Bob, Birds, and Blooms

7 May

I wanted to go for a walk in pasture again, in order to try and find birds to share. My first challenge was making it down the lane and past the gosling and its adoptive parents.  The little one is still here so far!

Luckily, the bluebird couple were hanging out.  This picture is SOOC.  I left it this way to show you how gray we are.  It’s been smoky all day.  We had air quality warnings this morning because of the smoke coming for the wildfires in Canada and Minnesota.

For some reason, I can never seem to get close to the birds. I was trying to sneak just a little closer for an image, but I had no luck.

I’m thinking Bob might have something to do with that.  He’s my little pasture kitty.

Back in the yard, I’ve discovered a couple of flowers the goats haven’t eaten!

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

16 Apr

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are: outside, collection, tiny, hair and hungry.

For some reason, Haley’s boys always think they are hungry.  Really.  Ask them.  They will tell you that they are starving despite being the fattest kids on the farm.

For some reason, my box has hair all over it.  I wonder why.

Maybe we should ask Snickers.  He’s decided it makes a perfect bed.

I seem to have a collection of tea cups.  My sister has gifted me with several.  I do like them.

I dried my laundry outside on the line for the first time this year today.  In case you can’t tell, we were once again very windy.

At least it’s warm (all right, it’s hot).  That has the flowers blooming.  I found some tiny violets outside my fence.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt, it’s open until Sunday evening.  The items are at the top of my sidebar.

I’m also sharing with Saturday’s Critters, Camera Critters, and Shadow Shot Sunday.

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.
