Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are: low angle, homemade, light, waiting, and a chore.

A chore:  Every day, I do chores on the farm.  One of those chores is milking twice a day.  My newest milking doe is Dolly; although, she’s not actually new to milking.  The last time I milked her was five years ago, and I only did it a few times because she had a sore on her teat from one of her babies gnawing instead of sucking.  Well, she still has scar tissue from that injury. She has been amazing to milk though!

Waiting:  The hay wagon was parked up north waiting its turn to be pulled to the barn for unloading. It makes me chuckle to see it has its own little mini-pasture on top.

Light:  I like the rim light that emphasizes Llenny’s long lashes and fuzzy ears.

Homemade:  My garden is producing!  That means a lunch of homemade zucchini patties with a homemade sauce and a homegrown tomato sandwich on my homemade bread left over from the market.

Low angle:  When your subject is up in the rafters, you have to shoot from a low angle.  Not surprisingly, when I went out to the barn the next day, this nest of barn swallows was empty.

Shortly after Llenny was sheared, I made a trip to the nearby town of Maxwell.

There is a place there called C & M Acres, which is an alpaca farm.

They took his fleece and will wash it and turn it into roving.  Then I’ll be able to sell the roving at the farmer’s market or on my website.  I have to say, this really made me want to find a lady llama for Llenny.

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.
