Something new is happening

First off, unrelated, a bit of exciting news. LiEr listed all but one of the Bella Bags in her shop and opened it up for sales last evening. By this morning, all her bags and mine had been sold! Hurray! There's one left that she's auctioning for charity. If you're interested in bidding (it's a stunning bag!), check out the details here. The auction ends tomorrow night at midnight.

Back to today's subject. Those of you who have been following my blog for at least the last few weeks know that Grandpa and his brothers sold the dairy herd, which was a major change. Things are changing again! A few days ago I noticed some additions around our place.... like piles of railroad ties:

And pipes:

More of the same:

And boxes of these:

A huge dental drill:

Okay, maybe not. A post auger, perhaps. I did wonder about the corncob and all those kernels on the cement, though.

And this fence made of twine. Huh?

The guys have been very busy here the last few days, using all those supplies. Here's what I see when I go outside now!

Yep, lots of brand new fences. Good, sturdy fences! What will go inside? I don't know. I don't think it's even been decided for sure yet. We'll just have to wait and see!

I would like there to be zebras, please.

Grandma G said...

Better talk to your pa about that. I'm not sure that's what they have in mind!

LiEr said...

Unicorns. I vote unicorns.

Oh, you should have heard all the references to buffalo as we worked on the fence last Saturday.
Of course, it was just jokes.
I see lots of pregnant stock cows in there.


Grandma G said...

Hmmm... zebras, unicorns and buffalo! This could get verrry interesting!! We could open a zoo!

Auntie Kris said...

How about emu, or alpacas. Although, that fence may be overkill for either of those.

Kim Eisfeld said...

oh oh.. I vote for alpacas. They are so pretty and so soft. We saw some at the Autumn Boutique in Slayton last week.

Grandma G said...

I wonder if alpacas and kitties would snuggle together. It'd sure help the kitties stay warmer in the winter!
