Green, Green Grass Scavenger Hunt

23 Mar

I’m late for Scavenger Hunt Sunday, so I’m combining it with Song-ography.  The scavenger hunt items are:  what I did today, green, errand, in my kitchen and something old.  We had our choice for Song-ography, so I chose The Green, Green Grass of Home written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.

I hope Millie isn’t mad that I’m using her for something old.  Really, she’s eleven, and I didn’t think she’d ever make it this far.  I’m certainly glad she has.



I do have her and Joe up north now.  They might think of it as a gray prison wall, but they do struggle with keeping up out in pasture.



They do still have green grass up there. And they even have old oak trees to stand beneath.

Grass under  hoof

What I did today was my first game of hide-n-goat-seek.  It took 2 1/2 hours, but I won.  Silly Sallie took Annie out to pasture and left her.  I’m certainly going to shut them in while I’m at work tomorrow because it’s supposed to rain all day.



While all the goats were lounging on the hill just down the lane, Moose went on an errand to see if I’d put out any yummy hay.  He sure enough found the bit I’d put out for Sallie.



Finally, I have a ton of eggs in my kitchen.  I think I need to put a notice on Facebook that I have eggs for sale.


Not even Snickers can keep up with the hens now.

I’m also sharing with Macro Monday and I Heart Macro.

    Enjoyed your photos! Sallie is naughty for leaving little Annie(adorable). Glad you’re locking them up tomorrow! 🙂 Our crazy Iowa weather.

      Sallie has done really well, and if it were still warm and sunny, I wouldn’t worry so much. She doesn’t need to be down there in the cool and damp though.

    These pictures are great! I’m getting so anxious for the rest of the kids to start coming! Good thing you found little Annie! Are you having to freeze eggs now?

      I am currently piling the eggs up. It’s been a busy week.

    Moose knows you too well! 2.5 hours is a long time to be looking for Annie! Glad you found her, and safe.

      He does. Moose always looks for the easy snack.

    Annie is. So cute. Hope all the eggs get sold otherwise it will be a very big omelette!

      I’ll take them to the farmer’s market once it starts, but it’s been a bit busy with the kidding lately.

      Thanks. We think she’s pretty awesome!

    Glad you found Annie but sorry it came at the expense of your well being. Love the stately old goats and hope you have drier weather soon.

    • Teresa March 24, 2015 at 3:56 pm #

      Thanks. We need the rain, but I do hope for a break while we kid next week. Then we’ll be ready for some April showers.

    Productive hens!
    Millie and Joe look good in these shots. Hope you get better soon.

    • Teresa March 25, 2015 at 7:28 pm #

      They have really started producing. Millie is good. Joe is happy. I’m not sure how long I can support them in the smaller setting where I can spoil them.
