Scavenger Hunt

It’s been a while since I participated in Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  It’s hard to do those scavenger hunts with a gimpy foot.  I’ve done my best for this week’s prompts: eyes, upside down, from behind, sunshine, and cup.

Eyes:  There are a lot of eyes around here.  I’m sharing Bob, the Chinese goose, and Muffin (with her buck Billy eating with her).

Upside Down:  Jules has decided she should be an outside kitty.  I’ve been letting her out while I’m home during the day.  I want her to learn where to go and that she needs to stay away from the road.  She’s rolling everywhere out there and really enjoying herself.

From behind:  The sun is shining from behind the tree.  I thought it was a beautiful sight.  It’s also about as far as I’ve made it out to pasture on foot.

Sunshine:  There’s plenty of sunshine today!

Cup:  This one was pretty straightforward.  Since my initial teacup a couple of months ago when I wanted to photograph the chicks in one, my sister has presented me with several pretty cups.  This is the latest.  I really like it because it reminds me of my grandmother’s china when I was a kid.


I’m also sharing with Mosaic Monday, and Macro Monday II.

Scavenger Hunt

I’ve missed Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday the last couple of weeks, so I had to join in.  The topics this week:  pink, wheels, friend, emotion, and sweet.

Sweet:  I can’t think of anything as sweet as two kids sleeping together.

Pink:  Unless it’s two kids sleeping together using their maa as a pillow.  I just love those pink noses!  Okay, technically they are salmon or coral or some other derivative of pink, but they are cute!

Emotion:  I think Muffin looks the epitome of happiness!



Wheels:  We’re still wet and muddy, so these are the only wheels I could find.  You never know where you’ll see them around the house.

Friend:  My newest kitty friend, Jules, likes to play with it.  She likes to play with most anything.

This sweet looking girl is really a monster!  I guess that’s a good thing.

Another Rainy Day

We started off cloudy this morning, and the goats weren’t sure whether or not they should go out to pasture.

Goat pasture

They decided to hang out under the trees for a while before making that decision.  I don’t know why they think it’s a good idea to be under trees in a storm.  Really…

The storm clouds rolled in, the thunder and lightening came, and one particularly loud clap of thunder sent the brave smart goats back to the barn.

I also got my first lightning shot.  Granted, it’s a puny little bolt, but I still got it!


The rest decided to stay there and even took off farther out to pasture to eat.

Stella thinks all this rain makes the ground nice and soft and easy to dig in.



I kept watching as the storm rolled in.

Bob kept me company.



Finally, I went in and the rain came, and the silly goats came running up from pasture.

I have to say a big thank you to Cinnamon.

When I checked to make sure none of the little goats were left out there, Reva didn’t have her little doe with her.  I braced myself for walking in the pasture during the rain, looking for a kid when I saw Cinnamon coming up the lane with her twins and Reva’s doe.  Thank you, Cinnamon!
