Just a Quick Post

My new teaching position has me quite busy trying to provide a quality education to my students, so I am running behind.  I’m just sharing a photo of my Kiss Me Coral and Marley.  They are quite different in size.

They are both pretty quirky though.  Coral is sweet and loves her kisses.  Marley likes to follow me and be my shadow.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday for the letter Q.  Q is for quite, quality, and quirky.

Scavenger Hunt

This week, the topics for Scavenger Hunt Sunday are:  beverage, snuggle, thick, behind the lens, and where were you.  I’m still getting used to the new phone, and I still don’t like taking pictures with the phone, but I’m now on Instagram as EdenHillsPerin.  The first two pictures are from my phone.

Beverage:  We made another batch of mead.  It’s down in the basement happily fermenting.  Of course, it will be another three months before it’s bottled and then two years before it’s ready to drink.  You just can’t rush a good mead.

Snuggle:  Since Snickers has been ill, he’s become quite the snuggler.  I can’t sit down without him jumping on my lap.  Most times, I’m good with that.

Thick: Last week, I showed you some of my round girls.  I’m afraid we’ll have some triplets this March (Blaze?).  Other goats are just thick (Coral).

Or maybe I should say big boned or fluffy.    Whatever I call it, there’s just more of her to love!

Behind the lens:  I might be cheating on this one, but I love this shot of Millie’s eye.  I was really surprised to see her iris shaped like a heart.  I’d guess it’s from the changing light of the flash in a fairly dark building.  Whatever the reason, it’s pretty cool.

Where were you: I’m only ever about two places: work and my farm.  Work is boring and no fun, so I’m sharing my farm, of course!  I’ll remind you once again that home is where the goat is, whether we’re in the barn or outside basking!

Stormy needs to be a little thicker if you ask me.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a soap extravaganza giveaway that I’m participating in, so be sure to come back for eight chances to win some soap!

I’m sharing with Scavenger Hunt Sunday,  Shadow Shot Sunday, Mandarin Orange Monday, and Ruby Tuesday 2.

Scavenger Hunt

This week should have been easy to do the scavenger hunt.  The words were: three, hand(s), fence cuddly and sign. I really struggled with it though.  Here’s my best efforts.

Three:  We have two sets of triplets running around right now.  I think Sugar did a pretty good job of wrangling her babies for a photo shoot.  She also is the winner of the Best Mom award for actually raising all three on her own.

Litha’s kids are all over the place.  That’s kind of how they are all the time.  They have, um, well, a lot of personality.

Hand:  This is Litha’s boy, Robbie.  He likes to give me a hand whenever I’m feeding Reva her bottle.  To keep him for pushing his sister around, I usually give him a hand in turn and scratch between his horns for him.

Think he likes it?

Cuddly:  Coral is my sweet cuddly girl.  She has been from the moment she was born.  It’s looking like she didn’t get bred last winter.  That’s good.  I didn’t want her bred after having the C-section last year, but I put her in with Fionn for about two weeks, and it was possible she could have been bred.

Here’s another shot for cuddly.  Muffin (mom in back) and Jelly (daughter in front) are always curled up together to sleep.  Goats are really neat because they maintain those great family bonds for their whole lives.

Fence:  Another bird shot.  I really seem to be turning into a bird blog.  I have no idea what this one is, but it was flying along the fence just in front of me for quite some distance.

Sign:  I mentioned that I wanted to try and switch bird foods to attract some goldfinches.  I think this is a pretty good sign that my plan worked.

At one point there were three males and two females all out there at the same time.

I hope you all have a great week!
