Old Man Winter

Old Man Winter showed up this morning, and we had an early out from school.  I’m glad I got home in plenty of time before the roads got too bad.  The goats were all in the barn.

Some have decided to curl up and take a nap while they wait for the storm to end.

Others are enjoying some quality family time.

We dont’ have too much snow yet, but it’s still coming down.  The fence post is just slightly covered.

Same with the African goose.

If we get a lot, I won’t be able to see the Embden geese with their orange bills tucked in.

Hopefully, it won’t be too bad, but they’re predicting another storm for this weekend.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday where the letter is O.  O is for Old Man Winter.  I’m also sharing with Good Fences.

Nothing New

There’s nothing new going on here.  I work every day and come home to do chores.

It’s still really cold, which we’d like to see end.

The geese seem to have realized they were a bit optimistic because I haven’t found any new eggs for a while.

They’re all keeping their beaks tucked under their wings again.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday for the letter N.  N is for nothing new.

Maybe, Just Maybe

I’m hoping that the groundhog was wrong and spring is just around the corner.  I have evidence that this might be so.  The geese have been fighting and acting all crazy for the last week.  Look what I found today!

My first goose egg of the season.

It’s not just the geese.  Look at the fur on Marley’s horn.  I have several goats losing their undercoats.

Some of the girls having spring break babies are getting large too.

I’m hoping Litha stops at triplets.  Actually, I’m thinking twins would be perfect.  I’m a little worried about her twin sister, Stormy, because she doesn’t look pregnant.

Last time Stormy didn’t look pregnant, she had triplets too.  At any rate, I’m thinking the groundhog (and accuweather’s long range forecast) might just be wrong.  A girl can hope anyhow.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday where the letter is M.  M is for maybe and Marley.
