July at Eden Hills

I can’t believe we’re almost through the month of July. Here’s what’s going on around here.  Jules is lounging around being a typical cat.



Llenny is back out in pasture.  I can already see how much his wool has grown.



They’re still doing dirt work.  I think the building pad should be finished tomorrow.

I still have yard goats.

I did put Kizzy back with everyone else because she was unhappy and fighting through the fence.  It’s hard to gain weight that way.  I will say, I think she looks better after just getting and evening of rest.

Sadly, it looks like the hay will still be next week.  It might have something to do with all the dirt work now.

I will feel much better when we get my barn filled up.

Sharing with Jenny Matlock for Alphabe-Thursday.  This week is the letter J.  J is for July.

Iowa City

I wasn’t going to share any of my pictures from Iowa City because they really have nothing to do with the farm, but it’s Alphabe-Thursday‘s letter I.  That means I have to share some of my first efforts at street photography in beautiful Iowa City.

Hazel is Killing Me

Hilda and Hazel are Helen’s girls that I weaned and put with Millie and my new moms.  Well, Hazel is killing me.

They are supposed to be on the same side of the fence.  Don’t give me that sweet innocent look, Hazel.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve chased that little girl up and down the fence line through thistles and nettles, tripping on the tall grass as she’s frantically yelling and trying to figure out how to get back in while the sun is setting and thunder and lightning are approaching.  And sometimes, just sometimes when it’s the middle of a nice afternoon, I ignore her being out and when I come back, she’s looking all sweet and innocent on the right side of the fence.

You’re killing me Hazel.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday where the letter this week is H.  H is for Hazel (and Hilda).
