Spring Scavenger Hunt

20 Mar

This week’s items for Scavenger Hunt Sunday are: stairs, flower, green, hair, and how you feel today.

Flower:  It’s spring!  I am thrilled that it’s the first day of spring.  Of course, I no longer have flowers in my yard because of goats, but I did stop I bring some home last weekend.  I mistakenly thought I’d have time to take some pictures.  I quickly snapped this one today.


Hair:  Goats are mammals.  That means they have hair.  Blaze’s babies are doing well.  I love watching them bounce and play now.  They are really starting to join their mom in browsing around the yard.

Stairs:  One of their favorite places to sleep is on the stairs under my deck (which really annoys their mom), but I didn’t get a picture of that.  Instead, you get Bob following me up the deck stairs after I was checking goats.

Green:  I am still trying to get caught up in my soap making.  I had to move the soap I made last weekend (the Kentish rain is blue and green; plain is, well, plain) because I made another four batches between goat checks this morning.

How I Feel Today:  Um.  I’m loving my life today.  It’s crazy.  I’m out checking goats and new kids.  I’m totally sleep deprived.  I’m enjoying the beautiful spring weather.  I’m looking forward to spring soap sales and getting my soap room finished soon.

I’m mostly exhausted though, and I’m really grateful to my mom for making me some chocolate chip cookies.   They might get me through this week of kidding.

If you’d like to join me for Friday’s Hunt, I have the list for next week at the top of my side bar.

Along with Scavenger Hunt Sunday, I’m sharing with Fun Friday Favorites, Mosaic Monday, Macro Monday, and Monday Mellow Yellows.

    Hi! I found you by mistake trying to google a Texas vineyard by the same name. Now I look forward to seeing what’s going on with your menagerie! Who knew that goats were so adorable?!?

    Duchess and Duke are just the cutest little critters ever! and great shots of Bob. I hope life gives you a break soon….to smell (and enjoy) the flowers. Thanks for sharing with Fun Friday Favourites.

      We have several goats to kid this week, but then I’ll have a break until June. It might be busy, but I’ll at least get to sleep all night.

    You have a really great group of pictures! – Bob is looking really good! And I dint think Duke and Duchess could be any cuter.

      Blaze seems to have a way of giving me those to-die-for cute kids.

      Thanks, Eileen. There’s nothing like mom’s chocolate chip cookies!

    Spring has officially arrived but not here ! I only have a lot of cat hairs because it is the season to get rid of the winter fur and my mood deep in the basement ! The little goats cheered me up !

    • Teresa March 21, 2016 at 11:31 am #

      Hopefully you get some warmth and sun and good spirits soon! In the meantime, I’m sure we’ll have lots more kids coming and pictures to share.

    The baby goats look soft to touch, I’m wondering if this is the case or if they have coarse hair? Your photos are the closest I’ve been to goats and I’m starting to get the urge to want to touch them – must be the maternal instinct.
    Mom’s always surprise daughters with treats when they need them, I know, I’ve done it many times. Of course, I’ve been the recipient of goodies when I needed a lift too.

      The goats really do have soft fur. They are perfect for snuggling!

    How sweet of your mom to be sure you’re eating! Great shots of Bob. Pretty soap! Are you able to work in your new soap room now?

    • Teresa March 23, 2016 at 10:11 am #

      Mom is wonderful! The soap room is still in progress. (sigh)
