A Relaxing Fall Weekend...............

This has been a wonderfully relaxing weekend. Saturday morning we looked out and saw this hawk happily perched upon our wind turbine. The birds never come near it when the turbine is spinning. It's nice to have the hawks visiting. A bit later, we looked out and saw a lone coyote doing his best to dig up a rabbit hole - no doubt he had chased one right into it!

Today I've spent most of my time working on this project for a yarn company while watching some great Hallmark movies. We all took a short break from what we were doing and even managed a short walk up the hillside.

And as I'm writing this, I've got a batch of oatmeal/orange/cranberry cookies in the oven. Just add the zest of two oranges and 1 cup of dried cranberries to your favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and you'll be hooked!

And tomorrow our oldest grandson, Spencer, turns a big 10! Happy Birthday Spencer!

I hope your weekend has been delightful too, and that the week ahead holds some nice surprises for you. (Good ones of course!)

If you haven't left a comment on the "November Sock Giveaway" post, please do so, so that you'll have a chance to win a pair of hand cranked socks.

Til next time.................

Hi, here in central Illinois we have had a lot of turbines built. My oldest daughter is a big bat fan and is very concerned about them with the turbines. Have you noticed any that have been stunned or killed by the turbine? We would like to have some first hand knowledge.
O and I love the picture with the hawk they are some of my favorite bird.

Hi Heather,
We've never had a problem with birds or bats with the wind turbine. When it's spinning, it makes quite a loud sound and everything stays away from it.
