saturday snapshots...

 morning walk with eddie..
 1000 faces...

 I hadn't planned on burning today, but decided with the cool morning, and the threat of rain later, I could burn while cutting, so that I could keep an eye on the fires annnnnd give the land one last cutting for a while since everything is going dormant.

 found these black widows on a piece of wood that I threw in the fire...

 in all, I had four different fires around the property....
 I cleaned up the fencelines.... yeah, buddy! Check out how clean they are!

 As you can tell, it warmed up a bit throughout the day..... One of my favorite things is moving the embers back to expand the burn area while controlling the burn. This way the fire stays small, but the maximum amount if brush is burned.
 it was cool and the grey clouds made for a very picturesque day!
 with the cold snap a few weeks ago, and the heat wave after, the poor apple trees are a bit confused....
 Christian and I picked up all the pecans we could before the rain rolls in....
 I wanted to go over all 9 acres before the rain hit also, so IF any grass decides to come up, it will have a fresh cut to start..
 spent some time in the field with this sweet baby girl while the fires burned...

 cleared the leaves from the paths and added them to the burn piles.... keeps the snakes away from where we walk the Eddie bear!
 Nom nom nomnommm


 ...the fires are all out, and the rain has started....
 and all these steps were why my poor feet needed an epsom bath!!! Ha!
