Vacuum packed & froze the pull pork that I made yesterday for quick meals at a later date.

Made Carne Gasada for supper the next few nights as another cold front is suppose to arrive tomorrow. I made ranch rice to go along with it.

Fed the cattle & put out another roll of hay.

My wife hates me with beard and I hate spending $3+ on razor cartridges. I had been using Harry's but their new design blades are terrible. So I bought an old school double edge safety razor. $20 for 120 new blades.

First shave was OK but this will take some getting used to.

Picked up the 12 bags of fertilizer & got it spread as we are expecting rain tonight.

Refilled the redbird feeders & put out another seed block.

Vacuumed my Jeep & had Mrs. Ranch wash Dieter's 'mudroom' (canvas back seat cover). At least now it doesn't smell so doggy, LOL!!!

Cleaned up the the the garage & vacuumed it in preparation for winter. Also washed the table/chairs so were ready to go. Next up is cleaning & getting the greenhouse ready for the cold weather.

Fed the cattle.

Mrs. Ranch made a dewberry pie from our stash of berries in the freezer.

The .6 rain last night helped pack the sand I have been putting on the levee around the pond that I have been working on for the last three days.Made the mistake of showing the wife Ranch's recipe for Chocolate Chip Cheer Bars and will buy needed ingredients when we go shopping later today.

Picked up my commuter-coffin (little car to get to work) from getting the exhaust pipe replaced / repaired. The receipt & statement of work includes 1.5 pages of things they recommend but did not fix this time - that list totals $3138.96. I spent $4000 on the car from a dealership 4 years ago.

Made bread.

Seasoned up a thick sirloin that I'll smoke for our supper. Mrs. Ranch is making 2X baked potatoes to go with it.

Puttered in the garden & then watered it.

Fed the cattle.
