Good. Random. Fun. Weekend

1 May

The Good:  Sunshine!  After so many rainy days this week and rain all day yesterday and today, I finally saw a bit of sunshine this evening.


Of course, it’s supposed to warm up and be sunny all week when I’m at work.

At least the days are longer, so I can hopefully get some stuff done in the evenings.


The Random:  My sister stopped by today and gave me a cup and saucer.  I think it’s an adorable set.


The Fun:  Today, I made three batches of soap because I almost ran out over the weekend.  Now they just need to cure for three weeks.

I also made my first batch of insect repellent lotion bars.  I almost want bug season to be here so I can try it.

I do hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The list for this week is at the top of my sidebar.

Wishes and Dreams

30 Apr

How I do wish this cute little guy was a girl.  I would keep him in a heartbeat.



My dream of having my on-farm market is one step closer to being a dream come true.  I had a wonderful turnout for the open farm.  Hopefully, everyone enjoyed it and tells their friends and neighbors about me.  Now I’m busy restocking and making new things for my bath and body section.

I’m sharing today with Saturday’s Critters.

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

Friday’s Hunt v1.18

29 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 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.



Now it’s your turn!

I’m also sharing with Random 5 Friday, Fun Friday Favorites, and Willy Nilly Friday.
