Random Stuff

5 Jun

I let the geese out when I got the door fixed to shut the chickens in the coop at night.  They are staying close to the barnyard, but they are all still here.  They are really enjoying the pool since we’ve been really hot and humid the last few days.

Bob has been lazy and napping on the patio most of the time.


Sky has decided that air conditioning is really pretty awesome.


He could get used to it.

Friday’s Hunt v3.22

2 Jun

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. 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 W, Week’s Favorite, and pastel. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with V:  I have actually had several V goats:  Val, Vance, Vanilla, Vashti, Velma, Velvet, Vern, Veronica, Vesta, Victor, Victoria, Victoria, Vince, Vinegar, Violet, Virgil, and Vixen.  I still have the ones in bold print.  I will soon have another one or two (but probably not three).  I inadvertently gave Vinnie’s first baby a V name (Victoria) and figured I should keep it up.  Although, it is starting to get challenging to find new ones.

Week’s Favorite:  My Annie and her little Sweet Caroline has to be the favorite.  I’m done with first time moms for the year.  That’s always a good thing to celebrate!

Inch:  Snickers was enjoying lounging on the deck.  I believe the board he’s on is a 1 inch by 6 inch.

Now it’s your turn!

Scenes From Around the Farm

27 May

We’ve had much better weather the last part of this week, and it’s made me want to go walking in pasture.

I was rewarded with seeing the bobolinks again.


I also got to see a squirrel.  I know.  They’re not exactly exotic, but I always enjoy their chattering.

I was surprised that the swallows let me get this close.  They are usually flying all over.

There’s cottonwood fluff floating around everywhere in the Back Forty right now.

Cinnamon and her boy were enjoying the grass yesterday evening.

Snickers was happily lounging on the deck.  His nose is really starting to look better.  Thankfully.


Of course, we had today’s beautiful weather interrupted by another series of storms coming through.

That means I still need to mow my yard, and I still don’t have my garden in.
