We’ll do that tomorrow even though the boys have been ready for quite some time!

I’m not happy that I don’t have spring break from work again this year, but I do have someone coming to help me.

My Own Paradise on Earth

I think this is the most beautiful sight in the world.

Well, maybe if they would turn around and show me their faces instead of their butts.

Oh well.  It’s still my own paradise, my Garden of Eden, my Xanadu.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday for the letter X.  X is for Xanadu.

A Goat’s Memory

Goats have very good memories.  Just ask Millie.  She’ll tell you that she’s still mad at me for having foot surgery and abandoning them most of the summer.

See the stink eye?  That’s a sure sign.  Also, when I try to pet her, she dodges my hand.  Seriously!

I was surprised when she decided to go out to pasture with me.

She was the only one in the barnyard.  She is starting to show her age a bit, but she can still make it out to pasture for part of the day.

Still, when we got out there, I saw she was looking for the rest of the herd rather than staying with me.  So much for thinking she was just walking with me.

Finally, we saw the rest of the herd and joined them.

I decided to sneak away since everyone was happily browsing.  But look who decided to follow me!  She really does love me!

Then the rest of the herd joined us.

I do love them.
