Temperatures Rising

15 Dec

Well, after a record cold November, our temperatures have been creeping up, and now we’re warmer than average for this time of year.


It looks like it’s going to stick around for a while too.  There’s been blue skies and wonderful sunshine!


The water is completely open back there in the ditch.


Yes, I’m still complaining because, even though I enjoy it, it’s really hard on the animals when the temperatures change rapidly like this.


They do still enjoy getting to go out to pasture though.  It’s much tastier to have trees to snack on than just boring hay in the barnyard.


Although, I am also enjoying the goats and llamas not needing to be given hay yet.

They are happy to be out there in pasture most of the day.

Maybeline and Odie

Even though it does look like Maybeline and Odie are rather irritated with the gate being shut.

Oh well.  If they did a better job guarding the goats, I wouldn’t have had to put the fence up.


That’s My Glove!

14 Dec

I was just trying to pet Cookie.


I think she’s gotten spoiled with all the peanut treats (and copper capsules hidden in peanuts) lately.

I guess that’s not a bad thing,

but I wish she wouldn’t try eating my glove.

I guess that means I should give her more peanuts.

Knitting Project #2

13 Dec

I finished my second knitting project.

This one is special because it was done as a gift.

I’m going to be a great-aunt in April!

I might even have time to knit something else for the baby before then.
