Friday’s Hunt v1.19

6 May

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.  I’m excited for week nineteen!  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 T, Week’s Favorite, and evening.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with S: I’ve always thought those long necks folded into an S shape.

Goose S_6108ews

Lucy has had horrible luck (or no skill) keeping goslings alive.  Where they are at, they keep falling off the ledge, and she refuses to left the remaining eggs in the nest.  I thought the other geese would take care of them, but they were no better at taking care of them.

Well, she gave me one more surprise a couple of nights ago, and so far the other geese are taking care of it because she’s still sitting on a couple of eggs.  I hope they manage to keep this one alive.

Week’s Favorite:  I was very excited when I got my mail the other day and found a package from Claire.  She made me a little square she knitted from the yarn she spun from Llenny’s fleece.

She also made me this lovely headband/ear warmer.  I love it!

Smile:  The headband and the gosling both made me smile, but I’ll share my go-to dude for smiles, Sam.  He makes me smile with his elf face, and I swear he’s always smiling at me.  You know, that, “Ha, ha, you can’t touch me!” kind of smile.

Friday’s Hunt v1.18

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.  I’m excited for week eighteen!  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 S, Week’s Favorite, and smile.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with R:  I thought this tree was perfect for a lower case letter r.  Of course, the goats wanted to come help me when I went out to photograph it.  They like to help like that.

We’ve had some nice rains this week.  It’s making the grass nice and green.  I’m sure the robin likes the wet ground for catching worms.

Week’s Favorite:  Even though the crab apple blossoms are past their prime, I really liked this picture.  It reminds me that I should take my camera off its auto settings more often.

Texture:  Each of the animals have their own unique texture.  Llenny’s wool is amazingly soft.  I have an e-mail in to the guy who sheared him last year, but I haven’t heard back from him yet.  I don’t know who I’ll get to shear him if I can’t get this guy.

Bud has short hair.  He had a visit with the vet this week because he was straining to urinate.  It seems that with the constant dripping after the bladder marsupialization, he has some scald.  It was scabbing over.  We have it open and clean, and I have a spray to try and promote healing.  Poor boy.

Friday’s Hunt v1.17

22 Apr

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.  I’m excited for week seventeen!  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 R, Week’s Favorite, and texture.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with Q:  I was frantically wandering the farm trying to find the letter Q when I had an epiphany–the windmill!  Surely that looks like the letter Q.

I also have our wonderful herd queen, Minnie Pearl.  I love this girl so much.

It’s really hard for me to believe that she (and Meg) are twelve.  Minnie was the first goat I ever milked.  She was always so easy.  No training. No fuss or muss.  She just let me milk her.

Week’s Favorite:  Of course, I have a strict rule about yard goats, but I just didn’t want to see the young bucks smashed by the big boys, so Sam and Xerxes are in the yard.  There’s just so much I love in that picture: goats, green grass, flowering fruit trees, the heady scent of their blooms mingling with the magnolia, the clothes line for great smelling laundry.  I think it’s perfect for saying “Happy Earth Day!”

At Rest:  For some reason, the boys like this brick thing in front of my deck.  They were at rest when I got home the other day, and I just had to take a picture.
