Combines, knees, and UFO's

I thought I better let you all know that we finished the harvest! It went very well, and although Clem had expected a better yield, we are more than satisfied. So many farmers aren't done yet, and my heart goes out to them. The weather hasn't been great, so things are taking a while to cure up and dry out.

My garden yielded well, though. Holy tomatoes, Batman! Check this out!

I just love all the fall colors in the yard.

This is the view from my new deck in the morning.

And speaking of my new deck, here it is!
Now for a bit of landscaping. Although soon all will be covered in white and I won't have to think about it!

I won't be posting any more football happenings. Both the boys have called it quits. I don't like the idea of them ending their commitment to the team, but I am rather proud of them for standing up for what they believe. Plus, no more football injuries! Stephen was on crutches for a week with a bad knee, but it turns out it is likely just a muscle injury (not ligament, thank goodness!) and some physical therapy should have him ready for hockey in no time. Did I just say that?

Thanks for stopping by. If you hear any screaming coming from the Schraefel ranch, don't be alarmed. It's just me trying to figure out my new cell phone. I'll let you know when there are no more flying objects (think cell phones, or computers) and it's safe to come for another visit.

Bye for now!
Chandra

I love your blog. I am relatively new to Saskatchewan (we moved here 3 months ago) and I stumbled upon your blog tonight. I'll definately be back to read!
