To say the geese are happy to have water in their little pools in the pasture after almost ten months might be an understatement.

We finally have had a couple of days without rain, so I thought I’d go check out the pasture. It certainly looks like spring is way behind this year.
I wanted to see how green it was and check fence. Of course, the first thing I noticed was a squirrel. From the pile of walnut shells beneath the tree, I’d say this has been his home all winter.
There is water in the waterways. That’s a relief.
There isn’t a lot of water in there yet, but we’re supposed to have rain several days this coming week too.
I have a lot of old trees along the waterway, but it doesn’t look like they have realized it’s spring yet. Hopefully today’s sunshine will help.
I had to check along my fences too. I did find a panel that must have been blown down, so I’ll have to repair it before I turn goats out.
The grass is turning green, especially where the hay was made. It doesn’t have the tall dead grass on it.
The geese are enjoying the green by the old fence.
Does it look like this one is smiling at me?
The boys are also enjoying the grass. They have been turned out to the small front pasture.
Cinnamon doesn’t seem to think it’s fair that the boys have nice grass and she’s in the muddy barnyard.
I’m linking to Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday where the topics are: glow, old, shadow, spring, and smile. I’m also sharing with Shadow Shot Sunday2, Weekend Reflection, Weekly Top Shot, and Mosaic Monday.

1. It was beautiful out today. It was perfect for spending time with the goats and walking in the pasture. I realized how much we are still in an extreme drought. Even though there’s still water in places, it’s horribly dry back there yet. I’m grateful for the rain we’re supposed to get tomorrow.
2. I trimmed hooves yesterday (13 goats) and today (11 goats), and I still have several (14 goats) to do. I think I’ll have to have my son’s help with the remaining goats because they are, um, shall we say,
brats strong spirited. Of course, the naughtiest goat so far is little Miss Mary. Really. The easiest was probably Dolly.
3. I have my first book signing next Saturday. I’m a bit nervous. I have decided I’m not very good at signing books. It’s like someone handing me their high school yearbook to sign, but I never went to school with them. If you didn’t know I had a novel published, you can check it out HERE.)
4. I have a new favorite fragrance for my soaps. I call it Full Moon, and I really took it outside on Wednesday night and charged it with the moon’s energy.
5. I think I’m going to have my heart broken by some sweet little bottle kids. I had planned on taking them to sell this weekend, but then I realized it was Easter weekend, which would mean no sale. Next weekend is the book signing. That means I’m really going to fall in love with them before I can sell them.
