 Doesn’t potpourri sound nicer than a a bunch of unrelated pictures or mishmash or hodgepodge?  I kind of like Melange though – next time I have an unorganized collection I may use that one.

 So here is a potpourri of pictures from the past few days.

Our sweet dog Molly (3/4 heeler, 1/4 black lab) in the maple leaves.  

We moved the cattle to a fresh paddock.  Though the grass isn’t growing back as quickly as it did in the summer, there is still enough in this pasture for two weeks or so – and then it will be time to move them home for the winter.

Cousins Nick and Alex moving my china cabinet into Alex’s new (to him) house.  Ah boys . . . did I mention I think it would look nicer if you moved it onto a different wall after I told you to put it on that one?

Rick putting on the last piece of metal roofing on our new, larger cattle shed yesterday evening.  Notice the snow on the mountains behind him?  We are trying to get the new pasture ready before it starts snowing down here – and we are almost done!

We had a load of gravel delivered for the new cattle shed and our other dog Grizzly (full blooded heeler) had to climb to the top.

And another day is done, complete with a beautiful sunset.

    That looks like some pretty fancy digs for Alex – does he have a spare bedroom (with a bed, of course)? Loved all the potpourri shots.
