~ Farm, that is. I'll get to that in a minute :)
Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining, but something is just not right. It is November 27th, I live in northern Ohio, and yesterday I had the door open. I smelled freshly mowed grass. (I cut mine, too - easier than raking.) Grandson Jake and I were playing outside and he was in short sleeves with no jacket on. Well, to me it's not quite that warm, but to a 6 year old it is! I'm lovin' it. Friday I took Jake and my two great nieces Sophia and Alexis to the lake to search for beach glass. They are predicting a harsher winter than normal with an over-abundance of snow. Oh, how I hope the weather-guessers are wrong.
My niece, her hubby and daughters Sophia (age 8) and Alexis (age 5) made their annual Thanksgiving pilgrimage to Ohio from Chicago. Friday we thought it would be fun to head to That'll Do Farm. Hooker (and knitter and spinner) Andrea welcomed us and gave us the grand tour. Here an alpaca . . .
there an alpaca . . .
. . . everywhere an alpaca-paca. Oh, wait. Wrong farm.
We got to feed Joey the llama and the goats he protects.

I hope the chickens don't feel too left out. I forgot to get a picture of them. Andrea tried to get Jake to help clean the chicken coup, but he would have nothing to do with it!
If you are ever in the northern Ohio area, be sure to stop by and say hi. If you are a knitter or spinner, you will be in heaven. Gorgeous, soft wools. Makes me want to learn to knit ~ in my spare time . . . lol! It is a fun place to spend an afternoon.

I found the cutest masks at Dollar Tree (I love that store!) for the kids.
They were glow-in-the-dark.
And just because she is so darned cute ~ Loocie :) To me she always looks like she's depressed and needs some puppy Prozac.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I have much to be thankful for.
Pug hugs :)
