Valentine Scavenger Hunt

This week for Scavenger Hunt Sunday, we have the following items:  writing, curly, love, my view, and pattern.

Every time we get those warm days, I think spring.  When it turns cold again, I’m wishing for warm weather.  That means I had to get another boquet of flowers to get me through.

Pattern:  Love the pattern in this flower.

My view:  It’s all about the flowers this week.

Love:  I love this one!  The wine, I mean.  It’s sweet plum that we made in 2013.  It’s really improved with age, and I liked it before.

Curly:  These leaves had the best curl to them.

Writing:  Happy Valentine’s Day!  I know I’m late, but I shared it on my Facebook photography page in a more timely manner.

A Stroll in the Pasture Scavenger Hunt

Today’s topics for Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday are:  color, view, stroll, outfit, and blocks.

I am so excited that I got my old barnyard sneakers on.  It’s the first I’ve worn them as part of my outfit since the toe surgery.  Yeah, they might have had a few cobwebs on them.


I went outside, and there was a bright splash of color before I even got off my deck.  I bought a fall floral arrangement to use in my mini photo shoots at the end of the month.

Since I had those more sturdy shoes, I decided to take a stroll in the pasture.    The goats aren’t used to seeing me out there anymore.

These are just a few of the things I got to view out there today.

Finally, one of my favorite rocks out in pasture (I have quite a few favorites) is a conglomerate rock.  I love that it’s made up of so many stones as little building blocks.

I’m working hard to get caught up visiting people again.  I don’t know how I get so far behind, but I’m trying.

Muffin’s Kids and Jules

Finally, the waiting for Muffin is over.  Of course, she waited until evening to show true signs of labor and bed was out of the question.  Finally, at nearly one in the morning (Thursday) I realized her water had broken, but I wasn’t exactly sure how long before.  I checked, and she was open with a kid right there.  I watched and she pushed and strained, and nothing seemed to be happening.  I decided to pull it (I might have been a tad impatient considering the time).  I couldn’t get it.  The feet were there.  The nose was there, but that kid was not moving.  I tried several more times and then had my son come hold her.  I still couldn’t get it.  I gave up and called the vet.  Of course, that works like magic.  I tried again when I got off the phone, and sure enough, I managed to get the kid this time. (Sorry for waking you Dr. Rick.)  The first one was a buck.



The second was a doe.

I got my beautiful little wattled kids from Muffin, just like I wanted.  I think I’ll keep her buck, Billy, to replace Boeris.  Hopefully, he won’t produce the big heads his dad does.  I planned on keeping her girl, but she has an entropion eye.

This is the first one I’ve had this year (thank goodness).  It’s an easy fix with a clip, and I haven’t decided it will stop me from keeping her.  I just need to get a buck that doesn’t throw this defect.

Jules was sent to the vet on Tuesday and got fixed.  She came home on Wednesday.  By the time I got home from work and did chores, she was down to one stitch left in her incision.  Silly cat.  I couldn’t get the cone of shame to stay on her.  Finally I put a band-aid on and waited for morning.

She went back to the vet Thursday morning and had to stay overnight again to be sedated and re-stitched up.  Poor baby.  Hopefully, the cone she’s sporting this time will prevent any more shenanigans.

Geez.  My cat can’t even get fixed without it being dramatic.
