Gorgeous Weather Weekend

30 Jan

We have a perfect weather weekend!  It’s sunny and not windy.  The temperatures are warm.  Everyone was enjoying the weather, including me!

It also means Helen’s arthritis isn’t bothering as much.  She was actually lying down sleeping quite soundly when I got home yesterday.

Today she’s been dead to the world!  So glad she’s finally getting some good rest.

The goats were basking and just enjoying being out.  Actually, they turned crazy and have been beating up gates and fences and each other and generally driving me crazy.  I am happy to report that so far all the goats are doing well after getting into the grain in the barn.

I’ve seen a couple with diarrhea, which means they got too much at once, but they are still passing it, so that’s a good thing.  I’ll be confident they are all fine in another day.

With the wonderful weather, even the common sparrows are beautiful.

We’re enjoying the weather this weekend because we’re supposed to get a winter storm and turn cold again by Tuesday.  Hope you all have a great weekend.

If you want to join us, there’s still time to link up to Friday’s Hunt.

I’m sharing today with Skywatch Friday, SOOC Sunday, Shadow Shot Sunday, Saturday’s Critters, and Bird d’Pot.

    Yes, enjoy the sun while it’s shining. The goats have such pretty beards! One would think they had recently been to the salon!

      Goats do like to stay neat and clean. Sam has a burr in his bangs and beard, and it’s driving me crazy, but he won’t let me take them out.

    Yay glad for Helen to be sleeping so peacefully. And nice weather sure does make everything more beautiful and cheerful 🙂

    I just wanted to tell you, I love your posts, you really brighten my day! It’s been nice here too (Oklahoma) I have spent the last few days putting up a new pen for Mikey, as Molly is due next month. He is not happy! Lol. Have a great weekend!!

    • Teresa January 30, 2016 at 9:54 pm #

      It’s always busy preparing for the little ones. Good luck! Thanks for your kind words.

    That’s a beautiful winter view, and those goats are just too cute for words!!

    • Teresa January 30, 2016 at 9:55 pm #

      Thanks. As naughty as they have been, they have to look cute so I forgive them. LOL

    So love the faces of your goats. Bud’s expression is adorable. Great to see you are still getting sparrows. They have diminished significantly in my peninsula world.

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 8:30 am #

      We have tons of sparrows. Bud was just scratching his face. He’s so funny.

    Hello!:) Lovely photos of your goats. I’m pleased that Helen is feeling better.Arthritis is so painful! Cute goose photo, and sparrow images.

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 8:30 am #

      She is doing so much better. I’m really glad the vet gave me these anti-inflammatory meds.

  8. Bob Bushell January 31, 2016 at 3:37 am #

    Beautiful images, I love them.

  9. Gattina January 31, 2016 at 4:45 am #

    You are lucky ! We have rain and storm and all I can do is take pictures of my cats !

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 8:31 am #

      We have rain today. Dry tomorrow. Then it’s blizzard conditions. It was really nice to be out enjoying it yesterday.

    Hello, I am glad Helen is getting some rest. All your goats are just adorable. The goose is cute too, great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 8:31 am #

      It is a relief to see her sleeping so soundly. Thank you for hosting each week.

    Hooray for good weather and feeling good (Helen!) Love that picture of her and her baby…so sweet!

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 8:32 am #

      Helen is happy to be in a place with no other big goats. It’s a lot easier for her to relax.

  12. magicalmysticalteacher January 31, 2016 at 7:48 am #

    Oh, the poor goose, trying to keep its feet warm!

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 8:32 am #

      We decided long ago the geese must have rubber feet. They’ll play in a pool of ice water. This one was just stretching.

  13. EG CameraGirl January 31, 2016 at 8:48 am #

    Glad you are experiencing some nice weather and the Helen is getting some much needed sleep!

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 8:52 am #

      It was beautiful. I am really grateful Helen is doing better.

  14. yogiabb January 31, 2016 at 12:03 pm #

    We are having some very warm weather ourselves and are really enjoying it,

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 12:47 pm #

      That’s good! Hope the blizzard heading our way misses you. Have a good week!

  15. Freda Mans January 31, 2016 at 12:51 pm #

    So nice to see Helen getting some much needed rest. She looks so peaceful.

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 12:54 pm #

      She is certainly enjoying some good sleep. She’s getting up and down really well.

  16. Anni @ I'd Rather B Birdin' January 31, 2016 at 3:12 pm #

    It’s supposed to turn cold here in South Texas too….but at least no snow. lol

    Love the bird images, but you know by now I so enjoy your goat images too. That 2nd one down from the top is my absolute favorite today.

    Thanks so much for using the linking tool this weekend at I’d Rather B Birdin’…it’s appreciated!!!

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 3:15 pm #

      Thanks, Anni. I’m just glad you appreciate my mixed bag of images. LOL

    glad the corn-munchers are doing okay!

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 4:37 pm #

      Me too. It is quite a relief!

  18. Jeanne January 31, 2016 at 7:26 pm #

    All of your pictures are great! I chuckled when I saw the top of Bud’s head showing as I scrolled through them – I recognized him by just the very top of his head! He’s so cute! I’m so glad the corn munchers are doing well!

    • Teresa January 31, 2016 at 7:42 pm #

      Bud is pretty recognizable with no horns. He’s also pretty sweet. It is a relief that everyone is doing well.

  19. Marie-AZ February 1, 2016 at 9:18 am #

    All the animals are so adorable! How wonderful it must be to have them around, and to be able to photograph them whenever you want, as well as love and care for them! Poor little Helen having arthritis…I feel her pain!

    • Teresa February 1, 2016 at 1:13 pm #

      Helen is doing amazingly well with the meds, which is a huge relief.

  20. pattisj February 3, 2016 at 11:37 pm #

    I’m glad Helen’s resting well. The days are getting a wee bit longer each day, a pleasant trend.

    • Teresa February 4, 2016 at 6:41 pm #

      It is great to have longer days! Helen is doing amazingly well.
