Quality Time with the Goats

I have the feeling you’re going to get to see a lot of pictures from yesterday’s walk in pasture.  Today, I’m using them for Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt.  The items are:  pumpkin, paint, family, fun, and photographer’s choice.

I didn’t have a garden this year, so I didn’t have any pumpkins, but I do think Coral is as round as a pumpkin.

It made me smile to see all three of Kizzy’s daughters (her whole family) browsing side by side.

We can’t forget Kizzy’s grandkid, Gidget.  I think she looks like someone threw a bucket of paint on her.

Marley was having a lot of fun vacuuming up all the leaves.

For my choice, I chose Flower.

Why can’t I ever get those great sun shots when I’m doing human portraits?

Another Day is Done

I can’t believe we’re already at the end of the day.

At least I took some time to walk out in pasture with the goats (wearing a mask for my stupid allergies).  It was beautiful!

I thought I deserved a break after I made six batches of soap this morning:  lilac, Pan’s delight, plain, black amber and lavender, cranberry fig, baby powder and the new fragrance, spiced amber ale.

I’m still trying to keep up with all the milk in my fridge.  I’m trying new things tonight.  I’ll let you know what that is if it turns out. ;-)

Hopefully, it does.

Finally Friday

I’m so glad Friday is here.  I’ve been stretched way too thin since Bud’s illness.  I did go see him last night and today.  They are still trying to dissolve the stones using the acid.  The stones in a jar have reduced in size by about half, so hopefully he’ll be able to get the stones out of his urethra soon.  They’ve started taking him outside for a bit of exercise, and he was ready to go for another walk when I left him.  He’s also out of peanuts, so I told him I’d stop and get some more for my next visit.

I stayed home sick this morning, but I decided after the weather front moved through and my throat felt better and my sinuses improved, that it must have been allergies.  I was miserable for about twenty-four hours though.  Hopefully, it stays better.

I messed up a soap order I put in the mail.  I messed up the photo order I put in from my first family photo shoot on the farm.

I’m making progress, but I still need to finish editing the photos from last weekend too.  I’m really enjoying doing the portraits on my farm.

I am going to try to make the last of my soaps this weekend to be fully stocked for Christmas sales.

I’ll just have to update my website with numbers and add my new rich dark chocolate fragrance.  I think I’m also going to try the new free sample they just sent me (they are marketing geniuses), Spiced Amber Ale.  It seems like a great new man’s fragrance.
