Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and didn't over indulge to much. Ours was pretty good, Wendy did the bulk of the cooking with the rest of us pitching in where we could. We cooked our turkey a bit different this year, soaking it in a brine and seasoning for 17 hours before cooking. It turned out fantastic, so moist not needing to pour any gravy on it.
We have been keeping pretty busy on the farm, Amanda has a few build projects and I enjoy building things. Wendy has helped out in the house with some deep cleaning which she might not enjoy as much. We have also been working on a long project painting the fences, this one will take some time as there is a lot of fence.

She had an electrician come over from work and we roughed in a plan to get juice to the orchard area where we have the camper parked. We are now just running a long cord from the barn and watching our usage. We eat and shower at the house, it is working out okay. Amanda even set Wendy up a place for Wendy to do her baskets, how cool is that?
It hasn't been all work though, Wendy and I took a drive one day checking out the local springs. It has been very dry here only raining when the two hurricanes rolled through, so the springs were extremely low. We haven't hit the Suwannee River for a trip yet but it to looks very low.
So Saturday we fly out of Orlando with Amanda and Pat, his mom Gayle, and so cool we are meeting her son Alex in Jamaica. Alex and girlfriend Emily will be flying down from Wisconsin and only be able to spend til Tuesday( we will be there the week) needing to get back for school, but it will be great to spend time with them.
