Friday’s Hunt v3.24

16 Jun

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt. I want to thank everyone who joined in last week. I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with Y, Week’s Favorite, and splash. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with X:  Believe it or not, I’ve had quite a few goats whose names started with X.  Blogging might have everything to do with that.  It is x-tremely important to note that it is completely x-ceptable to cheat on the letter X.   My goats: Xander, Xavier, Xena, Xerxes, Ximon.  Of course, I’m sharing Xerxes, who is the only one still here.

Week’s Favorite:  When I was trying to find the orioles’ nest, I ran into this fellow.  As unafraid as he was, it makes me wonder if it’s the one who was hanging out in the chicken coop.

Insect:  I know this jumping spider isn’t really an insect, but hopefully, he’s helping to keep them out of my soap room.

This bee is an insect.  I don’t want to get any closer to him.

Before I turn it over to you, I have a quick question as we’re nearing the end of round three.  Does everyone want to continue?  I’m enjoying it and love visiting your posts.  It’s about the only blog visiting I do these days since life has gotten so crazy.  I’m up for it if you are.  Any suggestions for changes/improvements (besides taking X out of the alphabet)?

Now it’s your turn!

Updated to add next week’s items. (Sorry)

Scenes From Around the Farm

27 May

We’ve had much better weather the last part of this week, and it’s made me want to go walking in pasture.

I was rewarded with seeing the bobolinks again.

I also got to see a squirrel.  I know.  They’re not exactly exotic, but I always enjoy their chattering.

I was surprised that the swallows let me get this close.  They are usually flying all over.

There’s cottonwood fluff floating around everywhere in the Back Forty right now.

Cinnamon and her boy were enjoying the grass yesterday evening.

Snickers was happily lounging on the deck.  His nose is really starting to look better.  Thankfully.

Of course, we had today’s beautiful weather interrupted by another series of storms coming through.

That means I still need to mow my yard, and I still don’t have my garden in.

Here’s a few of the critters I’ve seen around the farm lately.

Hope you have had a very happy Earth Day!
