The house is clean, Thanksgiving leftovers are in the oven, the wind is howling outside and all of the pets are napping inside.

There are homesteading greens in the salad and home made cookies and bread on the table.

My oldest now drives and the kids have gone to town. DH is napping in the bedroom.

I planted some flower bulbs in the home made greenhouse. I was hoping to harvest turnips but they are not bulbing up yet. I have to be satisfied with the radish, cabbage, onion, and beet greens in the salad.

I sit here, surrounded by the bounty from both the homestead and town, and life can be BLISS!

Terri, what a lovely picture! You mean at some point there's a chance for a nap!!!

I agree with you - since having this farm our quality of life is SO much improved.

Agreed.
I work nightshift and every day when work is finished i take my dogs and go to our land 5 and half miles from our city home.
I don't have any house at the land, just a camp under an ancient olive tree. but weather here (south of Spain) is so nice i don't miss any roof most part of the year.


is very relaxing doing some work on the land and also there's time for a nap under the warm morning sun of November

Nacho, don't you get SUNBURNED like that?

Your land is very beautifull!

Every spring I feel like sleeping under the sun like that but I know that I would be sunburned if I did!

Today I harvested some vegetables to put in the salad: I used 2 tiny turnips and a radish to go with the store bought lettuce. This time of year the store bought lettuce is absolutely tasteless, so the added vegetables added a great deal to the taste!

Hi Terri thereĀ“s no problem with the sun in late autum, and winter, but in spring to early autum, better get a good straw hat or/and sun blocking cream. Anyway i spend long time outdoors and i'm fairly suntanned wich somehow serves as a sun protection.
Granada is a lovely place, we are close to Sierrenevada range here you can see at the left side Veleta Peak 3395 meters (11139 feet) height, ski resort is only 20 miles road fron town and also we have the Mediterranean coast at 48 miles road, so in spring time you can have skiing morning and beach swimming in the afternoon
