Friday’s Hunt v4.18

27 Oct

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.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with R, glow, and vegetable. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything on the farm right now, but I will try to make sure to visit all participants. I have to say, the change to my teaching assignment this year is really killing me. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with Q: “Quid pro quo is a phrase used in English to mean an exchange of goods or services, in which one transfer is contingent upon the other; ‘a favour for a favour’.”  Here at Eden Hills there is an exchange of sweet feed for milk.  It seems to work quite well.

Animal:  I was impressed that Zinnia remembered her experiences in the MGIT program and wanted to come into the milk room.  We still have to work on the graceful exit, but I think she’ll be easy to milk after she has babies next year.

Orange:  Unfortunately, we’re coming to the end of the milking season.  I’m still getting about a quart a day, which is one (orange) Marvel Comic glass morning and night.  I’m making yogurt this week.  You can tell the machine is incubating because of the nice orange light.

Now it’s your turn!

Edit:  I have fixed next week’s items.  Starts with R, glow, and vegetable.  Sorry.  Work is killing me.

In the Buffer Strip

20 Sep

When I came home from work today, I saw that the buffer strip had been mowed for hay again.

Makes me glad I took a walk out there this weekend.

I got to see lots of butterflies and bees.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt this week.  I have the items listed at the top of my side bar.

As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with I, bowl, and desire. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything 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 H: Snickers didn’t show up for his egg the other morning after it rained, so I went looking for him.  I found him high up in the rafters of the barn hiding in the hay.

Snickers

Simple:  Just a simple daylily from my ditch.

Green:  Clover is feeling better, and since I sold her kids, I have her back with the herd.  To finish getting her strength back, she needs to eat a lot of green stuff.
