, their first mission when they were out of the coop was to puff up and seek to establish dominance -- all of them puffed up and two of them got fairly confrontational. I intervened a little -- didn't want any blood shed and to establish I'm bigger than all of them. Then they settled down to explore the yard a bit.

just read the first book of the hunger games

good book! i didn't know it was a series when i picked it up, makes it even better to know that there is more to come with these characters and in this setting.

i haven't intentionally sat down with some fiction other than for school for a long time, it felt good to just read for the pleasure of reading.

I'm not completely done with the last of my papers and such, however, I officially walked the stage and got a super hero cape. At least I think it looks more like a cape then a hood. :)

and now I get some letters to put after my name too!

grad school has been a tough two years, I have learned a lot about myself as well as how I want to work with people and what's truly important.

i don't think i would be half as sane at this moment without the amazing support of my awesome sweetie. it's been so wonderful to have so much support and encouragement and love, backing me all the way.

thank you!

saying good bye to the coachin (ie fluffy foots), they are big enough to go out to the property. Hopefully this means the laying hen will return to laying, with less crowding in the hen house.

Q and I carved pumpkins tonight.
We also noticed the last apple fell off the tree in the yard.
Time for seasons to change, seems like first big rain of the fall may be this weekend.
