Random Stuff

2 Jun

Unlike the winter when you get lots of posts of cats and the dog, I am way too busy to get everything on the blog now.

Here’s a little bit of everything.  A week or so ago, my son went mushroom hunting.  He was rather successful.

I fixed them and froze them for him.  Of course, I did have to sample a little while I was preparing them.

The goslings are doing well.  They have one very good protective mama.  Every time I go out there, she’s hissing at me.

They wanted to play in the pool, but I do not want any drowned goslings, so the pool is drained until they get bigger.  I might have to find a smaller tub for them to play in though.

Aurora still likes getting a bit of llama feed when I can find a time to feed her without everyone else stealing it.  Although, she’s not as friendly about letting me feel her back to check her weight. I managed to do it though, and she’s still doing well.

The goats are spending almost all day out in pasture.  As soon as I get home from work (one more week and one day), I change clothes and rush out to check on them.

I’m hoping to find Hera and not with her head in the fence.  She’s been better, but I swear this girl is really testing me.  And I can’t catch her to put the horn apparatus back on.  I wouldn’t be able to hold her if I did catch her.  I might have to try to arrange some help for that.

I had just checked her, and then she did this.

Of course, when I was rushing to check Hera, I saw my first bobolink of the year when I didn’t have my camera with me.  At least I did have it for the bluebird.

Some scatty hen is still free ranging whenever she wants.

There’s so much going on this time of year that I hardly even have time to sit down and put me feet up.

But when I do, I have a nice footstool.  And here’s a couple of bonus goat pictures.

Watching Out the Window

29 May

I love all the windows in my house, and they are great for taking pictures of birds.

But they do distort and get dirty and I’m usually not happy with the pictures I take through the windows.

Although, the windows I had repaced let me take some pretty good shots.

I’ve decided to replace the rest of my downstairs windows this summer.  Now it’s not just for the photography.  I love being able to open windows.  The breeze feels nice, and that’s not something I’ve been able to do for the first twenty years I’ve lived here.

I love that the windows can open in for cleaning.  I have actually washed the new windows already!  They are also double hung, so I can put the screens on top.  The animals don’t rip the screens up and I can open it for the cats to come in.

Replacing my windows means I need to do some massive cleaning though.  I have to do something with all the plants and I also have to clean off the front porch since the windows between it and the house are also getting replaced.  The porch doesn’t stop as much wind as you might think.

I can hardly wait to have the entire downstairs open!
