Perfection

13 Apr

This evening’s weather was perfect.

I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Although I’m not sure someone was too happy about me tramping through his back yard.

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

Spring Cleaning

8 Apr

I’m glad we are finally getting some good weather for the weekend because I have a lot of farm spring cleaning to do.  To start, I had to get some gas for the Ranger.  Unfortunately, even once I put gas in it, it didn’t start.  I hooked it to the battery charger for a half an hour, and we’re good to go!

I had walked the fences the other day.

I found a place where the goats could just walk under it.  I can’t believe that I still find these places after so many years, but I do.

I’ll have to see if I can get my dad to help me with the branch on the fence.

Then there’s this.  I actually had some goats get out the other day.  I’m grateful for my neighbor who put them in since I was at work.

I talked to my nephew about driving some wooden posts really deep to give me something to attach my panel to.  I think that’s why it fell–just too much grass pulled it down with the weight.

Until he gets the backhoe back home from a tiling job, my snow fence hobbling will have to hold them.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

10 May

The items for this week’s scavenger hunt are:  details, precious, hungry, water, and wide angle.

Details:  I believe this is a meadowlark.  It’s not the best photo to see the details, but I think it’s good enough.  (I hope.)

Precious:  After taking the picture of the chicks in the wine glass last week, I realized I don’t have an adorable teacup, but my mom and sister were kind enough to think of me when they found these at goodwill.

Hungry:  These little ones are really good at eating a lot of food.  I’m filling their feeders twice each day.  They’re good at wasting it too.  I should get a more efficient feeder for them.  It won’t be long until I have to separate them into a couple of pens to give them more room.  It won’t be long after that when I let them out.

Water:  There’s water in the ditch!  There’s enough water for the sun to reflect off of it.

Wide Angle:  I know this isn’t truly a wide angle shot, but it does give you an idea of how big my back hill is.  Marley is on the left and Millie on the right.
